The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) will celebrate Kitchen & Bath Month with the launch of a free downloadable planner for consumers and by donating products to the Storehouse of World Vision.
October, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) will celebrate
Kitchen & Bath Month by helping consumers enhance the value of their homes
with the free downloadable NKBA Kitchen Planner and NKBA Bath Planner. In
addition to introducing the new planners at
NKBA.org/Planners , the association and its
members are donating products to the Storehouse of World Vision, official
non-profit partner of Kitchen & Bath Month.
Kitchen & Bath Month, the NKBA and its members will continue to aid
consumers by offering our free NKBA Kitchen and Bath Planners for those
interested in increasing the value of their homes with kitchen and bath
remodels," stated Don Sciolaro, chief executive officer of the NKBA.
"In addition, we are honored to continue our longstanding relationship
with World Vision by challenging our members to provide products such as
appliances, fixtures, lighting and surfacing materials for future installation
in facilities assisting those less fortunate."
Storehouse of World Vision aims to address the needs of Americans suffering
from disaster, personal crisis or economic hardship by providing families with
supplies such as clothing, personal care items and building materials. In
celebration of Kitchen & Bath Month, the NKBA has set a goal to collect 1,000
or more donations in the month of October from its nearly 40,000 kitchen and
bath industry members for donation to World Vision's Storehouse. As the United
States faces one of the worst economic times in history, these contributions
will allow World Vision partner agencies to construct or enhance community
centers, shelters and other facilities that support hundreds of thousands of
children and families in need nationwide.
these challenging economic times, the need to build and remodel support facilities
is essential, and a significant part of improving the facilities involves the
need for kitchen and bath product donations," said Efrain Perez, corporate
relations director of the Storehouse of World Vision. "With the help of
the NKBA and the donated products from members, we will be able to help our
partner agencies update many of those facilities and further support those in
need. We are grateful for our partnership with the NKBA, which allows us to
continue our mission of fighting poverty and injustice."
