Press Release –
(Reno, NV) – The Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation (NNCCF) is pleased to announce the completion of an office renovation project that took place during the COVID-19 closure. SILegacy Floor Finishing, and President Jim Farley, installed new vinyl flooring in common areas of NNCCF’s 3000-square-foot office space. The $10,000 flooring donation will help assist NNCCF in keeping a clean and sterile environment for children and families served by the foundation.
“During this time of economic strain in our community, we are grateful to supporters who have assisted us not only during this time to prepare our building and office, but to help our families remain safe,” said Shirley Folkins-Roberts, NNCCF executive director.
NNCCF received additional support from partners to improve the upkeep of the building and office space from Alston Construction and Victory Woodworks. The updates to the office will help provide a cleaner environment for children who have compromised immune systems. SILegacy Floor Finishing previously assisted NNCCF in 2019 by relaying flooring in two offices, and laid original flooring in the building in 2015.
During the COVID-19 office closure, NNCCF has operated remotely and at full capacity serving local families affected by childhood cancer with financial and emotional support programs. NNCCF recognizes partners in the community who have donated in-kind goods or services to support its programs. Donors include Dolan Auto Group, Angel Flight, Mike Krukow, Norwalk Furniture, Peterbilt Truck Parts & Equipment, Nevada Face Mask Warriors, Dotty Molt Photography, Love Your Melon, Misty Shore, MNG Partners, Cumulus Media Group, and Walton’s Funerals & Cremations.
NNCCF has had a significant increase in requests for additional assistance including support for groceries, utilities, rent and mortgage payments. Families are challenged by financial strain due to a childhood cancer diagnosis and are now facing additional economic strain due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
