Flooring America joins forces with Beaulieu to support Hurricane Sandy Disaster relief effort

Hurricane Sandy was the largest and second most costly Atlantic hurricane on record, causing damage that will likely top $20 billion. In the United States, Hurricane Sandy impacted at least 24 states, with severe damage in New Jersey and New York.  Together, Flooring America and Beaulieu of America have joined forces to support the Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief effort in the hardest hit areas.

According to Keith Spano, President of Flooring America, “The devastation to New York and New Jersey is unbelievable. As a company, we wanted to support the communities that have literally lost everything and give back in any way that we can to help. By joining forces with Beaulieu of America, we are able to double the contributions to the Red Cross organization.”

Beginning on Monday, December 3rd through January 31st, 2013, Flooring America and Beaulieu of America will each donate $10 for every Resista Refresh   carpet order that is purchased and shipped to New York and New Jersey. The Resista Refresh carpet provides a permanent antimicrobial that has proven effective against stain and odor caused by bacteria, mold and mildew.

“These communities are struggling to begin the process of rebuilding, while dealing with very difficult circumstances such as no power, homelessness, and no timeline as to when they will be allowed back into their households,” said David Harrison from Perry’s Flooring America. “I’m incredibly proud that Flooring America and Beaulieu of America are partnering to help these communities to get back on their feet again.”

To support the Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort, visit the Red Cross Disaster Relief website or call 1-800-733-2767 or by texting REDCROSS to 90999.
