Taylor Adhesives and the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) are hosting a year-end fundraiser on Taylor Time Live, December 21 at 11:00 a.m. EST. The event, “Give the Gift of Hope,” will feature industry leaders, as well as testimonials from those who have received financial assistance due to a catastrophic health crisis.

“For those eligible recipients, FCIF can help people get back on their feet after a devastating illness or accident,” said Paul Murfin, president of Taylor.

During the live event, viewers will be asked to make a donation to the FCIF. Taylor has pledged to match the first $2,500 donated during the event.

“The Christmas season is all about remembering what’s important,” said Seth Gladden, director of marketing for Taylor and host of Taylor Time Live. “What better way to help those in need than to donate to the FCIF.”

FCIF just celebrated its 40th anniversary and is one of only three foundations in the U.S. that provide financial assistance to their own. Current and former flooring industry employees and their immediate family members may apply. FCIF is a non-profit, tax-deductible charity.

“We are excited about the support we receive from companies like Taylor,” said Andrea Blackbourn, executive director of FCIF. “During the upcoming Taylor Time Live event, we’d like to encourage our corporate partners to join Taylor and match donations.”
