True Value Spring Reunion 2024: A Commitment to Community and Sustainability

True Value, a global leader in hardlines hardware, recently hosted its annual Spring Reunion at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. This event brings together retailers, vendors, and associates for three days of networking, product discovery, and business growth opportunities.

Giving Back Through Charity
As part of their tradition, True Value event organizers select a charity to benefit from the generosity of over 500 exhibitors. This year, the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore was chosen to receive donated materials. The impact was substantial: exhibitors and vendors contributed twenty-five truckloads of building and hardware supplies, totaling an estimated $75,000 in sales at ReStore. But that’s not all—an additional $40,000 worth of materials went directly to Habitat for Humanity construction teams currently working on homes for partner families.

Supporting Sustainable Practices
The donation made by True Value and its partners had an impressive ripple effect. By diverting approximately 200,000 pounds of materials away from landfills, they demonstrated a commitment to sustainability. These efforts align with True Value’s mission to create opportunities that benefit both communities and the environment.

A Collaborative Effort
Behind this impactful donation lies a story of collaboration. GES, the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, and New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity worked tirelessly to coordinate this endeavor. Their partnership exemplifies the power of collective action in creating positive change.

True Value’s Spring Reunion isn’t just about business—it’s about making a difference. By supporting local communities, promoting sustainable practices, and fostering partnerships, True Value continues to be a beacon of goodwill in the hardware industry.

GES serves as the general services provider for True Value's Spring Reunion and is proud to support sustainable initiatives at show site.
