Hurricane Irma

When national and global disasters occur, the people at Whirlpool are among of the first to respond and extend their support. Whirlpool Foundation matches the disaster relief contributions made by Whirlpool directors, employees and retirees across the U.S., dollar-for-dollar.

Whirlpool Corporation has partnered with the American Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity International on disaster relief and response initiatives. We recognize both immediate relief needs and long-term rebuilding efforts required to see a community build back what has been lost due to a natural disaster.

The American Red Cross will use funds toward immediate needs such as food, water, temporary shelter, medical services and emotional support. Habitat for Humanity International will use funds toward helping low-income families with shelter kits, clean-up efforts, transitional shelters and, eventually, permanent homes.

Your gift to the American Red Cross and/or to Habitat for Humanity International will provide critical support during a time of need. Thank you for your generosity!

EMPLOYEE TESTIMONIALS

Candy Garman Whirlpool Foundation
I am always overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of our leaders and employees.  When a disaster strikes they are ready to help, hands-on or through a donation. Matching donations through the Whirlpool Foundation strengthens the impact that our giving makes that much more.
Yolanda Renner Whirlpool Corporation
Dealing with tragedies like this is always so overwhelming and it means so much to know that others want to respond and give in such a generous way. Knowing that I work for a company with this level of compassion is very comforting, especially now. My sincere thanks.
Rebecca Rooker Whirlpool Corporation
It’s wonderful for Whirlpool to work with the American Red Cross to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey as they did with the Gatlinburg fire in TN this past November. Whirlpool is truly a company Invested in America and invested in the well being of their customers and employees.

WHIRLPOOL… CARING AT A GLOBAL LEVEL

We partnered with the Red Cross® to help address the migrant crisis in Europe and natural disaster relief after earthquakes in Italy. “White Goods for Red Cross” provided necessary equipment for Red Cross® reception centers in Rome, Milan and Ventimiglia and one home appliance to each of the 33 other reception centers across Italy. Nearly 5,000 beneficiaries were assisted in the three major centers by the end of the year. As part of the earthquake relief efforts, 93 percent of employees in Italy generously contributed financial support to help the Red Cross® build a mobile laundry unit for use by affected communities.
