Arcola, Ill. (PRWEB) February 22, 2017
The Libman Company, an American manufacturer of household and commercial cleaning products, has donated over four thousand of its products to 83 non-profit organizations across the country including 46 Pets for the Elderly partner animal shelters, all the American Cancer Society’s 36 Hope Lodges, and the Eastern Illinois Food Bank. The donation is just one of many the company makes throughout the year to charities and non-profit organizations that can benefit from the company’s many cleaning products.
“We are extremely grateful to Libman for their generous donation to our participating shelters. Of course, it is critical to keep the shelters clean for the health and well-being of the animals, staff and visitors and we value Libman’s generosity,” said Susan Kurowski, executive director at the Pets for the Elderly Foundation.
“We are so grateful to Libman for providing this generous donation,” said Susan Brinkley, director, Hope Lodge Expansion & Operations. There is never a charge to the patient to stay at one of the Society’s Lodges but it does take resources to keep the Lodges operating and donations like Libman’s help us to continue to provide a nurturing, comfortable environment for patients during their stay. Not having to worry about lodging allows them to focus on what is most important—fighting cancer,” said Brinkley.
“Libman’s donations offer our clients access to great products that they often forgo since they operate on limited budgets,” said Kristen Bosch, VP of development and community partnerships. “We’re so grateful to Libman for their continued generosity to Eastern Illinois Foodbank.”
“We recognize the numerous organizations that are positively impacting the lives of humans and animals every day,” said Andrew Libman, president of The Libman Company. “These organizations are valued as an integral part of their communities and we are proud to support them,” said Libman.
