1 / Basic needs & self-sufficiency
The Foundation is committed to helping people move out of poverty, working closely with community organizations like United Way, Habitat for Humanity, food pantries and homeless shelters to help those in need.
Building community is at the heart of what we do. In 2017, we donated a parcel of land in Appleton, Wisconsin to Habitat for Humanity. In order to bring the block back to a standard suitable for residential development and revitalize the area around it, Oshkosh Corporation demolished the unoccupied Pierce facility. Afterwards, more than 20 members of the Oshkosh Airport Products team volunteered over the next several months to help construct the first Habitat for Humanity home on the parcel.
