To support The Fuller Center for Housing’s mission to eradicate poverty, Stihl is supplying battery-powered mowers and accessories valued at $72,000 to allow the new homeowners a means to maintain their properties without the cost of fuel.
“All the houses we build or restore have something in common — a yard, and yards require maintenance,” said David Snell, president of The Fuller Center for Housing. “This gift from Stihl will be of tremendous help to these families as they strive to maintain their new homes.”
The Fuller Center for Housing is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that seeks to eradicate poverty housing by partnering with local community leaders and organizations to build and refurbish homes.
Snell pointed out that one new, well-kept home goes a long way towards improving entire neighborhoods, so the benefit of Stihl’s gift will go well beyond the new homeowner.
“We are truly grateful to Stihl for this most generous contribution to making the world a better place for us all,” Snell said.
Stihl Inc. has previously supported the organization through donation of battery products in 2016.
"The Fuller Center is a vital resource for those in need," said Roger Phelps, corporate communications manager for Stihl Inc. "We want to help The Fuller Center's mission by empowering these families with the products they need to easily maintain their new properties. Stihl battery-powered mowers will allow them to do this with at a low operating cost, and with virtually zero ongoing maintenance required.”
