Armor Tough Coatings Gives Back
Armor Tough Coatings takes pride in its community just outside of Detroit in Burton, Michigan. One of the ways we give back is by donating our time, services, and expertise to local organizations in need.
We recently had the privilege to serve the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), which serves the health and well-being of locals through medicine, public health, and social services.
The MDHHS Foster Care Division was in desperate need of an update to their four family visitation rooms, which were plain, unattractive, and outdated. However, the MDHHS is supported through small amounts of federal funding and did not have enough to cover any additional work throughout the office, which meant professional painting services were out of budget.
In an attempt to spruce up the visitation rooms, a remodeling committee was formed to recreate and foster a warm, family-friendly environment inviting for visitors. They searched for community business partners willing to donate their services for a good cause.
That’s when the committee reached out to Joe Elmore, the founder of Armor Tough Coatings, to seek his assistance. Joe was more than happy to lend his time and labor, along with his right-hand man and younger brother, Mikey. Together, they offered to help give the four family visitation rooms a fresh coat of paint.
On the Friday before Thanksgiving, Joe and Mikey started painting the MDHHS rooms early in the morning and finished later that afternoon. As a result, the MDHHS Foster Care Division is now able to host families in a new and welcoming environment.
