In continued support of Habitat for Humanity, Whirlpool will be going on the road with Reba McEntire encouraging audiences to "Join Us" and get involved with Habitat for Humanity. Whirlpool currently donates a refrigerator and range to every Habitat for Humanity home built in North America as part of its $25 million commitment to the organization's More than Houses campaign. Consumers who are unable to attend one of Reba's shows in person can visit www.whirlpool.com to learn about all of the exciting and fun ways to "Join Us" in supporting Habitat for Humanity in their local communities.

"We are honored to have the voice of Reba McEntire on our team to help raise awareness for Habitat for Humanity," said David Swift, Executive Vice President of Whirlpool North America. "Over the next several months we look forward to the relationship between Whirlpool and Habitat rising to its highest level ever and encouraging people all over the world to join us in supporting this great cause."
