SoftLite is proud to be a 2023 Home Build Community Partner with the Habitat for Humanity of Portage County. In the spring, we donated custom windows for a new build for the organization And, we partnered with JB Hunt in August to donate and deliver more than $100,000 worth of windows to Habitat.
Over the years, we have partnered with our dealers to donate windows to their local Habitat for Humanity branches, such as the Morris Habitat for Humanity in New Jersey. Students at Roxbury High School built a 3-bedroom modular home for a family, and we helped our local dealer, New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., donate the windows for this incredible project.

We also support Habitat for Humanity through donations and sponsorships.
