INVISTA donates $8K to Habitat for Humanity

ORANGE — INVISTA’s Orange site has donated $8,000 to the Orange Habitat for Humanity to assist with the purchase of STAINMASTER carpet for the current habitat homes that are under construction.

“INVISTA is a strong supporter of Habitat for Humanity as it is aligned with INVISTA’s philosophy of investing in programs that promote a strong work ethic, achievement, and personal responsibility.” said Paul Hughes, INVISTA Orange site manager. “INVISTA is very pleased and proud to partner with Habitat to assist Orange families with achieving the American dream of home ownership.”

INVISTA strives to be a good community partner through its community outreach activities and philanthropic focus areas of human services, education, the enablement of youth, environmental stewardship, emergency services support, and community enrichment. During 2013, INVISTA invested in excess of $200,000 in the Texas communities where it has operations.

“We are excited about the carpet sponsorship by INVISTA,” said Weldon Townshend, president of Orange Habitat for Humanity. “Orange Habitat for Humanity is about transforming families by providing simple, decent shelter for homebuyers. We are about transforming our community as we transform families. INVISTA understands the importance of community, and the vital role they play as an employer and member of our community.”

INVISTA’s Orange site produces nylon intermediate chemicals that are used to manufacture nylon fiber found in such consumer brands as STAINMASTER residential carpet, ANTRON commercial carpet, CORDURA fabrics for military apparel and soft-sided luggage, and bulk nylon fiber for safety airbags.
