St. Louis, Mo.—The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has partnered with the Gary Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E. program, which builds smart homes for veterans. Gary Sinise will speak at NWFA’s Wood Flooring Expo in April to officially launch the partnership.

“Gary’s participation during Expo this year coincides with the event’s ‘Play it Forward’ theme,” said Michael Martin, NWFA president and CEO. “While we will mark the NWFA’s 30th anniversary during Expo, we also are looking forward as an association and an industry, in business and in how we contribute to society. This collaboration is a significant step, as an organization with 3,000 member companies, to pay forward our knowledge, skills and resources.”
