Ann Sacks® Tile & Stone, Inc. Receives World Vision Crystal Vision 2022 Award
KOHLER, Wis., February 9, 2022 /3BL Media/ ANN SACKS Tile & Stone, Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of tile and stone, received the World Vision Crystal Vision 2022 Award. This year’s award recipient was announced at a special breakfast event on Wednesday, February 9, at the Rosen Centre Hotel, Orlando, FL.
Timed to coincide with the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show 2022, the Crystal Vision Awards Committee has hosted the breakfast event since the award’s inception in 2001 to bring awareness to World Vision’s mission and celebrate the supporting partners who have donated building materials to the Storehouse of World Vision, which provides much needed supplies to assist struggling families to help them build – or rebuild – towards a better life. The global reach of World Vision has served over 336 communities, providing relief to almost 18 million people worldwide who have fallen victim to natural disasters, have become refugees, or have found themselves internally displaced.
“For over 20 years The Storehouse of World Vision, through the generosity of our building material donors, has aided countless families across the United States and world-wide,” said Larry Noble, national director, Corporate Engagement, World Vision. “Building material donations help to provide clean, safe, housing to those who otherwise would not be able to improve their conditions. From urban areas such as Chicago and the Bronx, to the rural areas of Appalachia, to First Nations peoples, building materials are integral to the work of lifting families from poverty. In times of natural disasters, these same donations allow entire communities to rebuild and recover. We are proud that Kohler and the Kohler family of companies has been at our side, providing these much-needed products for over 20 years, and we are pleased to recognize ANN SACKS for their significant contributions in 2021.”
Kohler Co., parent company of ANN SACKS, has been sponsoring this worthwhile humanitarian program since its beginning, and has received the Crystal Vision Award in 2001, 2011, and 2012. This is the first time ANN SACKS has received the award.
“It is a great honor to be this year’s recipient of the Crystal Vision award from the World Vision organization,” said Bonnie Choruby, president, ANN SACKS Tile & Stone, Inc. “To have the opportunity to support such a worthwhile cause and give back to the community by providing tile that will one day help contribute to a family’s comfort, shelter, and a sense of wellbeing is humbling. We are proud to be a part of the Kohler family and play a role in supporting this remarkable program and Kohler Co.’s longstanding support of the World Vision Warehouse efforts.”
