C.H. Briggs has helped to make a difference in many local communities through product donations to Habitat for Humanity affiliates since 2012. Last November, the company generously donated more than $86,000 of product, including knobs, sinks, and wood panel products, to various Habitat for Humanity ReStores in the Northeast.
J.B. Miller, manager of the Huntington West Virginia Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore was thankful for the C.H. Briggs donation and called it a terrific success. The wood panel products were “a perfect donation as it brought new customers into our store,” Miller said. He added that the entire wood donation sold within one week.
Headquartered in Reading, Pennsylvania, C.H. Briggs distributes hardware, board and panel products, and premium surfaces, and is one of the largest independently-owned businesses in the Southeast. C.H. Briggs executives say good citizenship is just as important to the company.
“One of the core values of the company is to be good corporate stewards and give back to communities we operate in,” said Don Schalk, Chief Operating Officer, of C.H. Briggs.
Habitat ReStores are home improvement and donations centers that accept donations of surplus and gently used household items and building products. There are more than 832 Habitat ReStores throughout the United States. By recycling and reusing donated products, Habitat ReStores help prevent material from being sent to landfills. Funds raised in Habitat ReStores help Habitat affiliates create affordable housing in their communities.
C.H. Briggs is committed to serving and enriching local communities. C.H. Briggs encourages its employees to get involved in its communities through the United Way and other local organizations.
