Consumers Energy Offering $100,000 to Support Home Run for Habitat Campaign in Michigan
Contribution Continues Tradition of Helping to Build Homes, Communities



Aug 12, 2014

Consumers Energy is contributing $100,000 to support this year's Home Run for Habitat fundraising campaign in Michigan, providing assistance and encouraging others to help build Michigan's communities.

"Habitat for Humanity looks to build homes, communities and hope, and we want to support them as part of our Promise to care for the communities we serve," said Garrick Rochow, Consumers Energy's vice president of customer operations and quality. "We're proud to contribute to Habitat's mission to build affordable and energy-efficient homes across Michigan."

Consumers Energy has provided $300,000 in dollar-for-dollar matching contributions in the last three years to the campaign, which coincides with the Detroit Tigers' regular season. Contributions support Habitat's statewide "ReBuild Michigan" capital campaign, which funds work in 70 counties.

Consumers Energy, its employees, retirees and foundation have supported Habitat for Humanity in various ways. They have provided more than $280,000 in contributions and in-kind support to Habitat throughout Michigan in the last decade. Consumers Energy also has provided more than $450,000 in energy efficiency upgrades to Habitat offices since 2012.

In October, Consumers Energy's Helping Neighbors program will team up with Habitat to make energy-efficiency upgrades to homes in Saginaw, Midland and Bay County.

"We work toward the goal that every man, woman and child has a safe, decent and affordable home. Our collaboration with Consumers Energy helps ensure those homes also are energy-efficient, saving money that partner families can put toward other needs," said Sandy Pearson, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Michigan.

Consumers Energy, Michigan's largest utility, is the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy (NYSE: CMS), providing natural gas and electricity to 6.5 million of the state's 10 million residents in all 68 Lower Peninsula counties.
