Whirlpool’s Laundry Appliances Cause Positive Change Amongst Students

Did you know that as many as 20% of students in the United States don’t have an easy way of cleaning their clothes? Unfortunately, this problem is causing more and more kids to miss school – ultimately affecting their grades, education, and future. That’s why Whirlpool is taking matters into their own hands and proving how a reliable washing machine can produce higher attendance rates.

Finding the Solution

For the second year in a row Whirlpool’s Care Counts™ program reached out to schools and installed washers and dryers within their facilities. This program has been helpful for students without access to laundry pairs at home or those who are unable to have their clothes washed throughout the week. It also ensures that dirty clothes will never be the reason that holds a student back from their education.

Whirlpool’s Communications Brand Manager, Jennifer Tayebi, stated, "Every day students across the country struggle with a variety of different factors that inhibit their academic performance. By placing washer and dryers in schools, we hope to eliminate one of those obstacles, so kids can focus on learning." The results show that something as simple as a washer and dryer can absolutely help kids focus on learning as well as reduce absenteeism. During the 2016-17 program, not only did class attendance increase by 91% for high-risk students, but class participation surged by 89%. Care Counts™ has had such major success that Teach for America joined forces with Whirlpool to help even more schools in need for the 2017-18 academic year!

How You Can Help

Whirlpool may be the laundry appliance brand you look to when researching an excellent washer for sale, but they do more than sell washing machines at great prices. They legitimately care for their customers and focus largely on designing new technologies and innovations that fit the lifestyle of you and your family. Whether you are wanting to purchase a stackable washer and dryer, donate to the Care Counts™ Program, or even just spread the word through social media, these are all valuable ways you can support Whirlpool and its effective charities.
