The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) recognized 15 member companies for community service during its All-Star Awards Ceremony held during the Wood Flooring Expo in St. Louis.
While the theme of this year’s Expo was “Play it Forward” and highlighted NWFA’s launch of local, regional and national service-oriented partnerships, many members of NWFA actively are engaged in their own communities, according to an NWFA representative.
To receive an NWFA Community Service Award, the member company has donated wood flooring products, financial assistance, time and/or skills to one or more community projects. Examples of the volunteerism of award recipients, past and present, include restoring flooring in historic buildings, donating materials to provide housing for families in need, providing materials to makeover rooms for chronically ill children and providing materials and skills to rebuild family homes devastated by natural disasters.
This year’s companies honored for their “Play it Forward” efforts during 2014 were:
