MIAMI, FL — Cosentino Group partnered with 30 nonprofits for its 'Flavor of Fall' event series held late last year, raising funds for a wide variety of charitable organizations that serve the needs of their community. To celebrate the launch of its expanded Dekton Industrial Collection and newly un- veiled Dekton Stonika Collection, the com- pany, whose North American headquarters is based here, hosted 30 different fundraisers at Cosentino City Centers across the U.S. and Canada, with each benefiting a different charity. The series kicked off in Pittsburgh, PA on October 9th with an event to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh.

"Fall marks a season of gratitude and thanksgiving. Each of these events allows us to say thank you and give back to each of the communities that have been such valued partners.

Kesseböhmer USA Supports Hurricane Relief Efforts WILMINGTON, NC — Cabinet storage sup- plier Kesseböhmer USA, based here, recently completed a fundraiser campaign to benefit the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina (CENC) in the wake of two hurricanes that left many of the state's residents in grave distress. In an effort to assist the community in the aftermath of Hurricanes Florence and Michael, the company created an online campaign, promising to match donations dollar for dollar up to $10,000, with the call for help promoted actively through the company's social media pages. The fundraiser ran from October 15 through November 30, with a special push for "Giving Tuesday." All monies collected were donated to CENC to help provide food, hygiene items and cleaning supplies to those most affected by the storms. "The Food Bank of CENC's reach is vast and enables us to give back to our community and beyond," stated David Ivey, managing director of sales and marketing for Kesseböhmer USA Inc., who noted that the Food Bank was select- ed for its ability to provide healthy, accessible nutrition to those in need, which then allowed those affected by the storms to allocate their precious financial resources to the rebuilding process.
