AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Carpet Tech launched its annual Give Back Week earlier this month which is aimed at assisting those in need within the community.
“At Carpet Tech, giving back is a fundamental value of our culture. We want to show the community that we care about each location we serve,” said Carpet Tech operations officer Stephanie Henderson.
Officials detailed that this week, the office staff at Carpet Tech locations will donate supplies, serve food, and give proceeds to those in need.
“We designed Give Back week to touch people in need. Our goal is to show love and compassion to those who need it most this time of year by giving back,” Henderson said.
Carpet Tech, officials noted, will serve Lubbock, Permian Basin, Amarillo, Clovis, and the McKinney/Prosper/Plano/Frisco communities during Give Back Week.
On Friday, Carpet Tech delivered meals to people at at The PARC, located at 413 6th Ave.
Theo McGee, Carpet Tech’s business development manager, said they delivered several trays of tacos from Rosa’s Cafe, as well as supplies from Sam’s to help the PARC continue its mission of taking care of Amarillo’s population.
“It is so important to be part of this community and to take care of those people that are forgotten people,” said McGee. “It’s nice to see that the efforts that are made are actually making a difference in people’s lives. There’s a lot of people that don’t have what we have and we have to remember that we’re very fortunate for those of us that do have things so. Just being able to see a smile on someone’s face or be able to know that you helped somebody having a meal that day, it’s very important.”
“Our passion is serving people, which means more than cleaning carpets,” Henderson said. “Carpet Tech has always been committed to giving in a big way, and we are excited about the unprecedented efforts by our entire company to make a bigger impact than ever before during this special week.”
