Habitat for Humanity International Partners With HSS RentX, Earns Discount On Tool, Equipment Rentals Nationwide
AMERICUS, Ga., Nov. 15, 2002 -- Habitat for Humanity International today announced that it will partner with HSS RentX, one of the nation’s largest tool and equipment rental chains, to provide substantial discounts on an unlimited number of tool, equipment and event rentals to Habitat for Humanity affiliates throughout North America.
"It is critical that Habitat for Humanity receives the support of individuals and businesses to keep the dream of homeownership alive for families in need of adequate housing," said Millard Fuller, founder and president of Habitat for Humanity International. "HSS RentX’s partnership demonstrates their tremendous commitment to provide safe and affordable homes to families within their community. Such a gift is an example of Habitat’s model of neighbors helping neighbors."
HSS RentX branches offer more than 3,000 different models of tools, equipment and event items for rent, many designed specifically for construction, building, maintenance and remodeling. The company will use its extensive computerized database system to guarantee the discount on all Habitat for Humanity rentals at nearly 90 U.S. locations.
"By designating Habitat for Humanity as the single flagship charity for HSS RentX, we can do far more good than if we fragment our charitable efforts," said Carlo Cavecchi, chief executive officer of HSS RentX. "It is important to HSS RentX as a company that we help our communities as directly as possible."
Cavecchi noted that the partnership solidifies what has been a "longstanding, informal helping hand extended to Habitat for Humanity’s homebuilding projects by our local branches."
Denver-based HSS RentX is part of the worldwide HSS rental network serving the needs of contractors, builders, facility managers, groundskeepers, homeowners and event planners with quality tools, equipment and special event items for rent. The company has been the recipient of numerous international awards for its industry leadership in areas such as training, safety and product innovation. www.hssrentx.com  1-888-887-3689.
