TLC Carpet One helps build homes for veterans
TLC Carpet One Floor & Home and flooring has worked with manufacturer Mohawk for two years, helping build Smart Homes for catastrophically injured veterans by providing flooring and installation, according to a news release.
As part of the Carpet One Floor & Home cooperative, TLC has helped build 18 homes for America’s Bravest, and 18 more are already in progress.
The smart homes built by the foundation through its Building for America’s Bravest program are custom designed to fit the needs of each individual. The goal of each new home is to help severely injured heroes have a better quality of life and regain their independence. The homes are designed to be energy efficient, automated and easily accessible.
Carpet One Floor & Home stores in Colorado have teamed up with other locally owned stores across the nation to raise funds, spread the word and install floors in all homes built by the Building for America’s Bravest program.
Recently, TLC Carpet One Floor & Home added a way for customers to get involved in supporting the program by making a donation. Every donation – even $10 – makes a difference in helping to build homes for the long list of catastrophically injured veterans. Donations can be made by visiting a local Carpet One Floor & Home store.
