Through its headquarters and other facilities, Simpson Strong-Tie said that it donated $78,000 during the 2020 holiday season to community organizations across the country and internationally.
Several of the company’s locations donated funds normally reserved for holiday celebrations to nonprofits in the communities they serve.
The company’s headquarters in Pleasanton, Calif., donated $15,000 each to the Alameda County Community Food Bank and Eden I&R, which runs the county’s 211 hotline. The company's Riverside, Calif. branch partnered with a charity in Orange County for a $10,000 donation to the Caterina’s Club Feeding the Kids program.
In Stockton, Calif., $10,000 was donated to Children’s Home of Stockton, and the Columbus, Ohio facility donated $20,000 to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.
In total, the company donated $78,000 to 12 organizations throughout the United States and in Vietnam.
“With so many people experiencing the loss of jobs, incomes and other essential resources due to the pandemic over the past year, we wanted to do what we could to help,” said Simpson Strong-Tie CEO Karen Colonias. “We hope these donations contribute to keeping individuals and families afloat and communities intact.”
