Transition House of Santa Barbara Chosen as Beneficiary in Carpet Giveaway Contest

Transition House is thrilled to be in the running and is now seeking the community’s assistance to spread the word and help them collect as many votes as possible between the start of the contest on April 9th, and its end date on May 20th.

The nationwide contest, which takes place online, asks community members to vote on behalf of their local charity, their Flooring America store, and their community. Should Transition House and Andros Floor Design rally the most support, Transition House will get a big boost in the form of flooring.

“We’re really excited about the potential of new Stainmaster carpeting,” says Kathleen Baushke, Executive Director of Transition House. “We’re planning to use the carpeting in our some of our apartment buildings and offices, and we really need it because it has been years since our flooring has been upgraded.”

The event comes as part of Stainmaster’s effort to salute small business owners and the communities they serve. As local economies have become a larger part of the national conversation, Stainmaster has chosen to recognize the efforts of locally owned and operated Flooring America and Flooring Canada stores, like Andros Floor Design, as well as the ever-important work of community charities and non-profits.

“This giveaway amounts to a lot more than new flooring,” says Kathleen. “It enables us to spend money we were planning to use for renovations on our program services for homeless families. We’re really excited about it, and we hope the community will go online and vote for us!”
