Back in August, our client, Carpetland USA Flooring Center, announced The Carpetland $10,000 Flooring Makeover for Charity. The company’s latest in a long line of charitable endeavors asked participants to enter a drawing. Two winners would each receive $2,500 of new flooring and $2,500 for their favorite animal charity – a total giveaway of $10,000!
“We get hundreds of calls asking if we offer environmental and pet-friendly flooring, and although the winners can choose the type of flooring they want, we assume that many participants will be pet owners. Our flooring makeover for charity is a win-win situation. We can contribute pet-friendly flooring to pet owners and donate pet-friendly flooring to our local animal charity at the same time,” Dave Brown, owner and President of Carpetland USA Milwaukee, Inc.
The contest ran from August 15, 2019, through October 15, 2019, and had thousands of entries. The drawing was held on November 1st, 2019, and on November 6th, the winners received their prizes. Congratulations to Patricia Cooper and Heidi Grassberger and their respective charities, Lakeland Animal Shelter and Canine Cupids. Black Raven Media was honored to be there! See the video below!
“I was extremely excited to find out I won because I never win anything! And, our house is 22 years old and is starting to be in need of new flooring. I picked Lakeland Animal Shelter because that’s where we had adopted our two cats from.” Patricia Cooper, Winner
“I was so very happy. I’ve been volunteering with Canine Cupids for seven or eight years now. And, we really, really need the money for expenses for our foster dogs and medical expenses, training expenses, and just support for them while they’re in their foster homes waiting for their forever homes.” Heidi Grassberger, Winner
Supporting the community isn’t new to Carpetland Flooring. Locally owned and operated, both the owners and employees have engaged in many charitable endeavors throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Carpetland has always been an advocate for local charities from sponsoring the American Heart Walk and The Hunger Task Force to various Police K-9 Foundations to Children’s Hospital and The Professional Firefighters of Wisconsin for burn-injured youth.
“We have always believed in giving back to the community who help support our business,” noted Brown. “These non-profits do so much for our community, but they need help and support to maintain and advance their mission, and that’s why we continue to show our support,” Brown added.
