Loews Carpet One Floor and Home continues support for breast cancer research and awareness

Thursday, September 20, 2007

Loews Carpet One Floor and Home will continue its ongoing support for breast cancer research and awareness this October with the Fall 2007 Carpet One Floor and Home Welcomes Your Support event. In partnership with other Carpet One Floor and Home locations throughout North America, Loews Carpet One Floor and Home will raise funds through sales of their exclusive pink ribbon welcome mats. Twenty-five percent of U.S. sales will go the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Loews Carpet One Floor and Home is happy to announce that the nationwide event has now raised more than $500,000 to support breast cancer awareness and research since it began in 2004. The new fall and winter collection features colors and themes of the season and designs that make perfect housewarming or holiday gifts.

"We are so proud to be part of a nationwide campaign that is dedicated to supporting breast cancer awareness and research," said Jeff Loews of Loews Carpet One Floor and Home. "This is a cause that affects our families, friends, customers and communities. We look forward to raising funds for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation again this fall and winter."

"We are truly thankful for Carpet One Floor and Home's ongoing commitment to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation," Myra Biblowit, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation President said. "Maintaining strong partnerships with socially responsible organizations allows us to continue to raise funds for breast cancer research and awareness in hopes of eradicating this disease within our lifetime."

This past spring, Carpet One Floor and Home launched the Design for Pink contest, in partnership with Country Living magazine. The company invited U.S. consumers to enter their original welcome mat designs to be included in the fall 2007 collection. This year's winner is Brittany Hammel from Denton, TX. Brittany's mat, Wild Flowers, features pink flowers surrounding the world "Welcome" on a green background. This year's collection will include: Tickled Pink, Holiday Bloom, Arctic Trio, All Wrapped Up, Paw Prints, Welcome Hope, Let it Snow, Pumpkin Patch, Holiday Treat and Autumn Branches.

Loew's Carpet One Floor and Home's indoor/outdoor welcome mats are extremely durable, stain and water resistant and machine washable. The welcome mats are available, beginning in October, for national breast cancer awareness month, and through November and December for approximately $21.99 each. Twenty-five percent of the sale of each welcome mat will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
