MaxLite will lend its support to help more than 250 families in 31 states build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter during Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz, June 4-8.
During the build week, Habitat partners with professional builders and suppliers who provide the labor, funding and materials in order to address the growing need for decent and affordable housing in communities nationwide.
MaxLite is contributing 1,950 LED bulbs to the 2018 building effort, products that are designed to help homeowners save money on electricity costs and to change their light bulbs less frequently.
LED bulbs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, use 80 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and have a lifetime of 25,000-50,000 hours.
“MaxLite is proud to be part of this week of homebuilding, and to support the significant work done by Habitat for Humanity to improve the lives of families in need of affordable housing,” said MaxLite President and CEO Yon Sung. “Knowing that our products will help to light up the homes and lives of the new owners is a wonderful feeling.”
MaxLite has supported Habitat since 2013 by donating bulbs and lighting fixtures to be used in Habitat’s Home Builders Blitz projects and sold through Habitat for Humanity ReStore resale outlets.
Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell goods at a fraction of the retail price, which helps fund Habitat construction projects in local communities.
MaxLite works with state utility companies and their energy-saving rebate programs to provide additional discounts on lighting products for Habitat ReStores.
Currently, MaxLite products are being sold at 220 Habitat ReStore resale outlets across the country.
