Carpet One Floor & Home store owners and employees recently participated in the annual Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk in New York.
The event honors the sacrifice of Firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on Sept. 11, 2001. The Tunnel to Towers foundation supports our first responders and our military through the Building for America’s Bravest program. This program builds customized Smart Homes for catastrophically injured veterans.
Carpet One Floor & Home members and Mohawk Industries have partnered to furnish and install all the flooring for the homes built by the Building for America’s Bravest program.
“For the 15th anniversary of 9/11, we wanted to bring our store owners together to participate in the T2T 5K Run & Walk," said Howard Brodsky, CEO of CCA Global Partners, the parent company of Carpet One Floor & Home. "We’re proud that over 200 members of our cooperative participated and even more that have helped raise funds for Building for America’s Bravest.”
The efforts of independently-owned Carpet One Floor & Home stores across North America as well as employees in Carpet One Floor & Home’s two corporate offices have generated $103,457 in donations.
“The overwhelming support for this organization truly shows the passion that our store owners have for supporting this worthy cause,” said Theresa Fisher, senior vice president of visual merchandising for CCA Global Partners. “It makes me very proud to be part of such an extraordinary organization that is not only focused on being a good business but also contributing to making the world a better place.”
