Barrie Food Bank – Just Flooring Direct and Bliss Yoga

March 2nd, 2013

To end off 2012, the companies of Just Flooring Direct and Bliss Yoga Studios partnered to make a donation of turkeys to the Barrie Food Bank. When contacted by Steve Miller of JFD, Ann Green owner of Bliss Yoga was instantly on board to help make the contribution of 52 turkeys available to Peter Sundborg, Executive Director of the BFB.

We are glad to help with this initiative, says Ann Green, and together with Steve Miller we will committed to a purchase of 100 turkeys in 2013. I would like to Thank you Ann for, without hesitation, participating in this local donation. Being part of the community and giving back is a very important aspect of local business owner, says Steve Miller.

Peter Sundboug agrees… support from local companies amounts to a substantial part of the day-to-day requirements of the Barrie Food Bank. Donations are always welcomed and the support from the community helps us in turn provide a key service to those that might need it.  A special Thank you also, to Food Basics (Essa St.) for making the turkeys available and to the Barrie Advance for the acknowledgment in the local paper.

Wishing everyone all the best in 2013, JFD and its employees.

Huronia Habitat For Humanity

January 23rd, 2013

Just over a month ago, Just Flooring Direct had the pleasure of working along side a great group of volunteers on the latest Huronia HH build. We were offered to be involved in the supply and installation of the laminate floor for both units of the Semi that was build in Angus, Ontario. This was a great opportunity and, although the weather was unpleasant, a really fun day.

We were joined by the staff and owners of the Globe Restaurant located in Rosemount, ON (http://www.thehillsofheadwaters.com). The volunteer time was the start of the companies Christmas Party. In my opinion, getting involved with a community charity event to kick of one’s Christmas party is an amazing way to get involved. From there they went to dinner and a surprise event that evening. We would like to thank all those involved and it turned out to be a quick, fun and amazing way for both companies to be involved in such a great organization.

I would like to say a special thank you to my 2 employees, Ben Terry and Mark Scott, that also volunteered their expertise during that day. Having them there to help guide the employees from the globe restaurant, promote proper installation and make a bit of a competition out of our projects, made for a pretty fun, fast day. All-in-all it was, and Habitat is, a great organization to be involved with.

A special that you should be made to my family from Twelve Oaks Flooring Products. They generously supplied much of the materials required for the two homes. I thank them for their support at my request and their quick willingness to be involved. Thank you Twelve Oaks for your support.
