June 17, 2016 – Members of the Stanley Black & Decker Canada crew put on their hardhats for a good cause earlier this week, taking part in the Habitat for Humanity GTA (Greater Toronto Region) Adopt-a-Day Program.

The Habitat GTA Adopt-a-Day Program lets Stanley Black & Decker employees share their time and skills to assist individuals working toward the goal of homeownership. The group worked on the build at Torbram Road in Brampton and, after the day on-site, the Dewalt and Stanley tools used were donated to Habitat GTA.

In addition to the Torbram Road project, Stanley Black & Decker employees took part in Habitat for Humanity builds in Calgary (June 14, 2016), and will take part in upcoming builds in Edmonton (June 22, 2016) and Montreal (July 12, 2016).

“Our involvement with Habitat enables our employees to use their construction skills in a positive way to give back to their communities and experience the sense of pride and accomplishment that comes with it,” said Joe Di Ilio, president of Stanley Black & Decker Canada

The Adopt-a-Day Program is an employee engagement experience with a 29-year-history.

Habitat GTA serves the areas of Brampton, Caledon, Toronto, and York Region in Ontario.
