The concept of giving back takes on many forms, including donating money, empowering others, volunteering time, or volunteering skills to complete a project in need of those specific talents. But as much as we’d like to say it’s all about being selfless, the truth is—it’s not. When we give back we enjoy ten times the gratification than the amount of time, money, or talent we sacrifice. In actuality, giving back is not a sacrifice at all, because it rewards us with so much more than we’re giving.
We are proud to support the charitable events and community efforts with national and local initiatives. Floor Coverings International® and our sister companies have had the pleasure to serve dozens of local and national charities. In the past year, through a partnership with one of our suppliers, we have donated more than $60,000 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Most recently, we have partnered with Ronald McDonald House, where we host events then donate a portion of all sales directly to the charity. To find out more about the FirstService initiative or volunteer to partake in events within your community, our Social Purpose Calendar includes a list of all scheduled upcoming events.
We have pride in our brand and respect for the communities we serve. It is with great pleasure that we can continue our mission to give back, help those in need, and build a community where everyone is actively involved in achieving what is needed for the greater good.
A Message From Our CEO
We take pride every day in providing our customers with the best products and in-home customer service in the flooring industry. But aside from satisfying our customers and clients, what truly makes us proud is our commitment to improving the communities we serve. At Floor Coverings International®, customer satisfaction, community service, and social action work hand-in-hand.
It is in our ethos to be proactive, selfless, and genuine in our interactions with our customers, and we’re equally as dedicated to giving back to the communities that have welcomed us with open arms. Our franchisees, sister companies, and network of employees is nothing short of inspirational, as is evidenced through our presence at local events and our all-hands-on-deck approach to community outreach. At Floor Coverings International®, community doesn’t just mean the neighbourhood you live in. It includes the areas in which you work, play, and encourage your family, friends, and neighbours to thrive.
Our commitment to community involvement captures the essence of who we are. We believe that by taking social responsibility, we can encourage others to want to pay it forward. And in turn, we can create communities of involvement that work together to achieve the greater good for all.
Thank you for exploring our commitment to social responsibility and for the opportunity to serve your flooring needs. We believe that together, one customer and one community at a time, we can make a difference.
CEO, Floor Coverings International®
