This year, Le Seur, Minnesota-based Cambria teamed up with like-minded Matter – a nonprofit on a mission to expand access to health next door and around the world – to improve the wellbeing in local communities and spread holiday cheer. In addition to providing a record number of healthy meal boxes to 900 Minnesota families, the two worked together to donate a one-of-a-kind, #CambriaQuartz fire truck to the city of David, Panama.
Though, the city will not get any ordinary fire truck – Cambria decided to give the truck a paint job to raise awareness of Matter’s efforts and provide the city with something unique and truly revamped. This important, life-saving community resource was painted black and decked out with the Cambria and Matter logos and, of course, top-of-the-line technology.
On its journey from Minnesota to Panama, the truck stopped in Atlanta on Thursday, Dec. 17, 2015 at Atlanta Kitchen’s new Cambria Gallery – Buckhead. Customers and employees were able to get a first hand glimpse of the truck, take photos and learn more about Cambria and Matter’s partnership and mission.
Construction Resources’ Atlanta Kitchen is an exclusive Cambria Lexus Partner and opened the Cambria Gallery – Buckhead in July 2015. The gallery provides consumers and trade professionals with a beautiful venue to inspire, collaborate and experience the versatility of Cambria, the leading innovator of stone with 126 quartz designs. On display now are various applications that incorporate Cambria, such as a bar, conference table, custom tile and slab flooring, half and full-sized slabs and more.
Fire departments in the U.S. interested in donating equipment or supporting firefighters in the city of David are encouraged to contact Matter at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on Construction Resources and Cambria, visit www.CRHomeUSA.com.
Recently, the Women’s Giving Circle of the Atlanta Children’s Shelter (ACS) shopped for a cause at the Cambria Gallery – Buckhead. The special event was hosted by Michelle Livingstone, ACS board member and vice president of supply chain transportation for The Home Depot, and was planned as a way to strengthen the bond within the Circle while benefitting the ACS.
As members of the Women’s Giving Circle shopped a variety of gorgeous jewelry, handbags and other gift items from Stella & Dot, they enjoyed complimentary wine and appetizers. The #Shop4ACause event was a success, and 15 percent of profits went directly to the ACS to help provide homeless families in the Atlanta area find independence through loving, quality child development and support services. And, since the event was so successful, Stella & Dot has agreed to keep the order link active through Dec. 21 so ACS can continue to reach its $1,000 goal. You can shop the ACS trunk show online at www.stelladot.com/ts/xcub6.

Each design is influenced by the tides with unique linear movement in each slab. The earthy and organic Oakmoor captures muted tones of cream, tan and caramel drifting alongside waves of graduated grays reminiscent of stately wood aged to perfection.
The complex and flowing Roxwell presents elegant serpentine swaths of gray dappled with white, black and charcoal flecks. It impresses with a hint of sparkle to create the fascinating effect of a wave-kissed sandy beach.
With the launch of the two new designs, Cambria, the only family-owned, American-made producer of quartz surfaces in the United States, now has a total of 126 designs on the market. Cambria is a stain resistant, nonporous surface that is harder, stronger, safer and easier to care for than other stone surfaces.
Check out slabs of Oakmoor and Roxwell today at the Cambria Gallery – Buckhead. Located across the street from the Buckhead Atlanta retail district and a couple of doors down from the Buckhead Theatre at 3096 Roswell Road, this upscale gallery provides endless inspiration for kitchen and bath projects.

The Remodelers Association of the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders (GBAHB) recently hosted the Remodelers Skeet Shoot on Oct. 27 at Selwood Farm in Alpine, AL. Teams in both the morning and afternoon flights were awarded prizes for best scores, and raffle prizes such as shotguns, YETI coolers and more were given away to attendants at the end of the event.
“This was such an exciting event, and we are thankful to everyone who came out and participated,” said Liz Kennedy, sales representative for CR Home of Alabama. “We love bringing the community together for networking events like the annual skeet shoot, and we are looking forward to having an even better turn out next year!”
With more than 225 participants, this year’s skeet shoot saw almost twice as many participants as last year, and it was an extremely successful event for both networking and business. Those who participated were top remodelers in Birmingham, as well as vendors and local new home builders. CR Home of Alabama and Cambria sponsored the Turkey Shoot and were able to have one on one time with individual shooters.
The GBAHB provides the voice of the housing industry, advocating for quality-built homes and promoting the highest level of professionalism.
