CARRIER SUPPORTS HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Since 1902, we have been committed to making the world a better and more comfortable place to live. And, as we innovate to help solve the planet’s comfort challenges, we do our best to positively impact society as well. That's why we have forged a decades-long relationship with Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat for Humanity has helped more than 29 million people worldwide build or improve the place they call home. Empowering families through its core values of strength, stability, self-reliance and shelter, Habitat provides a hand up – not a hand out - to homeowners who help build their own houses and pay an affordable mortgage.
In 2020, Habitat homes built in Indianapolis by Carrier employees received equipment from our Healthy Homes suite of indoor air quality products including our Infinity® Air Purifier, smoke/CO alarms, premium filter cabinets and bypass humidifiers. Carrier has donated a system in every Habitat home built in Indianapolis since 1995. In addition, our employees have been building one home in Indianapolis each year since 1998. See the home dedication video here.
Carrier has supported Habitat nationwide with more than $3 million in donations, comfort systems for the Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter Work Project builds in Indiana and Tennessee, ductless systems in Houston for Hurricane Harvey re-building efforts, and countless volunteer hours.
Carrier is proud to have participated in Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project multiple times. Each year, hundreds of volunteers, alongside President and Mrs. Carter and future Habitat homeowners, help build a housing community for families in need of affordable homes. In 2018, we built several homes in South Bend, Indiana and in 2019, we were fortunate to do the same in Nashville, Tennessee— both times donating employee hours and equipment.
As part of its longstanding commitment to giving back to the communities where we work and live, Carrier donated 100 heating and cooling systems to Habitat for Humanity families impacted by the historic flooding that ravaged the Houston area following Hurricane Harvey in 2017. One of the region’s leading Carrier Authorized Dealers, Fresh Air, installed these systems, helping families resume normal lives in their homes. The donation and volunteerism efforts continue a decades-long legacy of support for one of the world’s iconic philanthropies.
Carrier and Habitat both understand that Home is the Key to health for families. With help from Carrier, as well as funds raised through its Home is the Key awareness campaign, Habitat homeowners will achieve the independence they need to build better – and healthier – lives for themselves and their families.
