CLEVELAND – July 2024 – Sonnhalter, a communications firm marketing to the professional tradesman in construction, industrial and MRO markets, will be hosting its Annual Tool Drive once again. This year marks its fifteenth year in partnering with Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity for this event. Since 2010, Sonnhalter has raised more than $517,000 worth of donations for this cause. 

The Tool Drive runs Thursday, August 1 to Saturday, August 31. All businesses, organizations and manufacturers are encouraged to donate extra inventory, demo models, tools, building materials and monetary donations to the Sonnhalter Tool Drive. Donations benefit Cleveland Habitat’s mission of building homes and empowering families through safe and affordable home ownership.

“Over the past fifteen years, we’ve surpassed all expectations set back in 2010. I take great pride in our collective achievements driven by our commitment to supporting Habitat for Humanity,” said Matt Sonnhalter, vision architect at Sonnhalter. “Due to the immense generosity of clients and friends of the agency, we have been able to donate more than $517,000 to this great cause. Even though last year’s donation totals were unprecedented, we aim to raise even more this year!”

The Sonnhalter Tool Drive encourages those within the trade industry to look through their warehouses for extra inventory and overstocked tools or items that they would be willing to donate.  

Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity has helped more than 300 Habitat homeowners, including over 1,000 children, have a safe and decent place to live. The donated items will be used for Habitat for Humanity projects or will be sold at one of the organization’s three ReStores, discount home improvement stores that serve Cuyahoga and Lorain Counties. Proceeds from ReStore sales are used to help Habitat build and rehabilitate homes for those in need.
