LAYING IT FORWARD IN 2014!
In 2014 LL Flooring supported 60 causes through its Lay It Forward program. The company donated nearly $200,000 in cash and product to advance its mission of improving communities and homes for generations to come – a vision that also drives the enduring quality and sustainability of LL Flooring's products. Installing a hardwood floor is an investment. It grows in character as an element of a home’s beauty and can last a lifetime. By supporting the Lay It Forward program today, LL Flooring believes its charitable investment will have a similar and lasting impact. The company is proud to support communities close to home & across the country! Here are some of the organizations who were part of the Lay It Forward program in 2014. Thank you to all for the chance to help!
“Giving back to the communities we serve has been a core tenet of Lumber Liquidators since our founding more than 20 years ago. I’m proud of how our Lay It Forward initiative reflects not just the generous spirit of our employees but also the quality of our products.” – Robert M. Lynch, CEO, Lumber Liquidators
