FCEF to fundraise on National Skilled Trades Day

Home Categories Installation FCEF to fundraise on National Skilled Trades Day

National Skilled Trades DayDalton—The Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF) announced its first annual day-long fundraising campaign to take place on Wednesday, May 3. This event purposefully coincides with National Skilled Trades Day to bring awareness to flooring installation as a skilled trade. National Skilled Trades Day was established in 2019 by City Machine Technologies in Youngstown, Ohio, to raise awareness about the value of the skilled trades workforce in the United States and honor skilled trades workers.

The all-day event will include the FCEF team live streaming, allowing you to join at your convenience. A line up of industry executives and special guests will join the FCEF team throughout the day. The complete schedule with guest lineup is in the process of being developed and its anticipated release will be in the days to come. FCEF will have a dedicated online donation portal where it will be monitoring contributions throughout the day as the team works toward their fundraising goal.

“More information will be coming soon, but for now we’re asking everyone to mark their calendars for Wednesday, May 3 as the day to make a commitment in support of the FCEF,” said Kaye Whitener, director of operations, FCEF. “We’d love to see all manufacturers, distributors, buying groups and independents use this day to promote support of the FCEF within their organizations. Perhaps challenges are made across competitive lines on who can raise the most support for this very important initiative.”
