TLC Carpet One continues to help returning heroes

Flooring retailer, TLC Carpet One Floor & Home continues to support the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers’ Building for America’s Bravest program in its effort to build specially-adapted “smart homes” for catastrophically injured service members.

Building for America’s Bravest was developed with the goal of offering America’s returning heroes the opportunity to live better, more independent lives.

Each smart home is built to be energy-efficient, automated and easily accessible, with customized features to suit the needs of the individual recipient. For three years, Carpet One Floor & Home has provided the flooring installation for every smart home built, while partner company Mohawk Industries has provided the floors.

“In partnering with Carpet One Floor & Home, we knew that we’d be supported by passionate, local business owners with the knowledge and experience necessary to produce beautiful, quality floors suited to the needs of each individual,” Frank Siller, chairman and CEO of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, said in a statement. “Their efforts have made a significant difference in the lives of many heroes over the last three years.”

Across the nation, Carpet One Floor & Home stores have come together with other local businesses to help build smart homes for catastrophically-injured heroes returning home to their communities. To date, the company has provided the flooring and installation for 26 smart homes, with five currently in progress. Together with Mohawk, their three-year commitment to the construction of smart homes will total $2.3 million dollars in contributions.
