True Value Sponsors Habitat for Humanity Carter Work Project

True Value Co. participated in and sponsored Habitat for Humanity’s Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project. This year’s Carter Work Project was a signature build event of Habitat for Humanity International and took place Oct. 1-6 in Charlotte, North Carolina. True Value leaders were among the hundreds of volunteers working alongside country music superstars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood to build a community of 39 new homes.

In addition to the company’s presence in Charlotte, True Value was a Dream Maker sponsor with a donation of EasyCare® paint, paint supplies, hand tools, yard equipment and cleaning supplies.

“It was a real honor to represent True Value and work with all of the amazing volunteers at this year’s Carter Work Project event,” says John Vanderpool, divisional president, True Value Manufacturing & General Paint. “I’m so proud of our EasyCare® paint donation and for the opportunity to put it to great use helping to build new homes in the west Charlotte community.”

 “True Value is committed to the communities where we live and work, and we’re proud of our active participation and ongoing involvement with Habitat for Humanity,” says Chris Kempa, CEO of True Value Co. “Our commitment goes beyond business, and our donation aligns perfectly with the Carter Work Project’s efforts to make a substantial impact on affordable housing and creating safe, stable environments for families to thrive.”
