As a fourth generation, family-owned business, we feel a responsibility to help those around us. To make our communities safe, and help them thrive so that our children and grandchildren can experience the same joys of childhood that we did.
Our associates are actively involved in large national charities like United Way, Boys and Girls Clubs, and American Red Cross, but we also give close to home. Here are just a few of the ways that Mannington associates are making a difference:
Stand On A Better World Awards: A program that honors ‘ordinary women who do extraordinary things’. The program ran successfully for three years, and is on hiatus. Check back here in the fall to find out more about the program for 2012.
