Miele Donates Washing Machines to Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia ReStore

Corporate gift supports affordable housing, reinvestment in disadvantaged Philadelphia communities

PRINCETON, N.J. —  Miele USA reports it is donating a shipment of professional-grade Little Giant washing machines to Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia to help celebrate the re-opening of its popular ReStore retail location.

The Little Giant washing machines will be available for significantly discounted prices at the Southwest City Center Habitat ReStore. After being closed since March 14 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ReStore reopened on Tuesday, June 9.

The Habitat ReStore sells new and gently used furniture, appliances, building supplies, home goods and more to the general public, with 100% of profits used to build and repair homes in Philadelphia.

Through its ReStore profit alone, Habitat has worked alongside homeowners and volunteers to repair 42 homes and build two new homes in Philadelphia.

“Particularly when so many families are struggling from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the damaged economy, Miele is humbled to be collaborating with a long-standing community leader like Habitat for Humanity,” says Glenn Liacouras, Miele Professional regional director.

“With U.S. headquarters in Princeton, Miele employs hundreds of people residing in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. This community is our home, and we are proud to know that proceeds will contribute to strengthening affordable housing in Philadelphia.”
