Tarkett Donates $400,000 to Habitat for Humanity
Solon, Ohio -- In 2018, Tarkett donated a total of $400,000 of product to Habitat for Humanity in North America as part of the company’s corporate social responsibility initiative, Tarkett Cares. The partnership between Tarkett and Habitat began during the 2017 hurricane season, with Tarkett donating $250,000 of Johnsonite and Tandus Centiva flooring earlier this year to help with Habitat’s disaster recovery and rebuilding efforts in Texas and Florida.
For 2018, Tarkett is supporting Home Builders Blitz at the Silver corporate partner level, donating $150,000 in product to the program to help build safe, affordable housing with families in need. The Home Builders Blitz is a week-long initiative each summer that enlists help from thousands of professional home builders who, working alongside Habitat homeowners, volunteer their time and talents to construct, repair, and revitalize homes.
Tarkett Cares encourages all employees around the world to spend up to two days a year of their work time on a charitable initiative and to share their time and expertise on a volunteer basis. Employees throughout North America have had opportunities to volunteer this time with Habitat during 2018, and many are slated to give back during the Builder’s Blitz.
