Whirlpool & Habitat For Humanity Encourage You to Every day, Care
It seems as we get into the holiday season, we are reminded more and more of how we can make a positive impact on our community by volunteering, making donations and more. While this is truly wonderful, it is important not to let our efforts go to the wayside for the rest of the year.
Whirlpool’s Every day, care Project
Whirlpool is dedicated to helping families thrive! They believe that the simple acts of care have the power to change the world. What acts of care do you bring to your community to help make the world a better place?
I do the best I can with the time that I have to make it worthwhile to help others. As a mother it is so important to me to let my children get involved as well to help those less fortunate than us! One of our Every day, care acts is helping our church’s food pantry. After hearing about how demand for food was up by almost 20% in our state, I couldn’t help but help. The children and I then help to assemble food baskets for the food pantry to be given out the first week of every month.
A wonderful organization that I would love to get involved with is Habitat for Humanity. Whirlpool first partnered with Habitat for Humanity in 1999. In their 16 years of partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Whirlpool has developed active programs in more than 45 countries with a commitment of more than $90 million. In the United States and Canada, Whirlpool has donated over 168,000 ranges and refrigerators to new Habitat homes, serving more than 85,000 families AND has donated more than 41,000 products to Habitat ReStore retail outlets, helping raise nearly $5.7 million!! The company has engaged thousands of employee volunteers, sponsored nearly 150 homes and donated products to more than 75,000 Habitat families Europe, Middle East and Africa. Whirlpool plans to support the work of Habitat around the world through product donations, financial contribution and/or volunteerism.
Habitat by the Numbers
• 85,000+ families directly impacted around the world
• 8,000+ Whirlpool employees who volunteer with Habitat annually
• $90 million = the value of Whirlpool Corporation’s current commitment
Habitat is continually looking for volunteers to help support their mission. Search for volunteer opportunities at a Habitat for Humanity near you!
ALSO, many local Habitat for Humanity affiliates operate ReStores, which sell reusable and surplus building materials, furniture and appliances to the public. The proceeds fund local Habitat house construction.
