MaxLite donates energy-efficient lighting products to local Habitat for Humanity ReStore
Anaheim, Calif. – In celebration of the grand opening of its new facility in Anaheim, MaxLite has donated $14,000 worth of energy-efficient lighting products to the Habitat for Humanity of Orange County Anaheim ReStore.
MaxLite, a leading manufacturer of LED lighting solutions, has donated more than $300,000 in products to Habitat for Humanity since 2013. As part of this partnership, MaxLite provides energy-efficient lamps and lighting fixtures for Habitat ReStore resale outlets nationwide. Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell goods to the general public at a fraction of the retail price to help local Habitat affiliates fund the construction of homes within their communities. The Anaheim ReStore, along with a Santa Ana location, helps fund the building of more safe, decent and affordable homes for qualified low-income families in Orange County.
“MaxLite is proud to support our local Habitat for Humanity and encourage consumers to embrace quality, energy-efficient lighting,” said President and CEO Yon Sung. “Our utility solutions team does a tremendous job of working with utilities and their rebate programs to provide lamps and lighting fixtures for sale through Habitat for Humanity ReStores that help save customers energy and maintenance costs.”
“We are really excited about this donation of great products from MaxLite in Anaheim,” said Robyn Willis, director of retail operations, Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. “It is only through donations like this that we can keep our two Habitat ReStores stocked with great merchandise for families looking for bargain prices on home improvement items. This donation fits perfectly into our recycle, reuse philosophy. Proceeds from the sale of these attractive products will help us fulfill our mission of building more affordable Habitat for Humanity homes in Orange County.”
MaxLite also participated in Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz this year by donating $180,000 in ENERGY STAR-qualified products for 300 homes that were built in June.
