Building products supplier Simpson Strong-Tie has announced a national sponsorship agreement with Habitat for Humanity.
Over the next four years, the company will donate $1 million in cash and products to help support Habitat for Humanity projects in North America.
Simpson Strong-Tie has, through its local affiliates, supported Habitat for Humanity for more than a decade. The company’s national agreement also includes employee volunteer time to help with building Habitat homes.
“Simpson's mission is to help people build safer and stronger homes economically,” said Tom Fitzmyers, CEO of Simpson Strong-Tie. “By sharing similar goals with Habitat and working together on a national level, we can provide more people homes that are built to last.”
Previously, the company focused on local Habitat for Humanity projects, but according to Terry Kingsfather, president of Simpson Strong-Tie, "With a national sponsorship and an organized effort, Simpson will be able to make an even greater impact across North America.”
