Man With a Heart of Gold

This is Ruffell and Brown’s third time around. They provided the window dressing for the Casa Maria Emergency Housing Radical Reno. They were there last year at the Mustard Seed custom fitting their windows. And just yesterday Nigel was at the Threshold Housing Rad Reno site preparing the windows for treatments tailored for youth.

While he was there measuring Nigel and I had an opportunity to talk. He told me how he had left home at 15; how he had moved constantly as a young person; how his youth was tumultuous. He considers himself lucky. He might not be the successful business, heartfelt father, and community leader he is today if, back then, just a few things had gone differently.

For this reason when Amy McGeachy told him about this project for youth, he wanted to help.

I deeply enjoyed our conversation and the opportunity to get to know him better. Thanks Nigel and Ruffell & Brown for being examples of good business and community heart. If you need window treatments, you now know who to call.
