NWFA would like to recognize the following organizations for their community service:
DriTac donated time, materials and resources to Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers (TROSA) for the installation of the flooring, including hardwood applications, at a residential facility that supports recovering substance abusers. TROSA is an innovative, multi-year residential program that enables substance abusers to be productive, recovering individuals by providing comprehensive treatment, work-based vocational training, education, and continuing care.
Faith Hardwood Flooring
Faith Hardwood Flooring provided time and services to Troutman Church of God in Troutman, NC, which provides more than 300 families each week with meals through its Community Food Bank.
Just Around the Corner
Just Around the Corner donated labor and materials to Oasis International Ministries in St. Louis, MO. Many of the rooms throughout the facility required repair to existing floors or completely new floors. Just Around the Corner removed some of the existing floor, installed new flooring, and repaired some of the existing flooring. Oasis International Ministries provides support to refugees from war-torn countries by providing basic household items, English classes, and additional educational support to help them find a solid start in a new country.
MAPEI works with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) project, AEC Cares, each year to give back to the community in which AIA holds its' annual convention. In 2016, MAPEI contributed materials and labor to the renovation of the Philadelphia Athletic Recreation Center, which provides after-school programs for hundreds of area youth.
Olde Tyme Craftsmen
Olde Tyme Craftsmen provided services to a number of projects during 2016. Ron and Monica Charpentier worked with the Winnipesaukee Playhouse on a project that included the rehabilitations of the entry lobby and meeting room. Additionally, they restored wood flooring in an old school building in Concord, NH, for Girls, Inc. of New Hampshire, which strives to help girls and young women realize their potential. The Charpentiers also routinely contribute resources to the maintenance and refinishing of the Stark Park Gazebo in Manchester, NH.
