SALEM, NJ – October 3, 2017 – Residents in hurricane-ravaged areas of the United States and its territories continue to struggle to return to normal life, and Mannington continues to find ways to reach out and help them.
Last week, the company sent a $25,000 donation to Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational Christian organization that has been providing spiritual and physical aid to people around the world since 1970. Samaritan’s Purse helps meet the needs of people who are victims of natural disasters, poverty, war, and disease and operates with the mission found in the story of the Good Samaritan, “go and do likewise.”
The donation is earmarked for Hurricane Relief, and will help those in the most dire need in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. The organization last week was able to reach 1,200 households in Puerto Rico to provide plastic shelters, blankets and hygiene kits.
“In times like these, it’s our responsibility to step up and help those in need. Mannington has always talked about caring for others, and this is just one of the ways we are able to put those words into action,” said Mannington’s Chairman of the Board, Keith Campbell.
Over the past month, Mannington associates contributed $13,000 to the American Red Cross, which Mannington matched, for a total of $26,000. And the company has plans to donate flooring for the rebuilding efforts in those areas, as well.
