Daikin North America LLC helps support Habitat for Humanity’s 31st annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project.

Daikin is supporting Habitat for Humanity’s 31st annual Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in North Texas the week of Oct. 5-11, 2014. Throughout the week, thousands of volunteers from around the world will join President and Mrs. Carter to help build or repair more than 100 homes in Dallas and Fort Worth.

For 31 years, the Carters have partnered with Habitat for Humanity and given a week of their time annually to help build homes and raise awareness of the importance of decent housing and its role in breaking the cycle of poverty.

”We are proud to support this program as it represents one of our core values. We manufacture energy-efficient comfort systems that enhance and control indoor comfort. Our Comfort Pros, the local independent dealers who install Daikin systems, also enjoy giving back to our local communities. It’s an honor to provide affordable housing and enhanced indoor comfort to 14 families in the DFW area,” said Gary Clark, SVP of Marketing at Daikin.

In addition to supporting Habitat’s Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project, Daikin has committed to providing $250,000 of support to Habitat builds across North America. This takes the form of direct financial support to Habitat for Humanity, as well as the donation of energy-efficient heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems for Habitat homes.

This year’s Carter Work Project also coincides with Habitat’s observance of World Habitat Day. Held on the first Monday of every October, the U.N.-designated World Habitat Day calls attention to the need for adequate housing for everyone by raising awareness and mobilizing people to take action in response to the need for better shelter around the world.

For three decades, Habitat’s Carter Work Project has engaged volunteers to improve communities across the United States and around the world. In Dallas, Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity will build 30 new homes and repair 20 existing homes in the East Oak Cliff neighborhood, located near the Veterans Affairs Hospital. In Fort Worth, Trinity Habitat will build 15 new homes in the Central Meadowbrook neighborhood, and will paint 50 existing homes in partnership with the City of Fort Worth’s “Cowtown Brush Up Program.”
