DuPont's Collaboration with Habitat for Humanity International Continues
Successful Collaboration in 2019 Inspires Efforts to Help Families Through Affordable Housing
DuPont revealed it will continue its partnership with Habitat for Humanity International, building on the geographic reach of last year's collaboration.
By providing construction solutions and supporting employees who volunteer with Habitat for Humanity International, this collaboration will continue to enable families to thrive in safe, comfortable and healthy living spaces.
"As a purpose-driven company, we can and should bring all our resources to make a meaningful difference in the lives of people around the world," said Patrick McCrummen, DuPont global community impact leader. "By leveraging our assets — including financial resources, skilled volunteers, materials, innovation and intellectual capital — we can meet community needs and help people to thrive."
DuPont's Performance Building Solutions business provides insulation, air sealing and weather barrier products that enable homes to maintain better temperature, eliminate air infiltration and protect against moisture intrusion. For homeowners, this can translate to lower energy bills, better interior air quality free from allergens, and protection from mold and mildew growth. Ultimately, this creates comfortable, safer living conditions in more affordable housing.
"Everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to live," said Tim Lacey, DuPont vice president and general manager, Performance Building Solutions and Corian Design. "We're thrilled to continue this partnership, not only through the use of our products but more importantly through the use of our hands. Employees look forward to and seek community involvement which gives them great pride as they build homes, communities and hope for those who need a place to live."
The COVID-19 pandemic has left many people struggling financially and unable to find affordable shelter or maintain their current living conditions. Now more than ever, this global partnership is critical for building and improving communities that help keep people in their homes and stabilize neighborhoods.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has shined an important spotlight on the need for all families to have a safe, decent and affordable place to live," said Julie Laird Davis, vice president, corporate and cause marketing partnerships, Habitat for Humanity International. "DuPont's generous donation of products and their continued support of employee volunteerism will help local Habitat organizations build sustainable homes that are not only affordable when purchased, but cost-efficient in the long run. Habitat thanks DuPont for their continued partnership."
