P&G Donates $900K & Goods To Habitat for Humanity

June 2, 2014

CANADA: Procter & Gamble has linked up with Habitat for Humanity Canada in a three-year partnership that includes a significant contribution of $900,000 and in-kind donations from brands like Tide, Mr. Clean and Swiffer.

As part of the new partnership, P&G will provide major investment and assistance in Women Build projects in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal taking place this fall. Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build projects promote the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat homes, with the majority of the planning and execution undertaken by female volunteers. Influential blogger ambassadors from across Canada will also be engaged to support and raise awareness of these Women Build projects within their local community.

In addition to the Women Build projects, P&G employees and stakeholders will volunteer on Habitat build sites in their markets, enabling them to have an impact in the communities they live and work in. P&G will also offer cleaning kits to Habitat for Humanity affiliates.

Habitat for Humanity Canada estimates that its affiliates will build some 300 new homes for partner families in 2014.
