Columbo’s is turning 30 this year and we decided to give back in a major way! For an entire week in August we were able to gift local educators with free carpet remnants for their classrooms. Over 125 teachers visited our warehouse to pick out a rug or carpet squares to make their classrooms warm and inviting. In total, we were able to gift over 12,000 square feet of carpet to local classrooms. Talk about a whole lot of coziness!
We value the local community and understand the challenges that many teachers face with purchasing supplies for their classrooms. “We take a lot of pride in supporting our community and we had a blast offering this gift to our beloved educators. I personally know several teachers and can attest to their need for classroom supplies,” says Columbo’s showroom manager, Shay Hawkins.
In addition, we allowed each attendee to be entered to win a pizza party for their class. We are looking forward to bringing smiles to the kiddos in a kindergarten Spanish immersion class at the Jenison Public School- Kids First.
We want to thank our community for continuing to choose local when they make purchases for their homes. We are blessed to have been anchored here in Jenison for 30 years and counting!
