Timberlake Management Team Hosts Media Day Event with Donation Ceremony to Commemorate the Grand Opening of Its New Phoenix Builder Service Center on Aug. 29, 2006 at 11:45 a.m.
Timberlake Cabinet Company™, a leading supplier of cabinetry to the new construction market, announced today that the Company’s Phoenix Builder Service Center, which designs and installs kitchens in the Arizona market, will donate its 150,000th kitchen to Habitat for Humanity. The donation will benefit the family of a new two-story house being constructed by Habitat for Humanity International’s homebuilding project and feature cabinetry selected from Timberlake’s Portfolio® collection. Timberlake employees will deliver and install the cabinetry in the house in January. Construction on the house will begin in October 2006.
“We are privileged to be a part of such a beneficial program,” said Mike Leikam, general manager of Timberlake’s Phoenix Builder Service Center. “Habitat for Humanity has been aiding families for decades, and we are pleased to be able to contribute to the first two-story Habitat project in the Phoenix area.”
Cabinetry donations are second nature to Timberlake. The Company routinely gives back to its communities as evidenced by the recent donation of its 750,000th kitchen manufactured in its Kingman, Ariz. manufacturing plant to Housing America Corporation. In addition, Timberlake recently committed to donating two kitchens to Centex Corporation, who is also building several homes on behalf of Habitat for Humanity.
“We participate in as many of these opportunities as possible,” said Leikam. “The donation of our 150,000th kitchen in Phoenix to Habitat for Humanity coincides well with the opening of our new Builder Service Center, and furthers our commitment to serving the Phoenix community and builder market. Timberlake is a long-time member of the Phoenix community and we believe in giving back to those communities in which we live and work.”
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization whose mission is to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world. Founded in 1976, the organization has built more than 200,000 houses around the world, providing more than 1,000,000 people in more than 3,000 communities with safe, decent, affordable shelter.
