Carrier helps flood-hit Houston families
USA: Carrier has donated 100 home comfort systems to families impacted by the flooding that ravaged the Houston area as a result of Hurricane Harvey last year.
One of the region’s leading Carrier dealers, Fresh Air, is currently installing these systems, helping 100 Habitat for Humanity families resume normal lives in their homes.
Habitat for Humanity is an international, non-governmental, and nonprofit organisation, founded in 1976 to address the issues of poverty housing all over the world.
The donation is seen as part of Carrier’s commitment to give back to the communities where it operates.
“We find ourselves uniquely fortunate to be able to donate essential climate control systems that help provide comfortable homes to so many families that suffered tremendous losses during and after Hurricane Harvey,” said Matthew Pine, president, Carrier, residential.
In addition to Fresh Air installing the donated systems, employees from Carrier’s local distributor, Carrier Enterprise, helped construct a home in Houston to help another Habitat family achieve the dream of home ownership.
Carrier began its relationship more than 20 years ago with Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity, 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. In 2017, Carrier donated more than 500 ductless air conditioning systems to hundreds of Habitat families across the country.
