Sonnhalter to give tools to Habitat for Humanity

BEREA, OHIO — Sonnhalter, a communications firm marketing to the professional tradesman in the construction, industrial and MRO markets, is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to kick off the first annual Sonnhalter Tool Drive, which runs through the month of August.

Organizations, businesses and residents are encouraged to donate new and gently used tools, as well as cabinets, sinks, building materials and appliances, to Sonnhalter to help benefit Habitat for Humanity’s cause of eliminating poverty housing and homelessness.

Affiliates of Habitat for Humanity individually work with participants to sponsor fundraising activities such as tool drives. The Sonnhalter Tool Drive is striving to engage the community, businesses and organizations to look through workbenches, warehouses, storage lockers, basements, garages and tool kits, and donate refurbished, duplicate or overstocked tools or items that are no longer used.

“We have already seen great success with the Sonnhalter Tool Drive,” said Matt Sonnhalter, vision architect at Sonnhalter. “Many clients and local retailers have already donated tools and resources to the event, one client from Australia even took the time to send tools.”

Sonnhalter is partnering with the Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity during its Tool Drive. The Cleveland Habitat has completed over 160 homes since 1988 and today, engages 2,000 volunteers, who provide over 70,000 hours of service per year to Cleveland’s most distressed neighborhoods.

The donated items will be used for Habitat for Humanity projects or will be sold at the organization’s ReStore, a recycled building materials store. Proceeds from the ReStore sales will be used to help Habitat build and rehabilitate homes for those in need.

Additional information on how to participate is available from Anastasia Duller at Sonnhalter, 440/234-1812 Ext. 130, or e-mail her at: aduller@sonnhalter.com. Click here for additional information.
