The contribution has helped support several Habitat houses across North America as well as U.S. and international programs. In addition, Simpson Strong-Tie employees have contributed hundreds of volunteer hours in building homes and training local Habitat affiliates along with joining the Jimmy and Rosalyn Work Projects in the Gulf Coast and Haiti to repair and build homes affected by natural disasters.
Habitat for Humanity International is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to eliminating poverty housing around the world. Habitat has built, rehabilitated, repaired or improved more than 500,000 houses, sheltering more than 2.5 million people worldwide. For more information, or to donate or volunteer, visit Habitat.org.
As a manufacturer of structural connectors, prefabricated shear wall panels and other fastening systems, Simpson Strong-Tie products are used to attach the roof, walls, floor and foundation together to reinforce the structural frame of a home. Although most homeowners never see these products because they're hidden inside the walls, they actually play an important role in making sure a house stays together, particularly in areas subject to high winds, hurricanes and earthquakes.
"Our employees are very proud to support Habitat and to work alongside people who truly want to build and live in safe, strong, affordable homes. Habitat provides a valuable service to our community and we are honored to be a part of it," said Terry Kingsfather, president of Simpson Strong-Tie.
