INDIANAPOLIS, October 13, 2023 – Allison Transmission is pleased to announce the completion of a community service initiative, in partnership with the Fuller Center for Housing, to help a central Indiana family realize its dream of home ownership.
Over the last three weeks, 168 Allison employees from across the organization exemplified the company’s commitment to giving back to our communities by volunteering more than 1,500 hours to build a home for Holly Stultz and her sons, Shaun and Sirius. Holly has long aspired to provide her children with a safe place that is not just a house, but a home, that they can grow and thrive in for years to come.
Allison and the Fuller Center welcomed Holly and her children to their home in a dedication ceremony this afternoon. At the conclusion of the event, the Fuller Center for Housing presented Holly with the keys to her family’s new home.
“Allison is a proud supporter of the Fuller Center’s mission to provide adequate shelter for people in need around the world,” said Matt Carter, Executive Director, Operations, Allison Transmission. “We continuously strive to make a difference in our community, and we’re honored to play a role in building a new home for Holly and her sons.”
The building of this house was also made possible through generous support and donations from D. R. Horton, United Auto Workers, Timberland Lumber Company, Chapel Rock Christian Church, and Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership.
Since their partnership was established in 2010, Allison employee volunteers have assisted in the construction of five houses in Indianapolis under the guidance of the Fuller Center.
“The United Nations estimates that more than 1 billion people around the world live in substandard housing. That number includes thousands right here in our community,” said Fuller Board Member and retired Rolls Royce Program Director John Schroeder. “We are working to change that in an unrelenting quest provide adequate housing for families in need.”
In addition to the contributions Allison provided to the home build, the company has also pledged a $25,000 donation to the Fuller Center for Housing.
