Growing Partnership Between Truckee-Tahoe Lumber Co. and the CR Johnson Healing Center
July 10, 2014
Owners of Truckee-Tahoe Lumber Co. in Truckee, brothers Andrew and Ira Cross, have been huge supporters of the High Fives Foundation since the organization's inception in 2009. Growing up in Truckee and understanding the adherent dangers associated with participating in winter sports, the Cross brothers are firm believers in the High Fives Foundation mission.
Along with attending as many High Fives Foundation fundraising events as their busy schedules will allow, Andrew and Ira have graciously donated wood and hardware over the last few years, helping shape the CR Johnson Healing Center into a training ground for community members and High Fives athletes.
In June 2013, Truckee-Tahoe Lumber Co. donated wood, door hardware and merchandise display materials to create a storage and mailing unit along with a home for the facility's infrared healing sauna.
With the rapid growth of the High Fives Foundation, more storage and a permanent mailing space was necessary to meet demands. By July, the good people at McEneaney Construction used the donated wood to erect the perfect unit, creating a more functional and efficient space in the Healing Center.
Most recently, TTLC donated wood, door hardware and an impressive barn door. McEneaney Construction used it to build a division between the entrance to the Healing Center and the facility's gym.
"I grew up with CR and the Johnson Family, and they were a large part of my childhood," said Andrew Cross, Co-Owner of Truckee-Tahoe Lumber Co. "Anytime that I am able to help spread the mission of High Fives and carry on the legacy of my good friend CR through donating to the Healing Center I am honored."
