AURORA, Colo., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bona US, the world leader in hardwood floor care and maintenance since 1919, announced today that it donated thousands of dollars this year to various charitable organizations including Colorado flood relief efforts, NBA Cares, CASA (as part of the company's Mission Fund), Colorado Gives Day and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF).
