Tandus Centiva shows support for Publicolor

Home Press Release Tandus Centiva shows support for Publicolor

Dalton—Tandus Centiva, a Tarkett company, celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Publicolor at the organization’s annual Stir, Splatter + Roll Gala on May 16 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.

The gala honored two charitable individuals, The Honorable Michael R. Bloomberg and E. John Rosenwald, Jr., for their longtime support of Publicolor and its programs.

Recognizing the importance of education and Publicolor, Tandus Centiva along with Suzanne Tick and Antron carpet fiber support the Publicolor Summer Design Studio—an innovative work-study program that utilizes a non-traditional curriculum emphasizing tactile learning experiences. The combination of project-based learning, community service and paid work opportunities provide a compilation of meaningful activities for youth who otherwise would be idle when the school year ends in June.

The Tandus Centiva, Suzanne Tick and Antron carpet fiber collections contribute up to $0.30 per square yard to the Publicolor Summer Design Studio. The contribution is a match among partners based on product sales into education environments. Based on 2015 qualifying sales, $132,497.97 was donated to the Summer Design Studio, helping to prevent summer learning loss for 76 disconnected youth by uniquely teaching math and literacy through product design.

For more information on the Publicolor Summer Design Studio, view the video below. This documentary was selected to be screened during the Marche Du Film in Cannes, France, May 11 – 20.
