Organizations, businesses and residents are encouraged to donate new and gently used tools, as well as cabinets, sinks, building materials and appliances, to the Sonnhalter Tool Drive until Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013, to benefit Habitat for Humanity’s cause of eliminating substandard housing.

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, duplicated or overstocked tools or items that are no longer being used.

“We had such a great response to last year’s Tool Drive and collected more than $33,000 worth of tools, building materials, appliances and other items, bringing the total to $75,000 donated since our efforts began in 2010,” said Matt Sonnhalter, vision architect at Sonnhalter. “This year, we’re looking forward to the same enthusiastic response. We encourage everyone to clean out their toolboxes and work areas and donate anything that is collecting dust.”

Sonnhalter partners with the Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity for its annual Tool Drive. The Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity has completed more than 160 homes since 1988 and today, engages 2,000 volunteers, who provide more than 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 ReStore sales are used to help Habitat build and rehabilitate homes for those in need.

 

For donations

Tools and materials can be shipped to Attn: Tool Drive, Sonnhalter, 633 West Bagley Road, Suite 4, Berea, Ohio 44017.
