One happy “shopper” at Diamond Supply’s giveback event in Texas.

“Many of us have family or close relationships with people who live in Houston, or who have family in the areas that have been hit. Diamond Supply Co. Founder Nick Tershay is among that group. He immediately knew he wanted and needed to help those in need by donating, and he also knew he wanted it to be substantial.

“You can’t put a price tag on feeling good and the positive energy that is created when a person knows there are others who are looking out for them. And when you know you’re looking good – you’re feeling good. It is with this idea in mind that Diamond Supply Co. is making this unprecedented donation to the people of Texas during this incredibly difficult time. #HoustonStrong”
