This partnership is in it’s third year and is part of an ongoing effort where corporate partnerships allow Habitat for Humanity to build additional homes.  The partnership called “Home Builder Blitz” uses the volunteer efforts and donations from participating corporations who partner with local professional builders.

“Panasonic is excited to continue our partnership with Habitat for Humanity, helping create affordable housing for those that need it most,” said Dan Silver, President, Panasonic Eco Solutions North America. “This year alone, Panasonic has donated over 900 energy-efficient ventilation solutions, 280 of which will be used by 51 Habitat affiliates during the Builders Blitz to provide healthy indoor air to families across the country.”
