05 Jun Armstrong Flooring Lays The Groundwork for Recovery
LIVES IMPACTED: 3
Although Hurricane Harvey impacted southeast Texas on August 25th, the community of Katy, TX didn’t feel its effects until three days after the storm made landfall. Faced with overflowing damaged infrastructure, Harris County officials opened the Addicks and Barker reservoirs. This act left many homes in the Houston suburb with 3-4 feet of water. The home of Dennis Mitchell was no exception. Dennis and his wife were at a family memorial service when Hurricane Harvey hit. When they returned two weeks later, their home had been subject to weeks of destroyed walls and flooring. With the funding from FEMA inadequate to repair their home, they turned to a local organization to aid in the rebuilding effort. Of the building materials, flooring was the most expensive and least available. Seeing this need, Good360 was able to secure flooring through Armstrong for the local nonprofit organization to help the Mitchells. Along with the AmeriCorps volunteers that continue work on the Mitchell home and homes like it, Good360 remains committed to rebuilding Texas. Partners like Armstrong Flooring have been essential to this mission with donations of high quality flooring that makes survivors happy to be home again.
