For the last 10 years, ASSA ABLOY has donated locksets with a total value of $11 million to all Habitat for Humanity homes built in the United States and has further supported the annual Jimmy Carter Work Project in various North American locations. Many ASSA ABLOY Group companies have supported local Habitat for Humanity chapters with build support as well as in-kind services.
The ASSA ABLOY Group and Yale Locks & Hardware joined Habitat’s affordable housing work in 2001 with a commitment of $5 million in interior and exterior locksets and complimentary technical advice to Habitat affiliates regarding use and installation. Yale renewed this commitment in 2006, exceeding its second $5 million pledge by nearly $1 million. The company also supports Habitat house construction through employee volunteerism on build sites near Group locations that include Mason City, IA; New Haven, CT; Charlotte, NC; Roanoke, VA; and New York City.
