I know I haven’t posted much lately. To be honest, until I retire, I won’t be posting much here because my opinion isn’t welcome in the military and I’m tired of constantly fighting for the right to express it. However, from time to time, I come across something I MUST share that wouldn’t be deemed “constroverial” or political in nature.

Flooring America, a division of CCA Global Partners the nation’s largest floor covering cooperative, continues to show its support for Pets for Patriots, a national nonprofit that delivers the healing power of at-risk shelter pets to veteran and current service members of the United States military, with the launch of its patriotic door mats where a 100% of the proceeds go directly to Pets for Patriots. Making a great holiday gift, the door mats will be sold online at the Pets for Patriots Holiday Store.

“We’re thrilled to join our partner Flooring America in the launch of these patriotic door mats, just in time for the holidays,” says Beth Zimmerman, founder and executive director of Pets for Patriots. “Through this partnership and the efforts of hundreds of individual store owners across the country, we’re able to share our mission with people who are looking for ways to support businesses that care about the same things that they do.”

Flooring America teamed up with Pets for Patriots because the organization’s mission is well-aligned with the core values of its more than 550 independent retailers—a commitment to community, patriotism and giving back to those who served our country.

“I am incredibly proud of our partnership with Pets for Patriots. The launch of the patriotic door mats program is just another way in which Flooring America members and customers can give back to an incredible organization as well as to our service men and women“, said Frank Chiera, Vice President of Marketing and Advertising at Flooring America.

To date, Flooring America has raised nearly $75,000 for the organization with the support of its members and customers. The company’s goal is to raise more than $250,000 for Pets for Patriots.
