At Danby, our goal is to always strive to Do the Right Thing, whether that is for the local communities we operate in, the countries we sell our products in, or on the larger worldwide stage that we’re a part of.
Which is why, this Holiday Season, our monthly Giveaway transformed to become Danby’s 10 Days of Giving Back. We helped to lend a hand in 10 communities across North America by donating 10 products, every day, for 10 days in December. That’s a total of 100 of our top selling appliances and other products for the charities, foundations, shelters, etc. that you nominated throughout November and December.
Starting December 1, and for 10 business days thereafter, we randomly selected a nomination and contacted them for details on how they would like to receive their donation. The donation for each day was 10 of our products (ie. 10 mini fridges, or 10 microwaves, etc.). Included in each bundle will be about 100 Danby masks to aid in the fight against COVID-19.
The full list of winners and the Danby products they received are below!
