Celebrated the conclusion of Global Habitat Build Project of Whirlpool

Jeff M. Fettig
Whirlpool Corporation is celebrating the conclusion of its first-ever Global Habitat Build Project — a project which engaged more than 200 Whirlpool Corporation employee volunteers in 14 Habitat for Humanity home build projects in eight countries. The project was coordinated to recognize the many contributions of the company’s former CEO, Jeff Fettig, who retired on Oct. 31 of this year, and to celebrate the 17-year partnership between Habitat for Humanity International and Whirlpool Corporation. Since 1999, Whirlpool Corporation’s partnership with Habitat for Humanity International has supported the organization’s work through product donations, financial contributions, and volunteerism on the part of Whirlpool Corporation employees.
«What better way to recognize the standard of giving back set by our Chairman and former CEO, Jeff Fettig, than to collectively build homes around the world in his honor – said Jeff Noel, the corporate vice president of communications & public affairs for Whirlpool Corporation. – At the same time, we’re celebrating our long-standing relationship with Habitat for Humanity. Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International, gave his time to hammer nails alongside our employees, honoring our collaborative work building homes and positively impacting society for nearly two decades.»
