FCIF Readies for ‘One Day to Give’ Fundraiser on Sept. 7

The Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) is hosting “One Day to Give,” a 24-hour online fundraising drive, on Thursday, Sept. 7. The event aims to make a lasting impact on families faced with unexpected medical battles who need help getting back on their feet.

FCIF is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit that has been assisting floor covering workers and their families since 1981. The organization provides a way for the industry to “take care of its own” by providing financial assistance grants to those who are struggling with severe illnesses, injuries and disabilities.

In 2022 alone, FCIF provided 54 grants to families in the floorcovering industry, awarding over $500,000 to help with doctor’s visits, surgeries, medical equipment, prescriptions and basic needs such as mortgage, rent, utilities and food.

To participate in One Day to Give, FCIF offers multiple ways to make an impact:

“We are very excited to hold our 2nd annual One Day to Give at FCIF,” shared Andrea Blackbourn, the organization’s executive director. “This unique fundraising event allows individuals and businesses in the flooring community to get involved and impact our co-workers in profound ways. We are thankful for each individual and company who gives, no matter the amount.”

The success of One Day to Give relies on participants pushing out the campaign to their personal social networks to build momentum and gather support. To host your own campaign, reach out to Blackbourn at ablackbourn@fcif.org or download the One Day to Give digital toolkit.
