For more than 115 years the American Lung Association has been striving toward our vision of a world free of lung disease. To fully realize this vision, it takes support from individuals, communities, foundations and corporations to propel our mission forward.

The American Lung Association launched our Proud Partner Program to celebrate partners who have taken demonstrable actions in their work to support our mission. Through their partnership, these organizations are supporting the American Lung Association's strategic imperatives where the need is greatest.

This year, we spotlight our Proud Partners whose collaboration is focused on making a difference and improving air quality. Here are a few things our Proud Partners had to say about their partnership:

ProTeam, provider of commercial vacuums, shared that they are “proud to partner with the American Lung Association to make a greater impact in the improvement of indoor air quality for all building occupants and to promote cleaning for health.”

“The American Lung Association has helped us understand how much people care about indoor air quality and it is rewarding to know that our products help improve it,” said Chris Dilillo, Swiffer North America Brand Director “It is a truly natural collaboration because the Lung Association recommends incorporating dusting into your regular cleaning routine, which can reduce the amount of dust and improve overall indoor air quality in your home. And Swiffer makes dusting quick and efficient with products optimized to easily trap lock and remove dust.”

“The research that the American Lung Association supports to better understand lung disease and the treatment of lung disease has such an impact on so many people.,” Vice President of Human Resources at Aprilaire Jennifer Pagels shared. “Aprilaire’s Proud Partner relationship has provided us with the incredibly rewarding opportunity to contribute to this lifesaving mission while continuing to raise awareness on the importance of breathing healthy air. We are proud to stand alongside the American Lung Association in the fight for clean air and healthy lungs for all.”

Filtrete™, supplier of HVAC Air Filters and air purifiers, follows the motto: the cleaner the air, the healthier our homes.

Cindy Timmerman, 3M Global Business Director for 3M and Filtrete™ Air Quality Solutions shared, “We appreciate all that the American Lung Association is involved in to bring an increased level of awareness and importance of improved air quality, while supporting communities in most need of it. Due to heightened concerns about air quality, the use of home air purifiers and High Efficiency HVAC Air filters are on the rise. Air purifiers and high efficiency HVAC filters play a key role in ridding indoor environments of unwanted airborne particles, such as dust, allergens, bacteria and viruses.”
