Division 9 Flooring and Turner Construction work together to give back to our community.
We recently teamed up with Turner Construction for their Paint The Town Blue Program. It’s Turner Construction’s way of giving back to our community. The program benefits many different agencies in our area including Fare Start, Ronald McDonald House, First Tee, Immanuel Community Services, White Center Food Bank, Ballard Food Bank and Rebuilding Together. Rebuilding Together provides low income homeowners with critical home repairs and upgrades.
The Montlake Rebuilding Together project home belongs to a woman named Louise who has lived there for 50 years. She was unable to manage upkeep on her home and the stairs were in rough shape.
Over time, the carpet on the stairs to the entry of the home had become worn out, slippery and moss ridden. The carpet on the stairs inside the home was literally torn to shreds on most steps. Louise tried to hide the old carpet with throw rugs on some of the stairs. Unfortunately, this made it eve more hazardous.
“A HUGE thank you is owed to the whole crew at Division 9. The donation of time and material was so generous and was received with enormous gratitude from the home owner! She kept saying she just LOVED her new carpet. In fact, she told us that she really enjoys sitting on her front steps to enjoy the sunshine and she did just that on Friday afternoon – while petting the new carpet and exclaiming how beautiful it was!”
Turner Construction MEP Engineer Jonelle Tuffs
Tuff says “We literally could not have taken on this house and made it safe and beautiful for the homeowner without the help of Division 9 – thank you for continuing to be the hardworking, dedicated, problem solving, and neighbor helping team that we so greatly enjoy working with!”
Every year, Turner Construction donates their time and talents to the community with their Paint The Town Blue Program. This year, over 110 volunteers took part. It’s a day of service to give back to the community in which we live and work. Division 9 Flooring is honored to be a part of this program and salutes Turner Construction for their commitment to the community.
