LAYING IT FORWARD IN 2015!
In 2015 LL Flooring supported 64 organizations through donations including over 37,000 square feet in flooring & products and over $15,000 in cash as part of its mission to Lay It Forward. From housing for those in need to educational groups, animal rescues and beyond, the company is proud to support communities near its Virginia headquarters and across the country.
Here are some of the organizations who were part of the Lay It Forward program in 2015. Thanks to all for a chance to help!
Adopt a House was founded in Lindenhurst, NY to help re-build local communities affected by Super Storm Sandy. The organization has worked toward its mission with workshops, programs & events with the goal of connecting families who were affected by the storm.
The USO Hampton Roads & Central VA works to enhance the quality of life for countless active duty military members and their families with offerings that might not be affordable or available otherwise. The USO operates centers all over, and this location was founded in 1984. It creates a place where members of the military and their families can go for support and recreation. The USO of Hampton Roads & Central VA serves around 450,000 military members each year.
The Children’s House was created by the Bradford County Child Sex Abuse Task Force. The Task Force’s goal is to provide a safe and child friendly place to be interviewed by youth services and law enforcement personnel. The ultimate goal is for abused children to receive all necessary services in one location built specifically to meet their needs. The Children’s House received over 1000 square feet of flooring to complete their renovation project. Check it out!
Helping a Hero is a non-profit organization which provides support for military personnel severely injured in the war on terror. This group provides specially adapted homes for qualifying service members through partnerships with builders, developers, communities & the veteran.
LL Flooring extended its long-term partnership with No Barriers USA as a sponsor of the organization’s 2015 Summit. The four-day July event brought people together through activities designed to intellectually, emotionally and physically challenge attendees with various disabilities. LL Flooring has been a major sponsor of the No Barriers Summit since the inaugural event in 2007. The Company’s roots with No Barriers USA reach to 2001, when LL Founder Tom Sullivan was inspired by Erik Weihenmayer – the first blind climber to scale Mount Everest. Weihenmayer co-founded No Barriers USA in 2005 to inspire disabled individuals to live fuller lives.
