FLINT — On July 2 at 1 p.m., representatives from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization established in memory of a fallen 9/11 firefighter, will pay a special visit to Dick Skaff and the staff of Skaff Furniture Carpet One in Flint, to personally thank Skaff for their generous support of the Foundation’s Building for America’s Bravest (BFAB)
The BFAB program builds hi-tech “smart homes” for service members returning from war who have been catastrophically injured.
Carpet One Floor & Home and its manufacturing partner Mohawk have committed to providing flooring materials and installation for 46 of these “smart homes.” Each store’s customers are invited to share information about the program with others and make a personal contribution at the store site.
The goal is to collect a donation of $10 — or more — from each customer to ultimately enable the building of at least two more “smart homes.”
“We felt strongly about the initiative,” said Dick Skaff, President of Skaff Furniture Carpet One, “and we are doing our best to get the word out. In recognition of that support, members of the FDNY (Fire Department of New York City) will present a specially-designed shadowbox containing hallowed 9/11 steel from Ground Zero to Dick Skaff and the Skaff team on July 2, at 1 p.m. — G.G.
