GLEN MILLS, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–In every community across the United States, there are people who do not
know where they will sleep each night or where their next meal will come
from. To recognize and help raise awareness for National Hunger and
Homelessness Awareness Week, observed on November 12-20, 2016, employees
from Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA), a leading global supplier of
liquid and powder coatings, swapped their laptops for ladles and
fulfilled the Ministry of Caring’s lunch service needs at its Emmanuel
Dining Room in Wilmington, Delaware.
The Ministry of Caring is a nonprofit organization dedicated to
supporting those living in poverty in the greater Wilmington area. Its
Emmanuel Dining Room helps combat hunger and serves hundreds of
nutritious meals a day, in restaurant fashion, at no cost and with no
questions asked, 365 days a year.
“We, at Emmanuel Dining Room, are passionate about helping those in need
in our community,” said Dorine Menchhofer, Emmanuel Dining Room
Associate Program Director. “We are thankful for the support of donors
and volunteers that make an impact every single day.”
Employees at Axalta’s North American Headquarters also hosted a
non-perishable food drive to collect canned goods for Emmanuel Dining
Room’s busy holiday season. And employees at its Mount Clemens, Michigan
plant also held a food benefit for the Panther Pantry at Neil Reid High
School in Macomb County, Michigan. The pantry provides food to students
and families of the high school who have an emergency food need.
