Valspar extends relationship with Habitat for Humanity

The Valspar Corporation Foundation has extended its long-standing relationship with Habitat for Humanity International with a multi-year commitment totaling more than $20 million in cash and paint donations. The Valspar Foundation will provide paint to Habitat affiliates across the U.S. and financial support to build Habitat’s A Brush With Kindness program, an effort that assists families in need, into a nationwide program.

“Even in these difficult economic times, Valspar and its employees are deeply committed in their support of Habitat and its mission of providing simple, decent, affordable housing with families facing difficult circumstances,” said William L. Mansfield, Valspar chairman and CEO.

The Valspar Foundation and Habitat for Humanity International launched their national partnership in 2002. With this extended commitment, The Valspar Foundation’s paint and cash partnership with Habitat for Humanity International will reach nearly $40 million by 2012.
