Sparks, Maryland-based Apex Tool Group is donating $220,000 in tools to help rebuild communities affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Gearwrench, Crescent, Wiss and Lufkin tools will be donated, along with the use of a 350,000 sq. ft. warehouse for two months, the company said.
The warehouse will be used by disaster relief nonprofit Trusted World as a sorting and staging headquarters for Harvey donations from around the country.
“Our associates as well as our businesses are committed to building today’s communities, building tomorrow’s skills, and rebuilding in times of need,” said Jim Roberts, CEO, Apex Tool Group. “While our own facilities were not impacted by the devastation of Hurricanes Harvey or Irma, putting our tools and resources in the hands of local nonprofits will help accelerate clean up and restoration efforts.
