Yale Locks & Hardware to Continue Aiding Habitat for Humanity
This is Yale’s fourth consecutive five-year pledge of donating $5 million worth of interior and exterior locks and keys for Habitat homes.
“At Yale, we understand that a home provides many things, but the most important is peace of mind. That’s why we’re proud of our 15-year partnership with Habitat for Humanity and pleased to support their work in helping millions of people create safe and secure places to live,” Jason Williams, general manager, Yale Residential, said in a statement.
“We’re thrilled to renew our commitment and in the process help those in need of affordable housing.”
In addition to donated locksets, employee volunteers from Yale and other ASSA ABLOY Group brands, which Yale falls under, have helped build houses with Habitat homeowners in Connecticut, Iowa, New York, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Mexico.
“We are grateful for Yale’s continued commitment to Habitat for Humanity and our mission,” Larry Gluth, senior vice president, U.S. and Canada, Habitat for Humanity International, stated. “Because of this support, we are able help more families build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.”
Since it began its donations, Yale has provided more than 700,000 locks, valued at more than $16 million, to Habitat for Humanity homes.
Yale became a national partner of Habitat for Humanity in 2001.
