OLIVIA'S GIFT - GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

Completed Project by Columbos Floors To Go
Olivia’s Gift, is a local non-profit with two homes for adults with severe disabilities in the Greater Grand Rapids area. Earlier in 2017, we toured their facility to gain insight on handicap accessible design implementations for a home makeover project we had taken on. We were able to see the incredible service this facility provides and the gift of independence each resident receives. We were touched by the goodwill of this organization and the dedicated team of caretakers.

A few months later the staff at Olivia’s Gift reached out to us for advice and potential assistance on two flooring projects. The first project was to refinish the existing hardwood in house #1. We were able to provide them with a recommendation on a hardwood refinishing contractor, whom we had worked with in the past. The second project was professional installation of vinyl plank in an entryway and hallway on house #2. The previous laminate flooring material in their entryway had been damaged by water and heavy traffic. They decided on replacing the laminate with a water-resistant vinyl plank that could withstand the moisture and heavy traffic.
Our crew of professional employee installers jumped at the opportunity to donate their talents to the cause. We sent a team of four to install all 600 square feet of vinyl plank in a single day! “I felt so proud to be part of the team that completed this job for a great cause!” as said by employee installer, Brad Wheaton. DJ Ehlert was excited about the opportunity to help out the cause, “I enjoy my work on a daily basis, but participating in this project was a true highlight. I hope to be included on future projects for other charitable causes.” This project gave our team members the opportunity to give back and bond with one another. “It is always a pleasure to give time to a great cause, and it was made even better doing it along side my teammates” added team member Brandon Farina. We are happy to report that their brand-new floors are complete and ready to hold up for many years to come!
