Thank you to Leadwise, DDC, Threecore, Ceso and Hartizen Homes for partnering with us for Giving Tuesday!

The Mustard Seed of Central Florida is grateful to Leadwise, DDC, Threecore, Ceso, and Hartizen Homes for partnering with us for Giving Tuesday. For the last several years, this company cohort has partnered with The Mustard Seed for their Impact Day.

After Hurricane Ian, we returned to the warehouse and discovered that through the storm, our dish and linen rooms had flooded. Vital inventory for our program was damaged, and the flooring, a low pile carpet, was destroyed.

Through their Impact Day, staff from Leadwise, DDC, Threecore, Ceso, and Hartizen Homes purchased and donated replacement flooring, a sturdy laminate, to be installed in these rooms. The teams then came in on Giving Tuesday and installed this flooring, then re-installed all of the shelving for the rooms.

In addition to replacing and installing the flooring, the team provided two pallets of linens, plates, pots and pans, cutlery and small appliances to stock these rooms to provide out to families in need.

A special thank you to Barry Neal Floor and Home for assisting with this project!
