Companies who have donated materials and services to complete the remodel include: Airtron Houston - a/c registers; Ferguson Enterprises, Inc – sink; Kent Moore Cabinets - sink and cabinet for the bathroom and custom made cabinets for the mini-kitchen; Ceiling Fans Direct - 3 ceiling fans; Dal-Tile Corporation - floor tiles; Interceramic Tile and Stone Gallery - backsplash tile for mini kitchen; Price Phister – faucet; Sherwin-Williams Paint Company – paint; Cagnelosi Companies - countertop for mini-kitchen; 1-800-Mattresses – 30 mattress sets and Houston Window Fashions - window treatment.  The project is expected to be completed in the next few weeks.
