Cabinets for Humanity Program Celebrates Milestone

August 10, 2012

Volunteers from across the state of North Carolina have joined the Habitat for Humanity of Orange County team to install the 100th PureBond kitchen through the Cabinets for Humanity program.

Cabinets for Humanity is a partnership between Habitat for Humanity of Greater Greensboro and Columbia Forest Products. Starting in 2009, Columbia Forest Products has worked closely with Habitat to develop a line of durable, formaldehyde-free PureBond cabinetry that's a cost-effective and healthier option for homeowners. The company and its employees have donated time, materials and labor to this program, which took on the name "Cabinets for Humanity." Since that time, the program has grown and several affiliates now participate.

“This generous gift by Columbia Forest Products has boosted our green building efforts and gets more volunteers involved at our construction sites,” said Winston McGregor, president and executive director of Habitat Greensboro. “Our partners in Orange County have led the way, and we’re delighted that so many other affiliates see the benefits of purchasing cabinets that are sustainably harvested and manufactured right here in North Carolina, with non-toxic materials like PureBond.”

Brad Thompson, CEO of Columbia Forest Products, was inspired to start the program as a result of his family’s experiences of volunteering with Habitat Greensboro. “We were looking for ways to give back to the community and Habitat was a natural fit,” said Thompson.
