Coverings recently announced that its exhibitors donated 150 pallets and 16 crates of tile to Tile Partners for Humanity.

Coverings recently announced that its exhibitors donated 150 pallets and 16 crates of tile, enough to fill seven trailers, to Tile Partners for Humanity (TPFH), a non-profit industry partnership that provides ceramic tile and installation services to Habitat for Humanity projects across the country. A portion of the tile collected from the show will be used in the kitchens, entryways and bathrooms of Habitat for Humanity homes currently under construction in the Orlando area; the remaining tile will be sold through the Habitat Home Store in Orlando with 100% of the proceeds used to fund new Habitat for Humanity construction in Orlando. The Habitat Home Store estimates that sales of these donations will bring in a minimum of $40,000. The number of registered attendees for the recent Coverings 2004 show was 29,453 -- an increase of 10% over registered attendee figures reported by the show management company representing Coverings in 2003.

For more information on attending or exhibiting at Coverings, call (703) 683-8500 or visit http://www.coverings.com. TPFH can be reached at (770) 416-0200, e-mail ally@tpfh.com or online at http://tpfh.com.
