Today, Whirlpool Corporation announced it will continue its longtime relationship with Habitat for Humanity through 2018. This marks the 19th year the appliance manufacturer and nonprofit organization collaboration to support families in need of affordable housing, with Whirlpool Corporation committing to providing a new range and refrigerator for every new Habitat home built in the U.S. and Canada.
Over the past 18 years, Whirlpool has partnered with Habitat for Humanity, committing more than $101 million to programs in over 45 different countries. In the United States and Canada, Whirlpool has donated more than 184,000 ranges and refrigerators to new Habitat homes, serving more than 100,000 families, according to the Whirlpool Corporation website.
Wells Fargo has reached its goal to build and improve 1,000 homes by 2020 more than two years early, thanks to volunteers like Sammie Griffin.
If it wasn’t for Paul Manyok and his family, Sammie Griffin might not be as heavily involved with Habitat for Humanity as she is today. But, like many of Wells Fargo’s volunteer team members, she found there are certain families whose stories have stayed with her and who inspire her to continue helping others.
