Mannington associates recently finished a pledge drive to support the work of World Central Kitchen, a hunger relief organization that heads to the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian and community crises. It is now in Poland serving hot meals to Ukrainian refugees – mostly women, children, and senior citizens, and working on the Ukrainian side of the border to deliver food to those who remain there.
Amtico International, based in Coventry, UK, is also holding a pledge drive, with donations going to the Ukrainian relief efforts of the British Red Cross.
In total, $66,000 is being donated to these two entities, including Mannington’s 50 percent match of donations made.
“The war in Ukraine is causing a massive humanitarian crisis. We feel compelled to help in some way because Caring and Doing the Right Thing are part of our culture,” says Keith Campbell, Mannington Chairman of the Board. “It’s in our nature to want to help others.”
