BLACK+DECKER™ has joined Habitat for Humanity’s first nationwide cause campaign, Home is the Key (#HomeIsTheKey), in raising awareness throughout April of the critical need for improved access to decent shelter. Funds raised during the campaign will allow Habitat to partner with more families and unlock better, stable futures. BLACK+DECKER understands the significance of calling a place home and is proud to support this important initiative.
“We are thrilled to be part of a movement that will help open more doors to affordable homeownership,” said Allison Nicolaidis, Chief Marketing Officer for Global Tools & Storage at Stanley Black & Decker. “Studies have shown that a stable home plays a key role in positively influencing a family’s education, health and financial opportunities. We feel that the BLACK+DECKER mission of turning the place you live into a home goes hand-in-hand with this campaign.”
