In Orange County, CA volunteers donate their time to help with the construction of new homes through Habitat for Humanity.This morning, a Habitat for Humanity truck came to the 3 Day Blinds warehouse to take away the donation of a truckload of drapes, shutters, shades and blinds that will be used in homes that they are building, or sold in their stores to raise money for their local and worldwide efforts to provide housing for low income families.

“We are excited to donate window treatments to Habitat for Humanity, a cause all of us at 3 Day Blinds support,” said Dave Hall, CEO, after helping to load the boxes of blinds on the truck.  “We know that this great organization will find the best way to use our products to benefit their clients and build on their success.”

Most of the products that 3 Day Blinds donated were used in photo shoots or in the extensive product testing and prototyping process that is a part of our product development cycle. “I know that Habitat for Humanity will be delighted when they open these boxes.  What they will find are exclusive, one-of-a-kind window treatments that are the same quality and have the same features that our professional designers specify for their clients,” said Karin Jeske, SVP Merchandising and Product Development.  “I am happy to know that we will be bringing creativity, fashion and style to the clients of Habitat for Humanity.”

In the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, Habitat for Humanity volunteers work alongside local residents to provide housing.We asked Noe Rivas, Manager, Material Acquisitions from Habitat for Humanity of Orange County about their efforts in our local community:  “We are proud to say that we have completed construction on 171 homes in Orange County, CA so far, that now house 968 residents.  Our newest project is in Santa Ana, a community where there are many in need of our services.  The progress we make is always accelerated by the volunteers who generously donate their time, and great organizations like 3 Day Blinds who donate high quality products.  We are so appreciative!”

As the truck drove away, we all felt grateful that our window coverings would be used to benefit families in need.  We asked Frank Gutierrez, SVP of Manufacturing and Supply Chain about the size and value of the donation.  “Today we loaded 400 blinds on the Habitat for Humanity truck.  The retail value of each of these blinds averages $220, so the total value of the donation is $88,000.”
