UkraineClemson, S.C.—The Tile Council of North America (TCNA), the National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) and the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA) launched a fundraiser for Save the Children’s humanitarian efforts in Ukraine and the region, to help protect and support children and their families.
