American Standard, part of LIXIL, adopted a local homeless shelter near its NJ headquarters to bring its brand promise to life: making life healthier, safer, more comfortable and more beautiful for all.
Out with the old! Demolition begins.
LIXIL Americas CEO Steve Delarge was one of the employees who took part in the renovation by contributing painting time.
More employees at work.
O'Reilly DePalma team lead on the project, Mary Ann Blackburn, joined in on the painting after a quick lesson (PS: her son Dan was in the previous picture!)
Check out the beautiful before-and-afters!
