Metrotown Floors + Interiors is a full-service company with a 4,000sf showroom located in Burnaby. We sell, design & install flooring products, cabinets and counter tops for both residential and commercial clients. We offer more then just excellent customer service-we offer peace of mind.
When our Metrotown Floors + Interiors team learned about Burnaby Family Life we were surprised to hear about all the support they offer to our local community. The things they do really resonate with us. Their dedication to families is something that we really wanted to be apart of. We wanted to give back to our community by assisting them using our trade. With the help of Kraus Flooring, we are donating new commercial grade carpet and our time to Olivet Church in spaces that are used by Burnaby Family Life’s programs.
The Pregnancy Outreach Program is run out of Olivet Church, this is the only program which Burnaby Family Life delivers in New Westminster. This location allows the organization to deliver the specific program to meet the high demand from that region. Currently there is a 5-month waiting period for the Pregnancy Outreach Program. With stagnant federal funding for many consecutive years, the organization is facing many challenges with the steep increase in demand from the community.
As a small business that values the importance of family, we want to give back to help build roots in our community. Learning about some of the things these women and children must overcome and the demand on this program, Metrotown Floors + Interiors felt a need to support this group. Gathering in a more beautiful and comfortable space could aid in confidence and help to empower the users of the space over time. As an added benefit this space is also used by members of the church.
