Flooring retailer Alex Carpet One Floor and Home continues to support the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers' Building for America's Bravest program in its effort to build specially adapted "smart homes" for catastrophically injured service members. Building for America's Bravest was developed with the goal of offering America's returning heroes the opportunity to live better, more independent lives.
Each smart home is built to be energy efficient, automated and easily accessible, with customized features to suit the needs of the individual recipient. For three years, Carpet One Floor and Home has provided the flooring installation for every smart home built, while partner company Mohawk Industries has provided the floors.
Across the nation, Carpet One Floor and Home stores have come together with other local businesses to help build smart homes for catastrophically-injured heroes returning home to their communities. To date, the company has provided the flooring and installation for 26 smart homes, with five currently in progress. Together with Mohawk, its three-year commitment to the construction of smart homes will total $2.3 million in contributions.
In addition to hands-on support, the flooring retailer continues to raise funds and awareness at the local level through in-store initiatives and at the national level through public relations and marketing efforts. Customers are also offered the opportunity to support the cause through donations.
"Supporting Building For America's Bravest has been a gratifying experience," Tim Cullen of Alex Carpet One Floor and Home explained. "Our contributions are making a difference in the daily lives of our nation's heroes, and for us, that feels like the ultimate way to thank them for their sacrifice."
