Madison, Wis.—Floor360, a leading provider of design-driven flooring, announced the completion of the interior makeovers of Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center in Madison and Walker’s Point Youth & Family Center in Milwaukee through its sponsorship of Design for a Difference movement. The makeovers were made possible by over 300 donors and volunteers from Madison and Milwaukee, and we completed Oct. 12 in Madison and Oct. 13 in Milwaukee.

The makeover process began April 2019, when Floor360 announced that Wil-Mar Neighborhood Center in Madison would receive a free interior makeover of their facility. In June, Floor360 Milwaukee, in partnership with Milwaukee Magazine, announced that Walker’s Point Youth and Family Center would receive a charity makeover.
