"I believe that no matter what I did in life, I could never have prepared enough for what I am dealing with now. I am so thankful to the FCIF for the difference they have made in my life and that of my family. Life can be good--even with Muscular Dystrophy!"
Roy Davison,
Roy's Floor Covering Service
"The foundation has given us a peace of mind that we would never have been able to attain by ourselves. It allows us not to worry so much about financial difficulty due to medical expenses, as well as expenses incurred from having a child in a hospital for any period of time. I don't know what we'd be doing without their assistance."
Lea Crooker, wife of Steve Crooker,
JDS Flooring Associate
"The foundation's help made all the difference in helping me get back on my feet. If it wasn't for the Foundation, I would be in debt for more years than I care to think about. Now I'm all caught up with my bills and back on my feet."
Douglas Beachey,
Installer, Carpet and Tile Depot
"I honestly don't know what my family and I would have done if the Floor Covering Industry Foundation was not there to help; we would have lost our house for sure. They gave us shelter and food and paid the hospital bills. They helped with everything!"
Gary Mount, Mohawk Industries
