Wayne Tile presents $23,000 donation to Fire Department.

On October 27, 2011 Wayne Tile Company donated a total of $23,000 to The Wayne Fire Department.

A check for $23,000 was presented to Fire Chief John Gabriel of the Wayne Fire Department Fire Company Number 2 located on Myrtle Avenue (Alps Road and Route 23) in Wayne New Jersey.

Two years ago Wayne Tile, a family owned company, had a fire at its Wayne Location. Wayne Tile decided to hold a tent sale in order to make room for new product lines, and as a thank you, donate a portion of the proceeds to the fire department. The sale was a great success as inventory was sold at greatly reduced prices and a donation was made to the Wayne Fire Department. This year, with all of the flooding in the Wayne area they decided to do it again. Wayne Tile had another Tent Sale and the outcome was again a huge success.

Michael Westra a partner commented, “ what started as a way of moving inventory, and saying thank you to the brave volunteers of the Wayne Fire Department, has continued as an annual celebration of community support and thanks.” In an outpouring of support, hundreds of people flocked to the tent sale which took place October 6th through October 8th. “So many people have been effected by the flooding which has destroyed so much in our area, tile happens to be a great alternative to other building materials which don’t fair as well in wet conditions, to be able to provide our community with this option at these prices is a great thing.”

Bob Westra, another partner of Wayne Tile, commented, “we were thrilled by the outpouring of support by the community and very proud to be able to donate $23,000. This year we worked harder and are able to donate more then last year, which is really special for us. As a family owned and operated business, it is the support of the community that allows us to thrive. Having this opportunity to give back is special for me and all of my family members.” “It just goes to show you that out of something bad…the fire… came something good – the opportunity to provide incredible value to the community and support the hero’s of the fire department who have been working so hard in recent months.”

Wayne Tile has 5 locations serving Tri State Area customers. Locations are in Wayne (store and design center), Ramsey (design center), Rockaway and Sussex.
