When we think about the approaching holidays, visions of family gatherings, festive meals, trimmed trees, and wrapped gifts come to mind. But we all know this Christmas vision is not the same for everyone in our community. That’s why we have so many local individuals, businesses, and nonprofits working together to make the season special for everyone, especially the children.
Carpet Tech, a long-time local floorcare, disinfecting, and restoration company, is synonymous with community give-back projects, especially this time of year. This year marks Carpet Tech’s 18th annual BOGO Holiday Toy Drive, benefitting the children at Buckner Lubbock, Midland, and Amarillo as well as CASA of Collin County and Matt 25 Hope Center in Clovis, NM. For nearly two decades, Carpet Tech has offered our customers a free room of carpet cleaning with the purchase of another in exchange for a new, unwrapped toy for a local child in need.
“Everybody gets a gift during our annual holiday toy drive,” said Carpet Tech owner Melinda Pharies. “Our customers really look forward to the opportunity to get their home ready for holiday company at a buy one get one discount and feel good about helping make a child’s Christmas a little brighter.”
“These gifts offer a bit of Christmas magic for children who have not always or sometimes ever had this experience on Christmas morning,” said Pharies.
Since the inception of Carpet Tech’s Annual BOGO Toy Drive, Pharies says Carpet Tech customers have donated thousands of new, unwrapped toys, each year giving more than the last.
Carpet Tech’s BOGO Holiday Toy Drive runs from November 8th through December 18th, 2021. Customers can call Carpet Tech at 888-343-9650 or book an appointment online to schedule a BOGO carpet cleaning with their toy donation. Carpet Tech technicians will take toy donations when they come to clean.
“We would not be able to give back to Bucker each year if it weren’t for our customers,” said Pharies. “Thank you for supporting Carpet Tech and helping us serve each other so well.”
