Worcester Abrasives refinishes gymnasium, aerobic room floors at YWCA of Central Massachusetts

Saint-Gobain Abrasives recently partnered with Kenvo Floor Co., a local contractor, to re-finish the gymnasium and aerobic room floors all at no cost to the YWCA of Central Massachusetts.

Through their volunteerism and involvement with the YWCA of Central Massachusetts, employees in the High-Performance Refractories business in Worcester recognized the need and approached the Abrasives business to see if they could help. This resulted in the two Saint-Gobain businesses coming together to create a solution.

“This project presented a great opportunity to not only help the community, but also engage with a customer and test some of our new products,” said Wendy Williamson, Business Manager, DIY/Contractor, Saint-Gobain Abrasives U.S. and Canada. “Saint-Gobain is a strong partner in the Worcester community and it is through unique opportunities like these where we can fully engage our employees and use our products to make a difference.”

“As part of the YWCA of Central Massachusetts mission is to help families and strengthen communities, this donation will impact the more than 14,000 people who utilize the YWCA each year in its childcare, youth development and aerobics programs,” said Linda Cavaioli, Executive Director, YWCA. “I can’t thank Saint-Gobain and Kenvo Floors enough for all they have given to those we serve every day.”
