GO Resilient Supports The Mark Preece Family House

Sep 8, 2014

GO Resilient, the exclusive Canadian flooring distributor of Karndean Designflooring has supported The Mark Preece Family House with a $20,000 donation of luxury vinyl flooring for its Hamilton residence.

The Mark Preece Family House opened in April of 2011 as a “home away from home” for families of critical care patients, being treated at Hamilton area hospitals.

The family house was named in honour of the late Dr. Mark Preece, a physician in the Intensive Care Unit at Hamilton Health Sciences, who passed away at the age of 38 due to cancer. While Mark was being treated in the United States, the Preece family experienced how important an affordable and accessible residence is for a family who has a loved one with a critical illness.

The stone house was built in the 1870’s serving as a malt house, and later a machine shop, before being converted in to the Mark Preece Family House. With 14 family bedrooms, common living room, kitchen/dining area, and laundry, the House has done an exceptional job of providing a calm and restful shot-term residence.

As of December 2013, the Mark Preece Family House has served over 1300 families. The generous donations of construction materials have helped make a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere for the residence.
