Aroma in the Community
Giving Back to Our Community
We know it's not only about designing products that enhance and enrich our customers' lives at home, but also about doing what we can to build a better community around us. Thanks to the support of our customers, we've been able to give back to our community where we can.
Rice & Rice Cooker Donations to WIC
For the last three years Aroma and the USA Rice Federation have teamed up to donate 1200 digital rice cookers along with several bags of brown rice to San Diego Red Cross WIC (Women, Infants and Children) offices in an effort to help families prepare healthy, low-cost meals at home. WIC is a USDA-funded special supplemental nutrition program providing monthly benefits to 37,000 San Diegans in need of family assistance. The donations help save local families time and work in the kitchen, giving them more time to gather around the table as a family to enjoy healthy, home cooked meals.
Missionaries of Charity Donations
For the last few years Aroma has donated food and other supplies to the Missionaries of Charity organization in Tijuana, Mexico. The Missionaries of Charity congregation was originally founded by Mother Teresa and is active in 133 countries. The charity in Tijuana provides educational and spiritual instruction for children and care to the elderly homeless. Each year Aroma employees help take the food and supplies to the charity, which gives Aroma the incredible opportunity to meet and thank the generous and loving members of this organization. The items donated are based on specific requests of the charity to help it better serve its members.
