VALPARAISO | Thanks to three generous companies, much needed renovations were made to the girls’ restroom at Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County’s Valparaiso Unit.

Paint and tile, donated by Home Depot, labor and the installation of a new tile floor, donated by Primo Flooring and a granite countertop, donated by Calibrated Surfaces transformed the space with 21st Century amenities.

“Our female members and guests needed an upgrade in restroom facilities and they certainly got it! Thanks to Home Depot, Primo Flooring and Calibrated Surfaces for their very generous donations of material and labor. These local companies proved their commitment to the community by graciously donating their high quality products and service. The tile work and solid surface countertop are first class,” said Ryan Smiley, Interim President of Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County.
