Manchester, NH (PRWEB) April 11, 2012
From April 9th to May 20th, local communities will take center-stage in the “Improve Your Home, Improve Your Hometown” contest, sponsored by Flooring America, Flooring Canada and Stainmaster® carpet. The contest, which takes place online, asks the public to vote on behalf of their local Flooring America or Flooring Canada store, their community and the store’s pre-selected charity. The store that rallies the most support and collects the winning number of votes will receive a $10,000 Stainmaster carpet donation, which they will then donate to their charity partner.
The event comes as part of Stainmaster’s effort to salute small business owners and the communities they serve. As local economies have become a larger part of the national conversation, the international brand has chosen to recognize the efforts of locally owned and operated Flooring America and Flooring Canada stores, as well as the ever-important work of community charities and non-profits.
In addition to the $10,000 carpet donation, many Flooring America and Flooring Canada stores have committed to making a donation to their local charity or non profit whether they win the contest or not. Participating Flooring America and Flooring Canada stores will donate $1 for every 100 square feet of carpet sold during the promotional time period to the charity partner they have chosen.
Participating stores will also offer Free Labor on Stainmaster carpet purchases during the Improve Your Home, Improve Your Hometown contest, with the hopes that the Free Labor promotion will encourage carpet buyers to choose Stainmaster, and thereby add to the stores’ charitable contributions.
