Tile Partners for Humanity Coordinates Donation of Seven Trailers of Tile and Setting Materials from Coverings 2004
TPFH is a partnership between the tile industry and Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization working to eliminate substandard housing around the world. TPFH works within the industry to raise awareness of Habitat and to solicit donations of tile, installation materials, tile tools, cleaners and sealers, installation labor, and installation training for volunteers and homeowners.
"We are overwhelmed and overjoyed by the generosity of these exhibitors!" exclaimed Shirley Jones, manager of the Habitat Home Store. "This is a real win-win for us because we can put tile in the homes we build and we can sell tile to pay for new construction. We even got a donation of 29 palettes from one exhibitor - Roca/Laufen/United States Ceramic Tile Company - and I knew our ship had come in! This will benefit our community more than these wonderful exhibitors know."
TPFH is guided by seven industry organizations whose representatives sit on its board of directors, including the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association, Ceramic Tile Education Foundation, Ceramic Tile Institute of America, National Tile Contractors Association, The Tile Doctor, Tile Council of North America, and Tile Heritage Foundation.
TPFH is supported exclusively by industry donations and accepts donations of financial support for its operations and communication efforts.
