Carrier is supporting Habitat for Humanity International’s “Home is the Key” campaign with an initial $250,000 donation. The company will continue to raise awareness throughout the month of April by engaging its distributor and dealer network and employees through advertising, social media and digital outreach efforts.
Launched in 2017, “Home is Key” aims to unlock more families’ futures with homeownership – a fundamental steppingstone to better health, more financial freedom and security. It is one of Habitat for Humanity’s signature fundraising and awareness campaigns, and takes place annually in April.
“Habitat for Humanity is an organization that is very dear to us at Carrier, and we have been fortunate enough to be able to support its efforts for the last several decades,” said Justin Keppy, President, NA Residential & Light Commercial, Carrier. “The Home is the Key campaign is designed to inspire individuals and businesses to donate to Habitat for Humanity during the month of April to help more families build a decent, affordable place to call home. In addition to the many fundraising and awareness efforts we have planned, we are engaging our employees and distributor and dealer networks to support this campaign.”
Along with its support of “Home is the Key,” Carrier employees have helped build one Habitat home a year in Indianapolis since 1998, and donated an HVAC system to every Habitat home built in the city since 1995. In addition, Carrier has supported Habitat for Humanity International as a Gold Level Sponsor at the 2018 and 2019 Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, and during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Carrier donated 100 ductless units to assist in the re-build. Carrier has provided financial support, product donations – including from Carrier’s Healthy Homes suite of indoor air quality solutions – and countless employee volunteer hours to local Habitat organizations.
“We’re proud to have the support of companies like Carrier as we look to continuously help homeowners create stronger and healthier lives for themselves and their families,” said Julie Laird Davis, Vice President of Corporate and Cause Marketing Partnerships at Habitat for Humanity International. “Habitat has built a strong relationship with Carrier over the last several decades and we’re grateful for the contributions they’ve made to our efforts. We are looking forward to making an impact together again during this year’s Home is the Key initiative.”
