Little Giant Ladder Systems Revitalizes Communities
With ToolBank USA
Non-Profits And Community Volunteers Can Now Borrow Little Giant Ladders For Community Service, Clean Up and Disaster Projects
Springville, Utah, June 2011 – Today Little Giant Ladder Systems®, maker of the original articulating ladder, and ToolBank USA, provider of high-quality tools to nonprofit organizations across the country, announced the versatile and safe Little Giant Ladders are now being lent to nonprofit organizations and their volunteers for community improvement projects. A full line of Little Giant Ladder Systems products has been donated so community citizens can easily use these needed tools to make their neighborhoods a better, safer place to live.
“With the generous support and valuable partnership of Little Giant Ladder Systems, the ToolBank is helping remove barriers for volunteers to engage across our communities,” said Patty Russart, Executive Director of the Atlanta Community ToolBank. “Due to the versatility and dependability of Little Giant Ladders, community volunteers, from teenagers to senior citizens, can easily transport and adjust ladder settings to get any job done. Little Giant Ladders have become a staple to help nonprofit organizations complete community service, clean up and disaster-relief projects.”
ToolBank member organizations, such as local Habitat for Humanity chapters, will be using Little Giant Ladders for various community projects such as building homes and parks, repairing soup kitchens and shelters, and cleaning up from recent natural disasters.
Little Giant Ladder’s donation of safe and dependable ladders will help keep volunteers comfortable and secure as they give their time and energy to rebuild and improve the heartland of America. Rather than having to use many different sizes of stepladders to complete a job, volunteers can now use the lightweight Select Step™ ladder, which combines the features of 6 different ladders into one. Working on unlevel ground, often necessary in disaster areas and nearly every worksite, can now be safely done with the wide-stance SumoStance extension ladder that increases side-tip stability by over 500%. Little Giant ladders are engineered to prevent accidents, save lives and will help volunteer workers better accomplish their projects without having to feel nervous while using a ladder.
“ToolBank USA provides a tremendous solution to a growing need among community volunteers—doing more with less,” said H. Arthur Wing, President of Little Giant Ladder Systems. “Revitalizing communities, preventing injuries, and saving lives are central to the heart and mission of the entire Little Giant Ladder Systems family-owned business. Providing Little Giant Ladders to this important organization will help volunteers across the nation do more with less. We are honored to partner with ToolBank USA and applaud their exceptional work.”
