HAYWARD, Calif. — Laundry equipment distributor Western State Design has pledged to donate $1 per pound of rated capacity for all Dexter Laundry coin-op washers and dryers that it sells through year’s end to a charity benefiting Armed Forces veterans and their families.
The donations will be given to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which has provided close to $150 million in support of families of military personnel lost in service, and for severely wounded military personnel and veterans, since being created in 2000. A full 100% of donations go directly to the Fund’s programs.
“We are very supportive of our veterans who have sacrificed so much in service to our nation,” says Western State Design President Dennis W. Mack, whose company started the campaign at the Clean Show. “This year, we have decided to support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, and we are pleased to learn that their most recent effort is a new treatment center for traumatic brain injuries, which has affected many veterans.”
“Dexter Laundry equipment is made in the USA, and we feel it is an honor to support our veterans through this campaign,” adds Tom Marks, Western’s executive vice president.
