Reminder: FCIF Fundraiser Scheduled for Tomorrow

As previously reported, the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) will be launching its inaugural “One Day to Give,” a 24-hour online fundraising drive, tomorrow. According to organizers, One Day to Give was created “for the floor covering industry to make a lasting impact on families faced with unexpected medical battles who need help getting back on their feet.”

Andrea Blackbourn, the organization’s executive director, stated, “This unique fundraising event allows individuals and businesses in the flooring community to get involved and impact our co-workers in profound ways. Giving is such a personal choice. We are thankful for each individual and company who gives, no matter the amount.”

In 2021 alone, FCIF provided 51 grants to families in the floorcovering industry, awarding nearly $600,000 to help with doctor’s visits, surgeries, medical equipment, prescriptions, and also basic needs such as mortgage, rent, utilities and food.

Beneficiaries included:

  • a creeler with invasive stage 4 breast cancer that has spread to her bones
  • a flooring installer and his teenage daughter who are both battling leukemia
  • a lift-truck operator who had part of his foot amputated
  • a sales manager whose husband has lung cancer and a brain tumor
  • a shipping clerk whose 3-year-old daughter is deaf and has developmental delays requiring special therapy

 

FCIF offers several ways to participate in One Day to Give:
