Schlage Donates Locks to Habitat for Humanity Project

As part of an ongoing effort to support charitable organizations that promote family well-being, Schlage, a strategic brand of Ingersoll Rand, has joined with Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity, the Rocky Mountain Community Land Trust and Home Depot to provide exterior and interior door locks and a backyard padlock for 24 homes in the Woodman Vistas neighborhood of Colorado Springs.

The construction project is also part of Habitat for Humanity’s initiative with the Home Depot Foundation’s Partners in Sustainable Building.

Each of the 24 homes will be outfitted with a exterior handleset and interior locks in satin nickel finish. The donated locks will be used in 19 Habitat homes and five homes being built by the Rocky Mountain Community Land Trust.

“In September, several Schlage employees volunteered to join Home Depot in helping with the construction,” said Sarah Pepin, vice president of sales for Schlage/Ingersoll Rand Residential Solutions. “We actually were able to meet two families who will be moving into the development. It was so moving and motivational that we decided right there to donate the door locks and padlocks. Schlage’s corporate commitment to creating safe and secure environments is a perfect fit with the goals of this project and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Habitat and to supplying added value to future projects.”

“We are always grateful to companies like Schlage that share our philosophy of providing decent housing to families in desperate need of affordable homes,” said Paul Johnson, executive director at Habitat for Humanity. “We are truly grateful for this donation because it will improve the lives of these Colorado Springs families by giving them peace of mind in knowing that their homes are secure.”

Rocky Mountain Community Land Trust homes are reserved for first-time home buyers with a maximum household income of $56,500 for a family of four and recipients are required to attend a home buying workshop. The Rocky Mountain Community Land Trust was formed in 1996 with the goal of providing affordable homes to families with limited incomes. The Home Depot Foundation supports the construction of homes that are affordable and healthy to live in.
