USA: Carrier has donated more than 500 ductless air conditioners this summer to the US charity Habitat for Humanity.
Carrier has teamed up with US pro football legend and longtime Habitat supporter, Warrick Dunn, in Atlanta to celebrate the donation. For 20 years, Dunn’s Home for the Holidays programme has provided single mothers working toward their first home purchase with financial assistance.
“I’ve been working with Habitat for Humanity for many years and appreciate all they do across the county to help families achieve the dream of affordable home ownership,” said Warrick Dunn. “Working with Carrier feels like a natural extension of our efforts as they offer a product that brings comfort to families in homes everywhere – and something our families often struggle to afford,” he added.
Meredith Emmerich, managing director of Carrier, ductless and VRF systems, spearheaded the campaign to donate the systems and is working with Dunn to spread the word.
“We understand the importance of being comfortable in your home and how good it can feel to turn on the cool air in the middle of the summer to relax and refresh. To work with Habitat to provide this comfort to hundreds of homeowners is a great joy for Carrier and one of the highlights of our year,” said Emmerich.
Carrier began its relationship with Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity 20 years ago, where it has donated a home comfort system to every home it’s built. Since then, Carrier and United Technologies have sponsored Habitat home builds across the country and thousands of employees have volunteered their time to support the construction.
