Cuisinart Supports Al Roker's Charity Campaign
June 17, 2011,
STAMFORD, Conn.-Cuisinart has made a contribution to Al Roker's Lend a Hand good-will trip, an annual charity benefit by "The Today Show."
Now in its 10th consecutive year, the Lend a Hand program provides aid to small charities that work to improve conditions in their respective communities across the nation. Cuisinart and Waring, both brands under Conair, have donated $10,000 worth of kitchen electrics and cookware to the cause, which will benefit Culinary Training Academy in Las Vegas. The cookware sets, food processors, stand mixers, and ice cream makers are intended to help the academy to continue to offer low-cost hospitality training to students, an affordable restaurant and catering service, and free meals to needy children.
In addition to this donation, Cuisinart and Waring have given products to the Community Kitchens of Birmingham, Ala., as part of its work with Lend a Hand.
