Habitat for Humanity


Habitat for Humanity Day of Giving Announcement

The generosity of EFC’s members was felt during this year’s Day of Giving campaign. On October 4th, World Habitat Day, the EFC Day of Giving initiative, launched for member companies to help raise $100,000 in October of much-needed cash to help cover the costs associated with building homes for those in need. Thank you to all members who supported this impactful initiative.

On behalf of Habitat for Humanity Canada and Habitat homeowners thank you to the following EFC members for your generous support.

EFC has partnered with Habitat Canada as its Charity of Choice

Like Habitat Canada, EFC strongly believes that everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. Habitat Canada knows affordable homeownership empowers Canadian families with a sense of pride and independence. A number of EFC members are strong supporters of Habitat Canada. Many member companies not only contribute financially but also provide product and volunteer support to Habitat affiliates across Canada. View the 2020 Habitat Impact Report here.

There’s never been a better time to support this important cause. You can lend your support in three ways: Financial, Product Contribution for Home Builds or Product Contribution for ReStore.

1. Product Donations

Donate gift-in-kind products that will go directly into our Habitat homes. Electrical products are in high demand and are a large expense for local Habitats. Electrical products such as load centres, circuit breakers, and wiring are a large expense for local Habitats. Download and complete this pledge form and return it to EFC (c/o Sandra Pedro) to spedro@electrofed.com  Find out what types of electrical products are most in need – view the Product List

2. Cash Donations

Your team can have their own Habitat Build Day or you can pool funds with other EFC members in your area and participate together. See below for more details on EFC’s Team Building Opportunity with Habitat.

3. ReStore Donations

Discontinued product or product not required for building a home can go to ReStores. All proceeds go back to the local Habitat and help build more homes.

A note about product donations: Habitat’s Restores are always in need of quality products and will accept donations of overstocked or discontinued items. Individual and corporate donations to the 100+ ReStore locations across Canada help divert more than 36,000 tons of material from landfills and fund Habitat for Humanity housing projects in local communities!

EFC Team Building Opportunity with Habitat

Just like future Habitat homeowners do prior to purchasing their Habitat home, your team members will come together on a Habitat build site, roll up their sleeves and work together to help build a safe, decent, and affordable place that a family in need will one day call home.

The total cash fee for the build day is $10K, for up to 20 people and multiple companies can pool funds and send staff based on their contribution. For example:

1x Company $10,000 – 20 employees

2x Companies $5,000 – 10 employees

4x Companies $2,500 – 5 employees
