How do you give something back to a group of local firefighters who give so much to their community? If you are a home improvements company, you start by painting the fire headquarters.

After Monk's painted Fire Chief Byrne's home, the Chief noted to Trevor Monk that his fire headquarters on Bond Dr. in Union Township, was in need of some painting. The metal bay doors were not properly prepped and the paint was peeling off the doors in strips.

Monk’s Home Improvements offered to provide the paint and the painting labor free of charge to help the Township of Union Fire Department.

Monk’s prepped the four large bay doors (three in the front, one in the back) by scraping of all the loose paint, sanding and powerwashing. Then the doors were primed and painted.

In a Union TV34 interview with Mayor Manuel Figueiredo, Chief Byrne explains, “The front of our building is the showcase to our community…I can’t tell you just how grateful we are for (Monk’s Home Improvements) to step up and do this for our community.”

Looking out over Friberger Park, Mayor Figueiredo continued, “We have our library here, the town hall. This is a big traffic area, and the work you are doing will be seen by many, many people.”

The Township of Union Fire Department includes over 100 career firefighters and civilian employees. We are happy to have been able to do a little something for this team of dedicated professionals. The Union Fire Headquarters looks great!
