East Madison Community Center
East Madison Community Center (EMCC) will undergo a complete interior makeover thanks to Design for a Difference-Madison. At the Floor360 Spring Into Design event, EMCC Executive Director Tom Moen and Assistant Director De’Kendrea Stamps received the 2018 honor.
East year Design for a Difference-Madison selects one nonprofit for a makeover. From April through October, a design team will plan and execute designing the new space. The renovation will include new Resin Flooring Installation, paint, furniture and decorative finishes. Last year’s makeover at Centro Hispano was valued at $600,000 for donated materials, design time and labor.
Angela Skalitzky, vice president of sales and design at Floor360, said she can envision transforming EEMC into “a fun, flexible space that gives energy back to the people who use it.” The goal of Design for a Difference is to improve the space, shine a spotlight on the nonprofit and showcase the power of design to make a difference in people’s lives.
The work will be done by hundreds of businesses and individuals who volunteer time, materials and manpower to implement the design. If you’re interested in helping EMCC prepare for the remodel, contact De’Kendrea Stamps at [email protected]to volunteer.
