|Carpet One Floor & Home Raises Over $92,000 to Support Veterans|
|Published Friday, September 29, 2017|
Manchester-based company Carpet One Floor & Home, a division of CCA Global Partners, participated in the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation Annual T2T 5K Run & Walk in New York City on September 24. The event honors the sacrifice of Firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on September 11, 2001. The Tunnel to Towers foundation supports our first responders and our military through the Building for America’s Bravest organization. This organization builds smart homes for our most catastrophically injured veterans.
Carpet One Floor & Home’s team of over 200 store owners and employees raised an astounding $92,697 for the cause putting them in the top three fundraising teams at the event. Store owners traveled from all across the United States to participate in this event.
Carpet One Floor & Home has been supporting the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation through active participation in their Building for America’s Bravest program since 2014. To date, they have installed flooring in 33 smart homes for catastrophically injured service members.
“I’m proud to see our company come together to support this organization,” said Howard Brodsky, CEO of CCA Global Partners. “Our employees and members have worked so hard to raise funds and have come together as a team to make a big impact.”
The Carpet One Floor & Home team dedicated their efforts to the memory of Mike Blanton, a Carpet One Floor & Home member who unexpectedly passed away this spring. “Mike was an exemplary individual who dedicated both his time and money to giving back to his community. He played a big role in the construction of Cpl Todd Love’s smart home in Douglasville, GA,” said Brodsky.
Members who were not able to attend the NYC event have also been participating through coordinating their own local events and collecting donations for the team.
“It really makes me so proud to work for such a caring organization,” said Theresa Fisher, SVP of Visual Merchandising and Store Design for CCA Global Partners. Fisher has been a key leader in the company’s efforts to support the Building for America’s Bravest program.
