Miele Donates Washing Machines to the Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia ReStore


Miele USA 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, located at 2318 Washington Avenue. 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,” said Glenn Liacouras, Miele professional regional director. “With US 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.”

Liacouras added, “Since 1899, Miele has been dedicated to fulfilling its founding promise of ‘Immer Besser’ – a German phrase meaning ‘Forever Better.’ That ideal is uniquely aligned with Habitat’s mission to make Philadelphia forever better by transforming lives and the city through the construction and repair of homes in partnership with families in need and uniting all Philadelphians around the cause of affordable housing.”

Offering short cycle wash programs, high temperature disinfection (up to 200°F) and high spin extraction (G Force up to 526Gs), the Little Giant system provides a superior hygienic clean for residential or professional use.
