Dealer/Distributor Looking to Become Involved in Habitat

Habitat Dealer and Distributor partners are an important part of the community effort to provide decent, affordable housing to local families. In 2007, partners helped source building and construction materials for over three thousand Habitat for Humanity homes around the globe. 

Donation of Dow products such as STYROFOAM™ Brand Insulation and WEATHERMATE™ housewraps, gives new homeowners the opportunity to reduce their natural gas consumption for heating and provide overall reduction in electricity consumption. Homeowners can enjoy a more comfortable living space and enjoy lower utility bills month after month, and year after year.

Dow simplified the process of product donation to Habitat Affiliates so that we can work together more efficiently to provide affordable housing to families in need.

How it works:

Local Habitat Affiliates should request Dow product for their upcoming builds from their local lumberyards and STYROFOAM™ dealers. A Habitat Affiliate may contact you in the event of product needed for donation. You will receive a CN # from Dow Chemical with the approved product details that need to be sourced to your local Habitat Affiliate. As a lumber dealer or distributor you may supply the Habitat Affiliate with the needed products from your inventory and then make a request for Dow to restock that inventory with the CN number faxed to you from Dow. Please note that donation is taken as free product and not as credit on invoices.
