We like the idea of giving our customers a high-quality filter at a better price than 3M Filtrete, plus we like the PHILANTHRO mission.

Silverton Hardware of Silverton, OH has become the first retailer to feature PHILANTHRO brand furnace filters in-store, generating impressive sales within the first few days of the product’s availability. PHILANTHRO furnace filters deliver high quality air filtration at a competitive price, with 10% of all sales donated to charity in support of sustainable orphan care worldwide.

The PHILANTHRO filter brand was developed to provide consumers with a high-quality filter solution for homes and businesses, while generating financial support for global organizations dedicated to serving children in need. For each PHILANTHRO filter sold, ten percent of sales are sent directly to non-profit organizations serving orphans and vulnerable children across the globe.

Silverton Hardware owner Don Meinzen introduced PHILANTHRO furnace filters to his customers because of the quality offered, paired with the company’s mission. “We like the idea of giving our customers a high-quality filter at a better price than 3M Filtrete, plus we like the PHILANTHRO mission,” Meizen states.

Silverton Hardware was founded over a century ago, by Don’s great grandfather in 1915. Within days of carrying PHILANTHRO filters, Don is ready to reorder select sizes due to strong sales and customer interest.

“The PHILANTHRO brand was created to transform the lives of orphans around the world. We are excited to have the support of Silverton Hardware and the store’s loyal customers as we pursue our mission to aid orphan care organizations across the globe,” says Will Housh, founder of PHILANTHRO.
