Annual Major Spring Appliance Sale from Whirlpool Will Benefit United Way Campaign

One of the great benefits of having the world’s largest manufacturer of major home appliances right in your backyard is the opportunity to buy some of the company’s products not only at a discount, but to also know that the money you pay is helping boost the company’s United Way campaign.

United Way of Southwest Michigan has established the dates for the Whirlpool Corporation Spring Appliance Sale benefiting the company’s 2019 Employee United Way Campaign.

If you are in the market for a solid deal, make plans to hit the sale on Saturday and Sunday, May 18th and 19th to find the perfect option for you.
