INDIANAPOLIS — Carrier Corp. and its employees supported Habitat for Humanity’s latest home on the northeast side of Indianapolis. Carrier supported the construction with hundreds of employee volunteer hours, along with a donation of home comfort products.
Gee Hunter, who moved into the home with his partner and two children, was on hand earlier this month to watch a handful of volunteers from Carrier and across central Indiana put the final touches on his home.
“We’ve worked so hard to achieve this dream and are so thankful to Carrier and all the other volunteers who made it a reality,” said Hunter. “My children can’t wait to move into their own rooms.”
Carrier, through product donations and the continued investment of employees’ time, is committed to working with nonprofit organizations to help build stronger communities around the country.
“Carrier has been recognized as an expert in keeping people comfortable in their homes for more than a century, and helping to build and outfit another Habitat home is a wonderful opportunity to share our expertise,” said David Meyers, vice president, sales, Carrier. “We’ve been supporting Habitat locally for more than 20 years, and this project again reminds us the power of giving back to the community we call home.”
Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity expressed its appreciation for the support of its mission.
“Carrier and its team embody what it means to invest as a company in their community,” said Jim Morris, president and CEO, Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity. “As a longtime supporter, Carrier has once again helped provide affordable homeownership to local families through hundreds of hard-working volunteers, quality heating and cooling systems, and generous financial support. This continued commitment helps advance the Habitat for Humanity mission to build homes, communities, and hope.”
Earlier in 2017, Carrier donated more than 500 ductless home comfort systems to more than a dozen Habitat chapters nationwide.
