Allied Building Products Corp., along with their partners at DeWalt and Orgill, announced that its Burlington, N.J., location has donated more than $3,500 in tools and building supplies to the Salem County Chapter of Habitat for Humanity. After learning of numerous tools being stolen from a Pittsgrove construction site on July 31, Allied Branch Manager Darren Pisano decided to take action.
“As soon as we heard about their tools being stolen, we knew we wanted to help,” said Pisano, “Habitat for Humanity does so much good for the community and we wanted to do our part to help out this worthy organization.”
DeWalt donated ten tools including a reciprocating saw, circular saw, cordless drill and hammerdrill kit. Orgill Distribution donated a credit of $1,000 that can be used on any purchase of building supplies from Allied Building Products Burlington branch.
“It is so nice to know how many people care about our mission,” said Sue Ann Leighty, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Salem County. “The tools will be put to good use on the next build. Extra tools will be used to outfit our Handyman program, which performs repairs and builds ramps for seniors and less able.”
