FCIF’s “One Day to Give” is September 7

The Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) is hosting “One Day to Give,” a 24-hour online fundraising drive, on Thursday, September 7. One Day to Give unites the floor covering industry to make a lasting impact on families faced with unexpected medical battles who need help getting back on their feet. FCIF is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit that has been assisting floor covering workers and their families since 1981. The organization provides a way for the industry to take care of its own by providing financial assistance grants to those who are struggling with severe illnesses, injuries, and disabilities.

In 2022 alone, FCIF provided 54 grants to families in the floorcovering industry, awarding more than $500,000 to help with doctor’s visits, surgeries, medical equipment, prescriptions, and also basic needs such as mortgage, rent, utilities, and food.

To participate in One Day to Give, FCIF offers multiple ways to make an impact:

“We are very excited to hold our second annual One Day to Give at FCIF,” shared Andrea Blackbourn, the organization’s executive director. “This unique fundraising event allows individuals and businesses in the flooring community to get involved and impact our co-workers in profound ways. Giving is such a personal choice. We are thankful for each individual and company who gives, no matter the amount.”
