NGPP, Suppliers Team Up for Charity

NGPP

Chicago and Milwaukee chapter members of the National Guild of Professional Paperhangers donated their time and talent this spring to finishing a community social-services facility in a Chicago suburb.

The 25,000-square-foot multipurpose facility, Restoration Ministries’ Harvey House, will provide a variety of social services to those in need.

The project occurred through a connection with Restoration Ministries founder John Sullivan, a local dentist. For nearly 30 years, his grass-roots organization has helped those in need.

When NGPP members Phil and Jennifer Curtis, C.P., of Curtis Enterprises, learned about the new facility, they saw it as a service opportunity for the Chicago Chapter and others in the Midwest. Luck soon intervened, as a chapter member received a call from a business owner who was closing his retail store and wanted to donate 2000 rolls of assorted wallcoverings to the chapter. In addition, a remodeling contractor had 27 bolts of surplus commercial goods.

Eventually, the paperhangers spent three days in May installing 670 yards of commercial wallcovering in the first and second floor hallways and two reception area; more than 195 rolls of wallpaper in the arts-and-crafts room and administrative offices; and a digital mural printed by Roysons Corp. as well as three dry erase board kits in classrooms.
.
Primers and adhesives were donated by Roman Decorating Products; IdeaPaint dry erase board products were provided by MDC Wallcoverings; Gardz sealer was donated by Rustoleum/Zinsser Corporation; and all the wallcoverings were generously contributed by two local businesses.

In all, more than $72,000 in goods and services was donated to the project.
