Building for America's Bravest
America’s Bravest selflessly risk it all. And when some are catastrophically injured, the home they come back to often doesn’t feel much like home anymore. That is why we are proud to be working with our coop, Carpet One, and other partners to provide custom-designed smart homes that allow these returning heroes to live more independently, improving the quality of their daily lives.
Mercer Carpet One Floor & Home is holding a fundraiser to support Building for America's Bravest, as we are helping with the home going up in Gaithersburg, MD for a local Army Sergeant of the 82nd Airborn whose life was changed when he stepped on a pressure-plate IUD during his tour in Afghanistan. Despite extreme injuries, the Sergeant still serves active duty. We have volunteered to install all of their new floors and provide the necessary installation materials. Throughout the year we will also be organizing various fundraisers to assist with this specific project and others.
e are donating the proceeds from stock rug sales with a minimum suggested donation amount of $2/sf. Our selection includes over 125 rugs and runners to selection from that range 2x3 to 12x12.
In addition, any new projects now through April 18th, we will donate $10 for every $1000 sold. You have the option to match our donation, which we will then raise our donation by another $10. We are accepting cash and check donations, checks can be made out to Mercer Carpet One Floor & Home.
Our goal is to raise at least $16,000.00 for this project though we’re shooting for $20,000.00. We've already raised over $4,000 of a $16,000 goal within 6 weeks time! Anything we raise in excess of that will be donated to the Building for America’s Bravest foundation to help with other custom homes for our heroes. When the call came, these brave service members went. They made extraordinary sacrifices in our place. Please help give them a home they can come home to. Your donation will make a real difference in a service hero’s life.
