Nelson Peltz, despite his success in business, dropped out of Wharton School to go work for his father’s wholesale frozen foods distribution business. Within a decade, he built the business from a $2.5 million income to over $140 million. He began to look for acquisitions in the 1980s and leveraged his investment capital through Michael Milken’s high-yield bonds. He began to make investments that eventually led to a multi-million dollar fortune.
The Salvation Army is another nonprofit that the foundations support. In May, they donated 350 frozen turkeys, yams, corn bread mixes, and canned goods. The food donations will go to the Salvation Army community centre in West Palm Beach as well as through a drive-thru window. The Salvation Army has a well-deserved reputation for helping local families and residents.
