The Jeff Fettig Global Habitat Build Project

Having successfully collaborated with Habitat for Humanity International® for nearly 18 years, we had a unique opportunity to honor Jeff Fettig, who stepped down as CEO in 2017. We created a global build project with Habitat which included 14 locations from India and China to Brazil and Colombia.

Habitat for Humanity and Whirlpool Corporation employees continued the tradition of helping families achieve their dream of owning a home. Two hundred seventeen employees, including executives, lent a helping hand. For Jeff Fettig, this became the ultimate recognition of his years of service and commitment to making a difference in our communities.
