Maytag Day of Dependability centerpiece


On Maytag brand’s annual Day of Dependability, Maytag employees from all over the country volunteer at Boys & Girls Clubs in their communities to make an impact through the power of positive leadership.

From serving 200 kids a Thanksgiving meal or just being there to help with homework, over 6,000 team members turn 3 volunteer days into brighter futures at local Clubs. Maytag believes when kids and teens are inspired to dream big by dependable mentors, they can achieve anything.

Maytag Feel Good Fridge logo


According to Feeding America, one in six children experience food insecurity. Maytag knows dependability starts with ensuring that all Americans have access to their most basic needs, especially nourishing food. That’s why Maytag, with help from Boys & Girls Club of America, launched the Feel Good Fridge program in 2021 giving kids and families a food source they can depend on. The Maytag® Feel Good Fridge is a refrigerator that is stocked with healthy food for Club members and their families to take when in-need.

Maytag has placed 40 Feel Good Fridges in Boys and Girls Clubs of America, with plans to place another 10 by the end of 2023. Each refrigerator comes with a small grant to get the Club started in filling the fridge with nourishing food, and the Clubs will use local relationships and community support to continue to keep the fridges full. Each Maytag® Feel Good Fridge has helped provide healthy food to an estimated 120 Club kids per day.


Maytag® Feel Good Fridge, a refrigerator stocked with fresh foods at 40 Clubs nationwide, is helping Boys & Girls Club youth discover that they like spinach, carrots, yogurt and more. When young people have dependable access to nourishing meals and snacks, they’re able to focus on whatever comes their way – a STEM experiment, an impromptu game of basketball, raising their hand to speak up on a topic they care about, being there for a friend.

Watch the video to see the impact the Maytag® Feel Good Fridge program is having at the Kenosha, Wisconsin Club.
