Marazzi donates tile to Double H Ranch

Home News Marazzi donates tile to Double H Ranch

Dallas—What do you get when 12,000 square feet of free tile, 100 willing (and quite capable) volunteers donating 1,500 hours of free installation and products come together with a strong leadership team? The answer: Great big smiles on the faces of seriously ill children—a.k.a., a wondrously rewarding experience. American Marazzi Tile recently donated the porcelain tile to this “Hole in the Wall, A Serious Fun Camp” for use in the main building’s welcome center, game room and three dining rooms plus the conference and theater areas.

The Double H Ranch in Lake Luzerne, N.Y., co-founded by 
Charles Wood and Paul Newman, provides specialized
programs and year-round support for children and their families
 dealing with life-threatening illnesses. All programs are free of
 charge and capture the magic of the Adirondacks.

Max Yureda,
Double H CEO/executive director, is amazed at the donation of time and materials by so many to re-image the facility. “The ‘before’ and ‘after’ scope of this project adds to the truly life-changing experience these kids have at Double H Ranch.”

The massive cooperative effort included manufacturers, professional tile installers and volunteers across a broad industry spectrum that was initiated and headed by Schluter-Systems’ territory manager, lower Northeast, Rich Citro, while onsite installation coordination was directed by third-generation installers, Anthony Mion & Sons.

Matt Bartkowski, regional sales manager, New England, Marazzi USA, managed the large-scale donation
of porcelain tile. “The days I spent working at Double H were such an amazing experience for me. Personally, it felt great working side by side with all these industry professionals helping to improve this facility that does so many great things for critically ill children. Professionally, it makes me really proud to represent a company like Marazzi that is so willing to step up and do good things for the community.”

The renovation immediately greets alumni and families arriving at Double H Ranch. New tile flooring in the main traffic areas dramatically changes the first impression of the facility and makes life there more accessible for children as well as providing a healthy, easily cleaned environment.
