Auburn, Mass.–Floors & More Buying Group announced a new partnership with Habitat for Humanity. Floors & More, which is the parent company of Floors to Ceiling and Big Bob’s Outlet, will immediately begin donating excess flooring materials to Habitat for Humanity, which will then allocate the materials to their ReStore locations across the country.
ReStores can be compared to Goodwill stores, but for the construction industry. They are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell; new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. ReStores are independently owned and operated by local Habitat for Humanity organizations. Proceeds are used to help rebuild local neighborhoods and communities around the world.
“We are so excited to announce this new partnership,” said Vinnie Virga, co-CEO of Floors & More. “Supporting the good work of Habitat for Humanity meshes perfectly with our commitment to give back. This organization has helped so many people, we are honored to be able to join the important cause by contributing to their mission.”
Scott Appel, co-CEO of Floors & More, added, “I am a strong advocate of giving back. I want to thank Habitat for Humanity for creating a streamlined and efficient donation process that will allow for each and every one of our franchisees to easily donate to their cause. We are very much looking forward to the good our brand can do for families across the nation with Habitat.”
