Owens Corning is continuing its support for Habitat for Humanity with a renewed three-year pledge of $1.1 million.

The Owens Corning Foundation has agreed to donate $200,000 per year for the next three years, in addition to gift-in-kind donations of $500,000. These include insulation and roofing products to use in Habitat's construction and revitalization projects.

"One of the most important benefits of community investment is the positive impact it has on our employees and the communities where they live and work," said Don Rettig, president of the Owens Corning Foundation. "Habitat is an ideal partner for Owens Corning. We provide financial support, donate building materials and encourage employee volunteerism. What's more, Habitat has a presence in nearly every Owens Corning location across the U.S. and Canada."

Owens Corning is also planning to contribute and install high-performance, weatherproof insulating systems and its Total Protection Roofing System.

"We are grateful for Owens Corning's commitment to Habitat for Humanity," said Colleen Finn Ridenhour, deputy director of Corporate, Foundation and Institution Relations for Habitat for Humanity International.  "Their support will enable us to help more families have access to safe, decent, affordable homes where they can create a brighter future."

Owens Corning has been supporting Habitat for Humanity since 1997.
