Manchester, N.H.—Carpet One Floor & Home store owners and employees participated in the annual Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk in New York City on Sept. 25. The efforts of independently-owned stores across North America as well as employees in the company’s two corporate offices generated $103,457 in donations.
The annual event honors the sacrifice of Firefighter Stephen Siller who laid down his life to save others on Sept. 11, 2001. The Tunnel to Towers foundation supports first responders and military through the Building for America’s Bravest program. This program builds customized smart homes for injured veterans.
In appreciation for their sacrifice and service to their country, Carpet One Floor & Home members and Mohawk Industries partnered to furnish and install all the flooring for the homes built by the Building for America’s Bravest program. “For the 15th anniversary of 9/11, we wanted to bring our store owners together to participate in the T2T 5K Run & Walk. We’re proud that over 200 members of our cooperative participated and that even more have helped raise funds for Building for America’s Bravest,” said Howard Brodsky, CEO of CCA Global Partners (the parent company of Carpet One Floor & Home).
