Wholesaler donates plumbing supplies to help family with autistic children


Alex Nikolic hasn’t had his own bed since he was four years old. Now he even has his own bathroom connected to his bedroom to call his own.

Noble Corporation, Concord, Ont., has donated the plumbing supplies required for a Design for Hope renovation project in the greater Toronto area (GTA).

Design for Hope provides a fully redesigned home for a family in need within a local community. This specific project involves the Nikolic family which lives in a 1,500 sq. ft. brick bungalow with three bedrooms and one bathroom. Hilary and Mark Nikolic have three boys; the oldest Alex attends university and their twin boys James and Eric were born with autism.

The twins are both non-verbal and the severity of their symptoms have resulted in damages to the house. Over the years, the Nikolic’s have had to refinance their home after damage made their home “somewhat inhabitable.”

Toronto-based Stacey Cohen Design is leading the project with the help of over 75 trades, vendors, and volunteers. A GoFundMe page was created by Stacey Cohen Design with the intention to cover the expenses related to the renovation and to help the family pay off the mortgage.
