Hardwood flooring company Lumber Liquidators has donated one of its Dura Dance flooring systems to the Cincinnati, Ohio-based Highsteppers Drill Team as part of its Lay It Forward charity campaign.
The 15-year-old drill team recently moved into a new space, but didn’t have a proper floor, which led to Lumber Liquidators installing the Dura Dance system, which features underlying rubber to reduce impact and absorb energy.
"The young ladies at Highsteppers are confronted with tough issues everyday, but through dance we are able to help them overcome adversity and uncover their talents and capabilities," Highsteppers Founder and Director Kelli Harmon-Dobson said. "It's donations like Lumber Liquidators' that helped us open our own studio so we could continue to provide young women in the community with a place to dance and develop."
According to Lumber Liquidators CEO Robert Lynch, the donation will “support Highsteppers’ commitment to developing young women and the community they serve.
