Culture of Responsibility

Whirlpool Corporation is proud to be a part of the communities in which we do business.

At the very core of our Culture of Responsibility is the recognition that our company and volunteer efforts should be in constant pursuit, even if in a small way, to help improve the lives of others so they may fully pursue their own dreams and passions.

Children with health coverage are better prepared to learn in school and succeed in life.

Students are able to learn better when they’re well nourished. Eating healthy meals has been linked to higher grades, better memory and alertness, and faster information processing.

A healthy approach to the value of food can carry a child throughout their life; sustaining them, their community and the planet.

Homeowners reap the financial gains of any appreciation in the value of their home, so they tend to spend more time and money maintaining their residences.
