In the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma we plan to work closely with hurricane relief organizations and impacted customers and retailers to aid in the cleanup and rebuilding efforts in the coming months.
We have opened each of our three US-based corporate showrooms and distribution centers to the public to receive both goods and monetary donations for the Houston Food Bank and the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services, and will accept monetary donations for the United Way of the Florida Keys, through October 31. Donations may be dropped Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. Wish lists of desired goods may be found on each organization's website.
In addition to the donation drive, our hurricane relief program also includes assisting our customers who have been affected by these natural disasters. We are offering free freight to our customers in Texas and Florida through October 31. We are in the process of reaching out to our dealers and customers throughout these states to assess showroom and/or product damage.
“At Karndean Designflooring, ‘people matter’ is one of our core values,” CEO Larry Browder said. “After watching the devastation unfold in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean, we feel compelled to provide support to our customers, retail partners and residents in those areas in any way that we can.”
Karndean employees are sharing in the giving spirit as well by participating in the donation drive, basket raffles and monetary donations. We will be matching employee gifts dollar for dollar through the duration of the donation drive.
Our thoughts are with all those whose lives have been affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. It is our hope that these donations can provide comfort during this difficult time.
