Helping the Community in Times of Urgent Need

  • From emergency shelters, medical facilities and temporary schools to membranes used for roof repair, our people have brought Sprung technology and expertise to areas around the world affected by crisis and devastation.
  • Sprung has been actively supplying homeless navigation centers which have become the vital bridge between life on the streets and an affordable housing unit.
  • Sprung has been donating structures to disaster recovery applications since 1980.
  • We work closely with partners such as AmeriCares, MSF (Doctors Without Borders), Homes of Hope and Samaritan’s Purse.
  • We have also been an important source of supply for the Salvation Army and the Red Cross in their disaster recovery efforts.

Sprung’s commitment to corporate social responsibility through the years

Homelessness – Toronto, Ontario

Over the last 5 years, Sprung Instant Structures has been working with cities across North America, building Navigation Centers, Bridge Structures and Respite Centers. Homelessness has become a critical issue for many communities. In our continuing efforts to give back, we have decided to make homelessness our priority. Last month we approached the Toronto Respite center and asked what they could use to help their guests. They were in need of some shade over their patio area. The amazing team from our Toronto office ordered eight patio umbrellas and took some time to deliver them and set them up at the respite center. Now guests at the center can gather and enjoy fresh air and sunshine with a little shade.

Youth with a Mission – YWAM / Homes of Hope

Homes of Hope build hundreds of homes every year for the disadvantaged in Mexico. With the rapid expansion of YWAM and Homes of Hope there has been a demand for additional training and classroom space. Sprung contributed another 50′ wide x 110′ long structure. Sprung is also sending more membrane which volunteers will install onto homes of impoverished families to repair their leaky roofs.

Samaritans Purse, Barbuda

October 31, 2018

Good evening,

I wanted to thank you for your generosity in donating the Sprung Structure to Samaritans Purse for their relief effort in Barbuda. The structure is invaluable for safely storing materials and equipment for Barbuda.
My wife Leigh and I and our 2 daughters Savannah and Rebeccah have just returned from serving with Samaritans Purse in Barbuda for 2 weeks. We installed roofs on homes that have been without roofs for over 1 year after Hurricane Irma.
We witnessed first hand the impact that this relief effort had on the families that we served. Our daughter Savannah and her team installed a roof for a family of 5. They have lived in a home with a leaky tarp for covering for over a year. The father lost his 2 year old son in the hurricane, the only fatality of the hurricane. The 5 were sleeping in one bed in an undivided, single room home. Not only did they get a brand new roof but the team also installed walls to divide up the home and give them some privacy and dignity.
My wife and I and our team installed a roof for a 74 year old woman, her daughter and granddaughters who all lived in leaky tents in their backyard for over 1 year until we showed up. Within 4 days they had a brand new roof!
I have attached photos of the Sprung and the 74 year old’s home before and after photos and a photo of the family being congratulated once the home was repaired.
Once again thank you for your generosity. Your donation allowed these people to regain their dignity and gave them hope for the future.
