Wrightflow Volunteers Renovate Salvation Army Homeless Center in U.K
June 19, 2019
Wrightflow Technologies, a unit of IDEX which manufactures pumps for beverage, food, chemical and industrial applications, continued their partnership with the Salvation Army earlier this month.
Ten employees from the Customer service, Engineering and Shop floor teams volunteered during the weekend to help improve the overall look of the Day Center for the homeless in Eastbourne, United Kingdom.
Located only a couple of miles away from the Wrightflow headquarters, employees prepared and cleaned the Day Center before repainting the interior walls and skirting boards.
The Day Center is vital in the community as volunteers use it to help and feed the homeless. The Centre provides hot meals, health clinics, showers and laundry facilities, use of computers and telephone.
Since 2017, Wrightflow employees have worked closely with the Salvation Army to collect toys during Christmas, to pack Christmas boxes for disadvantaged families, and to raise money through bake sales.
The Salvation Army has been fighting against social inequality and transforming lives worldwide for over 150 years. Today, the Salvation Army is active in virtually every corner of the world, serving the less fortunate in more than 130 countries.
