Almo Corporation

Despite pandemic-related challenges faced in 2020, employees at Almo Corporation, a distributor of audio and visual equipment, focus on giving back through participation in local and national outreach efforts. Blood donations, food and toy drives, and participation in physical activities like walking and golf charity events framed up the fall and holiday season for Almo employees.

“There are so many people in need right now, and our employees recognize this and want to help in every capacity possible—I’m humbled by their passion and willingness to donate time and resources with gratitude,” explains Warren Chaiken, the company’s president and CEO. “Our business model centers around serving the needs of our customers and community. Almo employees are living this model every day. Having the ability to improve the lives of others is a powerful privilege that comes with a sense of obligation. Acting on this allows us to create meaning by making the lives of others better, whether they are loved ones, people in the community, or people across the nation.”

Food donation: Almo donated nearly $4,000 to the Somerton Interfaith Food Bank in Philadelphia while making donations of non-perishable food items to local food banks across the country.

Toy drive: Almo hosted a toy drive to benefit the Philadelphia-area Pottstown Cluster of Religious Charities and St. Christopher’s Hospital Oncology Unit. Maryland Marine Toys for Tots also received donations.

Blood drive: Almo teams across the country donated as part of the Red Cross Blood Donation program.

American Red Cross Disaster Fund: With the number of hurricanes and wildfires across the country (some affecting Almo employees, partners, and customers), many Almo employees chose to make monetary donations to the American Red Cross Disaster Fund, offering support to those in dire need.

Anti-Defamation League Virtual Walk: ADL Philadelphia hosted a virtual walk to help build community even from home. Many Almo employees participated in this walk to help while improving their own strength and health.

Golf Classic: Almo employees participated in the Police Athletic League of Philadelphia (PAL) 29th annual Golf Classic. The proceeds raised by the event helped cover operational expenses for the youth served during these uncertain times. Almo manufacturing partners also sponsored this event, including Samsung, EMA, Midea, Galanz, Danby, Sharp, and Bosch.
