Charity helps military veterans transition to civilian life through foodservice equipment repair industry career training.
On behalf of global ice machine and dispenser manufacturer, Ice-O-Matic, Scotsman Industries has donated $10,000 dollars to A Legacy For Learning Corp. (ALFLC).
The organization works with military veterans to provide scholarship-funded training for career placement within the Foodservice Equipment Repair Industry.
“Our heroic Veterans can sometimes face challenges as they return from service and adjust to civilian life,” said Keith Kelly, Ice-O-Matic’s senior vice president of sales, marketing and customer satisfaction. “Ice-O-Matic is honored to support ALFLC’s mission to provide military personnel the tools and resources needed to secure employment upon returning home.”
ALFLC was founded in 2012 after CEO and President Carol Multack, was stunned by the unemployment statistics for the nation’s Veteran population. Market research led Multack to the commercial foodservice industry, an industry in desperate need of skilled workers—specifically equipment repair technicians.
Veterans who are accepted into the ALFLC scholarship program are provided a variety of services, including training courses, in-person interviews with one of nearly 1,000 partner organizations as well as access to a job database of service companies.
“Assisting these men and women in gaining valuable skills within the foodservice equipment repair industry is an incredibly rewarding feeling,” said Kelly.
