DIYers can now shop high-quality hardware and home improvement brands while giving back, being green and saving money

True Value, a leading global wholesaler with a legacy retail brand, is proud to deepen its relationship with Habitat for Humanity through product donations to ReStores across the country.  

Starting with participating Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the Chicago, Atlanta and Denver areas, community-minded DIYers will have another sustainable, affordable option for core hardware and home improvement products. Since the fall of 2023, True Value has donated products valued at more than half a million dollars to Habitat ReStores. 

“Habitat for Humanity’s mission aligns perfectly with the True Value promise of being ‘Here For You’ through community support and great products,” True Value CEO Chris Kempa said. “We make it possible for every DIYer to bring their vision to life and be the champion of their domain, and Habitat offers the same opportunity through their programs. This partnership is an extension of what makes your local True Value awesome. We’re simply offering another way to complete home projects that is good for the environment, communities and consumers while connecting customers to their local True Value.”  

True Value has partnered with Habitat for Humanity for years, through cash and product donations for Habitat for Humanity homes, to employee involvement on Habitat build sites, and to sponsoring the 2023 Carter Work Project as the paint and paint accessories provider. With this partnership expansion, True Value is connecting the ReStore shopper directly with products, deals and additional resources. Each participating Habitat ReStore will highlight donated True Value products through shelf tags, in-store signage and social media, along with future co-branded promotions. 

 “At Habitat for Humanity, we are committed to building strong communities, which include constructing and repairing affordable homes for families,” said Sarah Brachle Wagner, CEO of Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity. “Habitat ReStores provide unique resources for DIY enthusiasts, local projects and home improvements.  We are thrilled to partner with True Value through our shared commitment to sustainable community building.”
