Home News Shaw continues work with 'Make it Right' group

Dalton — Shaw Industries recently joined the Make It Right Foundation to cut the ribbon on the Foundation’s latest project, the Bancroft School Apartments in Kansas City’s Manheim Park neighborhood.

Shaw donated flooring including carpet and engineered hardwood among other flooring types, to cover 50 homes and common areas.

The apartment complex achieved LEED Platinum certification. 

Shaw began its relationship with the Foundation, founded by actor Brad Pitt, when it committed to donate flooring for all 150 homes in the Foundation’s New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward rebuilding endeavor after Hurricane Katrina.

 Built in 1904 and abandoned and boarded up for more than 13 years, Bancroft School reopened to provide residents with 50 rental units and community amenities, including an auditorium, gym, computer lab and gardens.
