Following its involvement in ProMat 2015, a material handling trade show held March 23-26 in Chicago, The Raymond Corporation donated 16 pallets of nonperishable food and personal care items to the Addison Community Switchboard, a nonprofit organization in Addison, Illinois, that provides emergency assistance to residents.

Approximately 12,000 pounds of food and essentials were collected, valued at more than $14,000. Donated items also were part of Raymond’s display at the trade show, which included a mock warehouse stocked with pallets of product.

“The generous contribution from Raymond will greatly help the Addison Community Switchboard serve families in need of assistance,” said Jim Lombardo, president of the Addison Community Switchboard.

The Addison Community Switchboard provides for underserved families and senior citizens in the community through a food pantry, clothes closet, holiday program and other resources. It is entirely funded by grants and donations from individuals and organizations, such as local schools, churches and businesses.
