Stanley Black & Decker Canada Takes Part In Habitat for Humanity

Employees participated in the Toronto GTA Adopt-a-Day event on August 8th

Mississauga, On. (2018) – SBD Canada employees are continuing to donate their time and talents to work on Habitat for Humanity builds, including the Habitat for Humanity Toronto GTA Adopt-a-Day Challenge event held Wednesday, August 8th at the McLaughlin Road Build Project in Brampton.

In Edmonton, SBD employees were busy working on the Carter Place build. Last July, SBD worked on the Carter Work Project every day for week long with 800 volunteers – including former President and First Lady, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter. The Carter Place build site is in mid stride right now. Of the 58 homes – nine are complete with families moved in – the next phase of 11 should be complete early this summer and another 11 before the end of 2018.  

SBD employees will also take part in the Montreal build on August 14 and the Calgary Habitat for Humanity build on August 15.

The Habitat GTA Adopt-a-Day Challenge is an ideal opportunity for Stanley Black & Decker employees to share their skills and time with individuals working toward the goal of homeownership. After the day on the site, the DEWALT and STANLEY tools used in the build are donated to Habitat. DEWALT workboots will also be donated in Edmonton.

Joe Di Ilio, President of Stanley Black & Decker Canada, says, “Stanley Black and Decker Canada employees are always proud to take part in any Habitat project. Our company has a long tradition of supporting the Habitat effort in many different ways, including volunteer builds and tool support. It is a very important relationship for us and we are committed to continuing to work with this wonderful organization in communities across the country.”

Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area’s Adopt-a-Day Program is an employee engagement experience with a 29-year-history of helping companies build stronger teams and giving employees a unique way to give back to their community. Habitat GTA serves the areas of Brampton Caledon, Toronto, and York Region.
