Simpson Strong-Tie Renews Partnership with Habitat for Humanity to Help Build More Disaster-Resilient Homes
Monday, January 15th, 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.
