Carrier gives HVAC system to Habitat for Humanity project
Carrier Corp. donated HVAC equipment and employees volunteered their time on a Habitat for Humanity building project in northeast Indianapolis.
Gee Hunter, his son Keyonte Hunter and the rest of the family moved into the home in December 2017.
“We’ve worked so hard to achieve this dream and are so thankful to Carrier and all the other volunteers who made it a reality,” said Gee Hunter. “My children can’t wait to move into their own rooms.”
David Meyers, Carrier vice president of sales, said the company is a longtime supporter of Habitat, which promotes home ownership among people of limited means.
“Carrier has been recognized as expert in keeping people comfortable in their homes for more than a century and helping to build and outfit another Habitat home is a wonderful opportunity to share our expertise,” Meyers said. “We’ve been supporting Habitat locally for more than 20 years and this project again reminds us the power of giving back to the community we call home.”
Officials with the local Habitat chapter said they appreciated Carrier’s continuous support of its organization.
“Carrier and its team embody what it means to invest as a company in their community,” said Jim Morris, president and CEO of Greater Indianapolis Habitat for Humanity. “As a longtime supporter, Carrier has once again helped provide affordable homeownership to local families through hundreds of hard-working volunteers, quality heating and cooling systems and generous financial support. This continued commitment helps advance the Habitat for Humanity mission to build homes, communities and hope.”
