Do it Best Provides $1 million in Goods to Habitat for Humanity
Do it Best continues its history of support for Habitat for Humanity, coordinating the record donation of nearly $1 million in home improvement products to the West Orange Habitat for Humanity in Orlando, Fla.
“Our semi-annual markets are huge events that draw thousands of vendors and Do it Best members as they explore new products to sell in their stores,” said Rich Lynch, vice president of marketing. “And when it’s done, we encourage our vendors to donate their product displays through our partnership with Habitat. With our first-ever spring market in Orlando, we reached out to the West Orange Habitat branch to continue the tradition.”
In all, more than $986,000 worth of products were given to Habitat. The eight semi-trailers of merchandise included household goods, hand and power tools, plumbing and electrical, lighting, patio furniture and much more. The donation will fund the building of several complete houses in West Orange County.
“I cannot say it enough how much we appreciate your support for our community,” said David Burgard, Habitat for Humanity manager. “We consider it an honor and pleasure to have worked with Do it Best at their spring market this year.”
