Primera Renovation Provides the Girls With a Sense of Pride
Tempe, AZ. September, 2011-FIBCO Family Services, Inc. has been running the Ujima House, a residential program assisting pregnant and parenting teen mothers, for 15 years without proper upgrades to the facility. They were in desperate need of assistance with a much needed renovation project. Primera was honored to step in and donate a great portion of the material, professional time, and labor to ensure the property received a quality upgrade.
T.J. Wheeler, CEO of Primera said, “At Primera, we believe in giving back to the community. The Ujima House had a specific need to bring their home interior to life and we were able to step up and help get the project completed.”
Primera was able to provide granite countertops in the kitchen and baths, as well as Wiley Brown Birch cabinets and vanities. New carpet was installed the main hallway and in all the bedrooms while vinyl flooring was laid in most of the common areas. Site supervision, demolition, materials, and installation were also contributed by Primera Interiors, a full service supplier.
From large partnerships to individual employees volunteering, the entire Primera team is dedicated to serving the community. They take stewardship very seriously and want to help others thrive by giving back and sharing success. In the recent past, Primera and its principles have contributed well over $1 million to numerous charitable foundations including Fuel the Mission, Helping Hurting People, Child Fund, and Children International.
