$5M pledge Renewed for Habitat for Humanity
Yale Locks & Hardware, an ASSA ABLOY Group company, is pleased to renew its pledge to support Habitat for Humanity in its effort to eliminate poverty housing.
The five-year commitment, which will run through 2015, includes $5 million of donated interior and exterior locks and keys for homes built with Habitat for Humanity homeowner partners and volunteers.
To date, Yale has provided more than 500,000 locks, valued at more than $11 million, to Habitat for Humanity affiliates primarily in the U.S. and additionally in Mexico and throughout the Asia Pacific region. Yale first partnered with Habitat for Humanity from 2001 to 2005, donating locksets and installation and maintenance advice with a value of $5 million. In its second gifts-in-kind commitment, from 2006 to 2010, Yale exceeded the term’s $5-million pledge by nearly $1 million in product donations. BD+C
