Simpson Strong-Tie renews partnership with Habitat for Humanity to help build more disaster-resilient homes
ATLANTA (Jan. 11, 2018) – Simpson Strong-Tie is renewing its partnership with Habitat for Humanity to continue supporting the housing organization’s efforts to make homes resilient to disasters.
This is the 12th consecutive year of the partnership to help more families in need of a decent and affordable place to call home. To date, the manufacturer of structural product solutions has contributed more than $2.75 million toward Habitat’s mission.
The company will donate structural connector framing hardware and prefabricated shear walls for new construction and will continue to support Habitat Strong, a program that backs building disaster-resilient homes in weather-sensitive areas.
“We are excited to be partnering with Simpson Strong-Tie for the 12th year,” said Lynda Smith, senior director of Corporate Relations for Habitat for Humanity International. “Their support is incredibly valuable as we work to support communities affected by recent disasters.”
“Our long-standing partnership with Habitat for Humanity allows us the opportunity to provide not only monetary and product support, but also technical, engineering and volunteering resources that support the organization’s work. We are also very proud to be the primary sponsor of the Habitat Strong program and look forward to continued collaboration with Habitat this year and beyond,” noted Simpson Strong-Tie CEO Karen Colonias.
About Habitat for Humanity
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in more than 1,300 communities throughout the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.
