Ex-Cell Kaiser donates canned goods and custom branded receptacle.
Ex-Cell Kaiser filled one of their best-selling 24 gallon steel Kaleidoscope receptacles with canned goods and donated both to the Village of Franklin Park, IL on December 15th in support of the Village’s Holiday Food Drive for the Leyden Food Pantry.
The employees of Ex-Cell Kaiser wanted to make a donation during the holidays to a local food drive when they discovered the Village of Franklin Park planned to collect non-perishable food items in the Village Hall Lobby to support the Leyden Food Pantry.
This idea was very popular throughout the company, “We originally talked about filling one of our Kaleidoscope’s with canned goods to set a goal of how many canned goods to donate but quickly realized the Village might like to keep the can to receive donations”, said owner Janet Kaiser.
After reaching out to the Franklin Park Utilities Commissioner Joe “Tiny” Lauro, donation details were confirmed and Ex-Cell customized graphics on the can being donated so the village could use the can to receive donations all season.
The Village of Franklin Park was very supportive of this Ex-Cell Kaiser donation and Joe visited the Leyden Food Pantry to let them know they would be receiving this food donation. Joe said, “The person I talked to at the food pantry was tearing up a bit when I told them about this small donation because they had very little food on their shelves at the time.”
This donation effort was open to all Ex-Cell Kaiser employees and when the canned goods were finally collected for delivery the overflowing donations topped 237 pounds of assorted non-perishable food items.
