Simpson Strong-Tie Gives Back To Communities

Simpson Strong-Tie hosted its sixth annual ‘Do What You Can Day’ on November 3, to give back to communities.

The company’s signature activity for the day was building water filters at eight of its facilities to provide families across the globe with clean water for 10 years. A total of 746 water filters were built, equating to 1,119 volunteer hours and $32,000 value of volunteer time. The activity also offset 214 pounds of carbon. Other company offices engaged in projects to help their local communities, including collecting 878 pounds of food, packing 126 food boxes, providing 20 underserved children with winter clothes, and building four picnic tables and five doghouses.
