- Teacher Appreciation Giveaway
In 2016, in appreciation for the dedicated service of teachers to our children, Coles began an Annual Area Rug Giveaway, offering a FREE, quality, large sized area rug to hundreds of San Diego County teachers each year! What started as a small way to show appreciation for the teachers of our community while making room for new inventory, turned into a great experience for everybody involved.
4TH ANNUAL TEACHER APPRECIATION AREA RUG GIVEAWAY FOR CLASSROOMS!
In appreciation of the teachers of San Diego County for the dedicated service to our children, Coles brought back our biggest event of the year. Our fourth annual Area Rug Giveaway last Saturday, August 3rd. Teachers started lining up outside the Morena Blvd. location at 3am in hopes of getting the best selection of a FREE area rug.
Supplies were limited, but we were able to send over 700 teachers to school Monday morning with brand new, quality, large sized area rugs for their classrooms!
We would like to extend a big thank you to Anderson Tuftex and Nourison for their generous donations of hundreds of Area Rugs for our San Diego teachers this year.
3RD ANNUAL TEACHER APPRECIATION AREA RUG GIVEAWAY FOR CLASSROOMS!
President, Steve Coles and daughter Lauren Coles supporting local teachers
In 2018 ,teachers started lining up outside the Morena Blvd. location at 3am and we were able to send over 540 teachers to school Monday morning with quality, large sized area rugs for their classrooms!
Our second event in August of 2017 was another huge success. Teachers lined up early to pick out their rugs, and we also had a collection of small carpet pads to choose from for those who didn’t get rugs. Over 400 teachers left with FREE area rugs for their classrooms and the feedback we received online was amazing. Coles is happy to be a part of improving the learning environment for San Diego students.
We could never have anticipated the turn out for our first event in 2016. With teachers arriving as early as 3am and lines wrapping around the building at two locations the first weekend, we hated to turn away teachers and ended up giving away an additional 50 rugs. Week two, we added inventory to the event and gave away over 350 rugs, with a grand total of over 550 rugs throughout the event.
