Philadelphia, PA – On October 17, 2019, volunteers from Chubb made an impact with Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia for the insurance industry’s annual Week of Giving. This eight-day, industry-wide initiative supports community non-profits in their missions on a worldwide scale. During this week, Chubb volunteers worked alongside Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia staff at Oxford Green, Habitat’s 20 home development in Sharswood, North Central Philadelphia.
Financial and volunteer support from Chubb allows Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia to serve families that are in need of safe, affordable housing options. Habitat provides homeowners with an affordable mortgage that they can pay off in 30 years without accumulating interest and with 350 hours of sweat equity in lieu of a down payment.
“Chubb shares in Habitat’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live,” said Corinne O’Connell, Chief Executive Officer at Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia. “They are both a global and strong local partner. Chubb’s Annual Week of Giving is just a sliver of the year-round support they contribute to build strength, stability and self-reliance with Habitat Philadelphia.”
Chubb has been a financial supporter since 2008, a continuous sponsor of Habitat’s annual Building Hope Luncheon since its inception in 2010, and an organization that volunteers more than 250 hours a year to Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia.
“Chubb is happy to work alongside Habitat for Humanity in Philadelphia to help make a difference in a community we share,” said Robert Poliseno, Mid-Atlantic Regional Executive Officer, Chubb. “Chubb has a rich history of fostering philanthropic engagement where our employees live and work, and we are proud to invest in the well-being of our community by participating in projects that support Habitat’s mission.”
