Educating and encouraging consumers to make the switch to energy-efficient lighting is at the heart of what MaxLite does and we are proud to further that mission while servicing the community through our partnership with Habitat for Humanity.
In 2022, MaxLite celebrates its 10-year partnership with Habitat and over the course of its partnership, MaxLite has donated $13 million in energy-efficient lighting products and funding to help Habitat homeowners lower their home energy costs and make housing more affordable. The donated LED bulbs and other LED lighting fixtures will be sold through Habitat for Humanity ReStores. Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that are independently owned and operated by local Habitat organizations that sell products at a fraction of the retail price. Sales of donated items help fund Habitat construction projects in local communities. Donated MaxLite products are sold in more than 150 ReStores across the country.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating this 10-year partnership milestone with MaxLite,” said Julie Laird Davis, vice president of corporate and cause marketing partnerships at Habitat for Humanity International. “Energy-efficiency and sustainability are important priorities to Habitat, and MaxLite lighting products have been essential to helping homeowners across the country achieve both in their own homes. We are grateful for MaxLite’s continued support for our mission.”
- In 2022, MaxLite is contributing $300,000 in energy-efficient lighting products as part of a $900,000 three-year commitment to Habitat, as well as donating $150,000 towards events and employee engagement opportunities.
- To celebrate the 2014 opening of its new facility in Anaheim, MaxLite donated $14,000 in products to the Orange County ReStore. Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell goods to the general public at a fraction of the retail price to help local Habitat affiliates fund the construction of homes within their communities.
- In 2013, MaxLite partnered with New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program (NJCEP) to provide discounted ENERGY STAR-qualified CFL lamps and fixtures to Habitat ReStore resale outlet customers in New Jersey.
