NWFA members partner for 2012 service project

Home News NWFA members partner for 2012 service project

St. Louis, Mo. Spearheaded by John Lessick, board vice chairman of the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), NWFA members have come together for a unique community service project. In an effort to bridge the gap of those in need, NWFA is partnering with the non-profit organization EdgeAlliance to help respond to the needs of homeless veterans.

EdgeAlliance is a leader in supporting individuals and families by providing affordable housing and progressive services to homeless veterans and also to children, women and men who have been impacted by HIV/AIDS.

This year, EdgeAlliance is renovating a four-unit Chicago greystone building, which will house eight bedrooms in a total of three apartments (approximately 1,000 square feet per apartment). The Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs (IDVA) and Chicago-based non-profit, Designs for Dignity (D4D), have contributed grant money and architectural/design services. Additionally, NWFA members – Apex Wood Floors, WD Flooring, Shaw Industries Group and Somerset Wood Products – collectively donated labor and 3,000 square feet of wood flooring to be laid in the Alpha House in Chicago’s North Lawndale community.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is slated to take place this fall in honor of the project’s completion and all those who contributed and supported this comprehensive effort.
