Home News Mohawk provides for Calhoun nonprofit

Family Resource Center of Gordon CountyCalhoun, Ga.—Team members from Mohawk’s Customer Experience Center in Calhoun recently came together to provide flooring and paint throughout the Family Resource Center of Gordon County (FRC), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to prevent child abuse.

“It started in the fall when Heidi Duckworth, Mohawk human resources manager, and a team of Mohawk employees toured the center to see if there were any service projects they could become involved in,” said Allen Ables, Mohawk director of customer experience quality. “At first, the discussion revolved around painting the hallways but then we noticed that their flooring needed to be replaced as well.”

From there, team members worked together to secure donations of carpet and LVT from Mohawk, as well as paint from Sherwin Williams and Lowes. On March 11, Mohawk’s 33 volunteers worked in shifts to pull up old flooring and paint the hallways, making way for the company’s field services crew to install over 6,000 square feet of carpet vinyl tile throughout the building.

“The people at the Family Resource Center of Gordon County are dedicated to helping the most vulnerable of those in our community,” said Kyle West, territory manager and chair of the CX Team’s Community Involvement Committee. “Seeing so many employees across multiple departments come together and create a more inviting space for these children is truly something to be proud of.”

Angela White, Family Resource Center executive director, said: “We are so grateful to Mohawk for the donation of time and materials for this project. This was a huge undertaking, and it was amazing to see the Mohawk team come together to give back to the community and give the center a fresh, new look.”

Mohawk employees have also supported the Family Resource Center during the past year with donations of food, diapers and toiletry items for families in need, as well as Transportation employees who donated new planters for the front of the building.
