JACKSON, Tenn. — Stanley Black & Decker has donated $25,000 to support The Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

The Foundation made the announcement in a news release Wednesday.

“Our community’s strength comes from our ability to support one another,” said The Foundation’s Vice President of Operations, Beth Koffman. “Without corporate partners such as Stanley Black & Decker, we could not assist the community in the way we do.
