Division 9 Flooring Donates to Habitat for Humanity
Division 9 Flooring and Habitat for Humanity of Snohomish County formed a partnership last year. Division 9 Flooring has long had an interest in repurposing, recycling (D-9 was honored with the 2015 Re-Innovator Award for waste prevention and recycling) and giving to those in need. Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit Christian housing ministry seeking to eliminate poverty and homelessness. It makes sense that both organizations would come together to help those in need.

Division 9 Flooring and Maltby Food Bank are neighbors. We both reside in Maltby, part of the city of Woodinville. Division 9 Flooring respects the Maltby Food Bank and the work it does, so the neighborly thing to do would be to donate to Maltby Food Bank. Division 9 has a long history of giving with Maltby Food Bank. The degree of giving changed significantly last year when Michelle Robbins came to work for Division 9. She stepped it up by volunteering at Maltby Food Bank once a week for the past year. She was recently asked to join the board.
Robbins was at The Maltby Food Bank auction that took place in September. Krisitine Willson from Maltby Food Bank says she saw something interesting happen at this year’s auction. Something that’s never happened before. During the fund-a-need paddle raise, someone raised their paddle and announced that the last person to donate $100 would get the $100 bill they were holding up. It caught on and increased to $400. The fund-a-need portion of the auction raised over $21,000. Enough to enable Maltby Food Bank to continue to provide produce for the needy year-round, and to provide dairy to those in need weekly. According to Maltby Food Bank Director, Natalie Oswald, by the end of the night they had raised $55,000. Enough to continue to feed over 100 families or as many as 600 people per week. Oswald says the food bank does more than feed families. They started handing out coats last week. Closer to the holidays the food bank will throw a holiday party for the families with crafts to keep the kids busy while parents pick out gifts for their children.
Some of the volunteers at the Maltby Food Bank have been volunteering there for over 20 years.
Division 9 Flooring believes in giving back. Especially when it’s close to home. If you’d like to give to Maltby Food Bank, you can do so by clicking here – www.MaltbyFoodBank.org
The Maltby Food Bank and Division 9 Flooring have history. It started with a neighborhood location and turned into a partnership of giving. Division 9 Flooring has been supportive of the Maltby Food Bank since moving to their Maltby location. But the level of involvement increased with the addition of Michelle Robbins at D9. Robbins was hired as a project accountant in May of 2014. Continue reading…

Not just to unique and new opportunities, but also to building the trust and confidence our clients are looking for. Continue reading…
D9 under time crunch to deliver on Micro Encoder project. When D9 was awarded the Micro Encoder remodel project, time was of the essence. The remodel would affect Micro Encoder’s business operations, so we wanted to cause as little disruption as possible, but deliver a top notch job at the same time. We were able to accomplish that and are very pleased with the finished product.
We partnered with Skanska Construction on the project. “I have worked with Division 9 on numerous jobs.
