Home Remodeling Company's Staff Pitch In To Spruce Up Not-for-Profit’s New Kansas City Headquarters
(PRWEB) June 3, 2005 -- Ty Pennington and the “Extreme Home Makeover” crew
aren’t the only ones who’ve been busy putting their construction skills to work
for a good local cause. This past Saturday, a group of 20 employees from Kansas
City, Mo.-based Schloegel Design Remodel, together with their families,
descended on the new Kansas City headquarters of the American Stroke Foundation
to help the not-for-profit agency prepare the new facility for its mid-July
The 3,000 square-foot facility, located at 5900 Swope Parkway, will offer a complete range of services for stroke survivors, their caregivers, and members of the health care and research community. In preparation for opening, the Schloegel team donated more than 200 man-hours to the remodeling project. Schloegel obtained donated sinks, faucets and paint, relaminated kitchen cabinets, moved partitions and painted the entire space.
“We’re so grateful to the entire Schloegel Design Remodel team — and their families — for taking the time and energy to make our new Missouri headquarters a warm and inviting space for our stroke survivors and their caregivers,” said Rita Griffith, executive director, American Stroke Foundation. “We are very blessed to have corporate partners like Schloegel supporting our efforts.”
According to Schloegel Design Remodel, Inc. Founder and President Jake Schloegel, community projects such as this week’s work for the American Stroke Foundation are an important element in his company’s business philosophy. “We are always on the lookout for ways to give back to the community,” he said. “When we learned about the opportunity to pitch in for the American Stroke Foundation, our team didn’t hesitate.”
