Comforts of Home

Providing everyday essentials in times of need

P&G endeavors to provide everyday essentials that create the experience of home for families around the world who lack safe, affordable housing; for children who are orphaned; and for those displaced by natural disaster. We leverage the strength of partner organizations to deliver programs which help address both short-term and long-term housing-related issues including those associated with sanitation and water. Our employees team up as volunteers to build, clean and repair homes in virtually every geographical region where P&G conducts business. They also come together to assemble kits of personal hygiene and/or home care products which are readied for delivery in immediate response to disaster impacted areas.

The following programs represent some of these efforts.

Disaster Relief

P&G’s commitment to support victims after widespread disasters is a natural expression of our Purpose to improve lives. When a disaster strikes, our response is anchored in product donations. Our brands meet many of the most basic needs people have when they’ve been displaced and have lost access to everyday essentials.

P&G has partnered with Habitat for Humanity in their efforts to provide decent, safe and affordable places to live for families in need by sponsoring home builds around the world. Thousands of our employees come together to help build and clean homes for first-time owners committed to provide a home for their families.

Downy Touch of Comfort

Downy has partnered with Quilts for Kids to help create and deliver homemade quilts to comfort hospitalized children who may be spending their first night away from home in a hospital where they are typically restricted from bringing their favorite stuffed animal or other non-machine washable items from home.
