Role at Moulding DirectDL Steve Muto Moulding Direct copy

I am an Inside Sales Representative at Moulding Direct. We sell moulding, doors and flooring, as well as give design help and advice to homeowners and contractors regarding their projects and home remodel plans.

How did you first learn about Family Giving Tree?

I discovered Family Giving Tree after seeing wish cards on display at a local coffee shop during the Holiday Wish Drive a few years ago. After a couple years of fulfilling holiday wishes, I wanted to get more involved with the organization and decided to lead a drive!

What do you love most about being a Drive Leader?

I love being able to bring awareness to the needs of children in our community. By leading a drive in a retail setting, we are able to promote the mission of Family Giving Tree to people from all walks of life.

What was your favorite school supply item growing up?

I would say notebooks. I really enjoyed using them in creative writing, and when the semester was over, I would 
use the leftover blank pages for drawing.

Pro Tip for Drive Leaders

Think of creative ways in which to display the backpack tags for your drive. For example, we made an oversized decorative pencil to hang our tags from and put it on display in our store! It really draws attention and makes them noticeable to everyone!
