In 2007, John Wallace, owner of JW Floor Covering & Re:Source Floors in San Diego, California, participated in a mission trip to Mozambique, Africa, to help build a church. He was so inspired by his experiences and the joy of providing service to those in need, he decided he wanted to do even more to give back.
Upon his return, he established a 13 member charity committee to help him achieve his goal. Its initial emphasis was on providing donations to worthwhile community service organizations and individuals, but quickly changed to become a service based volunteer community service organization.
In 2008, JW & Re:Source Floors Outreach for Humanity (“OUTREACH”) was established as a 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit charitable organization, whose mission is “Impacting Lives”. Outreach is a grass-roots, 100% volunteer-run organization, led by a 15 member board of directors with the help of hundreds of volunteers throughout the year!
To compassionately serve those in need by providing financial support, time and talent in order to impact lives for the better; while creating an environment that encourages others to participate in a selfless manner.
