Meridian, Idaho-based Scentsy, a seller of personal and home fragrances, has partnered with Habitat for Humanity to raise money for the organization that builds homes for families in need.
Scentsy created a scented-wax warmer called Built With Love, which was released in September. The company will donate $9 from the sale of each one to Habitat for Humanity through September 2018.
On Dec. 8, a team of top Scentsy executives spent the morning working on a Habitat for Humanity home that is under construction in Garden City. There were 12 people from Scentsy working on the home, including the company’s owners and founders, Heidi and Orville Thompson. The home is going to a family originally from Eritrea, Africa, that recently became U.S. citizens.
Habitat for Humanity works alongside families to build homes—and the stability that comes with them—from the ground up. More than 9.8 million people around the world have been served by Habitat for Humanity since 1976. Approximately 1.8 million people volunteer annually to help Habitat for Humanity assist families in need, and 70 countries benefit from Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build simple, affordable housing.
