Giving Back: It's The Right Thing To Do
Home Improvement: Two words we take to heart. After Maykke learned what leading national nonprofit Rebuilding Together has been doing for the last 30 years – repairing damaged or neglected homes at no cost to qualified recipients – supporting their cause was a no-brainer. Through our partnership with our local Bay Area affiliate Rebuilding Together Peninsula (RTP), we found a way to bring something to the table by donating bath and kitchen furnishings, as well as employee volunteer time to complement Rebuilding Together’s mission of community revitalization.
We scrambled to create this partnership for a reason: Shelter insecurity is rampant. Millions of our neighbors are directly threatened by unhealthy living conditions in their homes, and RTP is determined to get that number down to zero – one house at a time. Since 1989 RTP has provided renovation and repair services for the Bay Area’s most vulnerable homeowners – seniors, veterans, persons with disabilities, families with children, and community facilities. Today, RTP serves approximately 250 homeowners each year with the help of over 3,000 volunteers. That's real impact.
It's simple: To help vulnerable homeowners get their living spaces where they need to be, Maykke is pledging at least 50 products from our line of sinks, faucets, lighting and other amenities to RTP. And to celebrate the launch of [Re]Build, Rebuilding Together’s national grassroots movement kicking off in April, we're supporting the cause by volunteering our time to projects in our community.
We’re giving back and partnering with Rebuilding Together Peninsula because it’s the right thing to do, and we hope you join us in standing behind this worthy cause by volunteering with your local affiliate or making a donation.
