California Closets: Gulf Coast Veterans Appreciation Week

The entire California Closets Gulf Coast team is supportive of our men and woman who have served this great country.  To honor and show their gratitude to our Veterans, California Closets Gulf Coast will be donating $25 to Fisher House for every consultation booked from November 11-16, 2019.  To promote and support this effort, the team will also be wearing camouflaged logo shirts all week.

All Veterans and First Responders are welcome into their showroom in Metairie (3211 N. Causeway Blvd) and Baton Rouge (7415 Corporate Blvd at Town Place) every day for a free cup of coffee on Veterans Day, and all week (November 11-16th), they will receive a special gift as well.  In addition, to honor our Veterans every day, CC Gulf Coast gives an additional 5% discount off the best offer, even on promotions, to Active Duty, Reserve, Retired or Honorably Discharged Veterans with every job they do with us. This is their way of saying Thank You for serving this great Country and giving us the opportunities we have.

Fisher House has been chosen by the Gulf Coast team as one of their two organizations in which they will donate 250 or more volunteer hours in 2020.  A Fisher House is a “home away from home” where military and Veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve.  Fisher Houses typically have 16 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room, and an inviting living room.  In addition to financial contributions, the Gulf Coast team will also be donating custom closets and storage spaces for the new Fisher House being built in Louisiana.

New owner Joe Lindenmayer said, “Being a Marine and Veteran of Desert Storm, along with 1 of 5 brothers who served in our family, and having our GM, Jed who is an Army Veteran, we believe in giving back and honoring those who have served. Supporting the Fisher House with financial contributions, along with in-kind support as they build their first facility in Louisiana, is the community involvement of which we want to be a part. Our families and our California Closets Team are equally supportive with spouses, friends and family who have served as well. We want to say thank you!”

California Closets Gulf Coast’s goal is to raise between $500 and $1,000 from this event alone, along with $10,000 of in-kind donations and 250 volunteer hours for the Fisher House.  If you would like to donate to Fisher House, please click here

Paul Davis Restoration: Help Us Honor Fallen Heroes at the Fayetteville, NC 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb

The Fayetteville 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb is a way to honor and remember the FDNY firefighters, police, and EMS who selflessly gave their lives so that others might live on 9-11-2001. Each participant pays tribute to an FDNY firefighter, police officer, or EMS member by climbing the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center. Your individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of an FDNY brother, but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. Through firefighter and community participation we can ensure that each of the 343 firefighters, 60 police officers, and 10 EMS workers are honored and that the world knows that we will never forget.

The Stair Climbs fund the programs provided by the NFFF to support the families of your local fallen firefighters and the FDNY Counseling Services Unit.

Paul Davis of the Sandhills is proud to have a team of employees and their families participating in this event, and will have bottled water on hand for other participants.
