Division 9 Flooring Puts Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission On Receiving End

Woodinville, WA (March 23, 2015) –

Division 9 Flooring, a specialty flooring contractor, recently donated 575 square feet of carpeting, to Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission. The donation put the Mission on the receiving end of giving. The Mission houses close to 300 in the Men’s Shelter and serves over 1500 meals a day to residents and those who are homeless and hungry on the streets of Seattle.

The Donation from Division 9 Flooring benefitted the Mission’s original building in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. The Mission opened it’s doors in 1932. The building is part of the Pioneer Square Historic District in Seattle, which protects the unique historic and architectural character of certain buildings.

John Peterson, Donor Relations, for Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission says their options for updating the building are confined. “We are severely limited in our ability to make changes to the appearance of the building. Thanks for Division 9 for making a difference in the lives of so many people who are in need.” According to Peterson the Mission was able to use the carpet donation in three different rooms. The new carpeting inspired the Mission to paint walls and gave renewed hope.

Men’s Ministry Assistance Director Scott Cleveland says “Sadly, the building has deteriorated over the years so the needs are great. We painted and carpeted the case manager’s office because we wanted to serve the men in the spirit of excellence. The space now projects the message of hope that we extend to our men.”

Melissa Rossi, CFO, for Division 9 Flooring says “Supporting our community is a core value of our corporate stewardship program. It’s our privilege and pleasure to donate to the Union Gospel Mission. We believe in the work they do and feel fortunate to be in a position to help.”
