Home News FCIF highlights new grant recipient

Michele and her daughters

“The Floor Covering Industry Foundation has made my life a lot easier,” said Michele, a recent Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) grant recipient.

Michele, a single mother with two daughters, has worked on the clerical side of the flooring industry for nine years. Recently, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and was out of work during her treatment.

During that time, a social worker at her local cancer treatment center connected Michele with the FCIF, which was able to help Michele get caught up on outstanding bills. The grant she received also gave her peace of mind, knowing she would have funds from FCIF to help pay for the cost of her medical care that insurance did not cover.

“I would like to thank the Floor Covering Industry Foundation for helping people that have unseen medical issues and are not able to work,” she said.
