Floors & More donates flooring to Habitat for Humanity ReStores as part of new national partnership
AUBURN, Mass. (September 27, 2016) – Floors & More Buying Group, parent company of Floors to Ceiling and Big Bob’s Outlet, today announced a national partnership with Habitat for Humanity and a commitment to donate $500,000 of flooring to Habitat for Humanity ReStores across the country.
Habitat ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, home goods, building materials and appliances at a fraction of the retail price, helping local Habitat for Humanity organizations fund the construction, rehabilitation or repair of affordable homes within their communities. Proceeds generated from Floors & More’s product donations of flooring products, such as wood flooring and carpet rolls, will help Habitat work alongside more families to build or improve a place they can call home.
“We are so excited to be moving forward with this partnership. Supporting the good work of Habitat for Humanity meshes perfectly with our commitment to give back. This organization has helped so many people. We are honored to be able to join the important cause by contributing to their mission,” said Vinnie Virga, co-CEO of Floors & More.
