Carpet One Floor and Home raised more than $92,000 in support of veterans through its participation in the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation annual 5K Run and Walk on Sept. 24. in New York. The event honors firefighter Stephen Siller who saved others on September 11, 2001. The Tunnel to Towers foundation supports first responders and military personnel through the Building for America’s Bravest, an organization that builds smart homes for injured veterans.
Carpet One Floor & Home’s team of more than 200 store owners and employees raised $92,697 for the cause. Store owners also traveled from across the U.S. to participate in the fundraiser. Members who were not able to attend the New York event participated through coordinating their own local events and collecting donations for the team.
