WEST CALDWELL, N.J. (June 1, 2018) – MaxLite will lend its support to help more than 250 families in 31 states build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter during Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz, June 4-8.
During the build week, Habitat partners with professional builders and suppliers who provide the labor, funding and materials in order to address the growing need for decent and affordable housing in communities nationwide. MaxLite is contributing 1,950 LED bulbs to the 2018 building effort. MaxLite products are designed to help homeowners save money on electricity costs and to change their light bulbs less frequently. LED bulbs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, use 80 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and have a lifetime of 25,000-50,000 hours.
“MaxLite is proud to be part of this week of homebuilding, and to support the significant work done by Habitat for Humanity to improve the lives of families in need of affordable housing,” said MaxLite President and CEO Yon Sung. “Knowing that our products will help to light up the homes and lives of the new owners is a wonderful feeling.”
MaxLite has supported Habitat since 2013 by donating bulbs and lighting fixtures to be used in Habitat’s Home Builders Blitz projects and sold through Habitat for Humanity ReStore resale outlets. Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell goods at a fraction of the retail price, which helps fund Habitat construction projects in local communities. MaxLite works with state utility companies and their energy-saving rebate programs to provide additional discounts on lighting products for Habitat ReStores. Currently, MaxLite products are being sold at 220 Habitat ReStore resale outlets across the country.

About Habitat for Humanity
Driven by the vision that everyone needs a decent place to live, Habitat for Humanity began in 1976 as a grassroots effort on a community farm in southern Georgia. The Christian housing organization has since grown to become a leading global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries. Families and individuals in need of a hand up partner with Habitat for Humanity to build or improve a place they can call home. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage. Through financial support, volunteering or adding a voice to support affordable housing, everyone can help families achieve the strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves. Through shelter, we empower. To learn more, visit habitat.org.
