DuPont continues a legacy of impact started by its Performance Building Solutions business. Products including Styrofoam™ Brand insulation, DuPont Weathermate™ Homewrap and Great Stuff™ Insulating Foam Sealant have become work site staples at Habitat builds across North America. These products provide increased thermal, air and moisture protection, which helps lower energy bills and creates comfortable and safer living conditions for people around the world.
“Providing safe, affordable shelter is critical to many communities across the globe and we are proud to collaborate with Habitat for Humanity International to help them build efficient, sustainable homes,” said Patrick McCrummen, DuPont’s Global Community Impact Leader. “What’s also special about this partnership is that it offers volunteer opportunities for our employees to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives in their local communities.”
The company also actively supports major Habitat programs like the Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project and the annual Home Builders Blitz.
“By partnering with DuPont, Habitat can better address the worldwide need for decent, affordable homes,” said Julie Davis, vice president for corporate and cause marketing. “Our goal is to provide peace of mind for homeowners through better, more efficient designs, and partnerships like this one help us accomplish that.”
Habitat for Humanity is a faith-based organization that provides assistance to families and individuals in need of building or improving a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes shoulder-to-shoulder with volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.
