Several key tile industry business recently filled donation requests from Tile Partners for Humanity (TPFH) including Jaeckle Distributors, RBC Tile, Tile by Design, Virginia Tile and Arizona Tile.
Answering a call for areas in Wisconsin and Minnesota were:
Jaeckle Distributors (donated to LaCrosse Habitat); RBC Tile (donated to the
St. Croix Valley Habitat); and Tile by Design donated to the Rochester Habitat.
Additionally, long-time TPFH supporters at Virginia Tile
met the tile needs of a handicapped shower for a Greater Jackson (MI) Habitat home.
Further, Arizona Tile donated material for use
in Baja-based The House of Children Mission (HCM). According to TPFH, “Over the
last seven years, Arizona Tile has never said no when asked for donations
of floor coverings.” “The kindness from this company is outstanding to say
the least. It is a joy to have such kind folks from Arizona Tile helping with the
many projects in our work with the children of Mexico. God has blessed this
company because of the blessings they freely give to those in need," says
Richard Hytinen of HCM.
TPFH also reports that it has fulfilled its
five-year, $2.5M pledge of material donations to Habitat for Humanity three
years early. “In keeping with our continued commitment to
support Habitat for Humanity, TPFH has made a new five-year pledge of $5M,”
