In an effort to highlight its commitment to corporate social responsibility as well as engage the design community, J+J Flooring is hosting its annual Helping Hands program again in 2022, now its sixth edition.
Helping Hands offers designers and flooring professionals the opportunity to give back to the community by participating in a holiday tree-decorating challenge for local children’s hospitals. Participants adorn trees based on children’s selected themes which are then donated to children’s hospitals across the nation.
Engaging the Design Community for a Good Cause
This year, Helping Hands will take place in Atlanta, Birmingham, Ala., Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Nashville. The benevolent effort allows J+J Flooring to highlight its commitment to corporate social responsibility as well as engage the design community.
Winning design teams accompany local J+J Flooring representatives to the hospitals for delivery of the trees. Designers are encouraged to incorporate toys and games in the tree decorations to be repurposed for continued use beyond the holiday season.
Overall, participating in the charitable program helps design professionals connect with and support their local communities. “Helping Hands is one more way that our firm can support Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and their mission to make kids better today and healthier tomorrow,” noted program participant Jennifer Treter, managing principal of Atlanta-based design firm Hendrick. “We are grateful to bring holiday cheer to kids and families, and appreciate our partnership with both J+J and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.”
