The Southern California Carpet One dealers have been proud supporters and sponsors of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation efforts in Orange County for 3 years in a row!
On a national level, Carpet One Floor & Home was introduced to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation six years ago and has since been installing the flooring in each Smart Home built by the organization. These homes are given to catastrophically injured veterans – many of them triple and quadruple amputees. The Smart Homes allow these courageous individuals to regain some of the independence they’ve lost due to their injuries.
As one can imagine, the technology and materials needed to build these custom homes can be quite expensive. Through donations like the ones provided by Carpet One Floor & Home and flooring manufacturer, Mohawk, Inc., the Foundation is able to significantly decrease these costs. “We’ve devoted ourselves to doing anything we can to take some expenses off the table so we can get more homes done, more quickly,” says Theresa Fisher, SVP of Visual Merchandising and Store Design at Carpet One Floor & Home and also the leader of this initiative within the company.
In addition to supporting the Foundation’s home building projects throughout the year, Carpet One Floor & Home has brought together members and staff each year to participate in the T2T 5K in NYC as well as locally in Southern California. The event honors Stephen Siller, a heroic firefighter who lost his life on September 11th, and all service members who put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms.
Carpet One Floor & Home plans to continue their support of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation through flooring installations and will continue to raise additional funds to support the organization in their efforts. Please join the Southern California dealers in helping to make the fundraising efforts in California a huge success!
