Teacher Appreciation Free Rug Giveaway

Each year our company, Airbase Lomax Carpet & Tile Mart, looks for ways to give back to our local communities.  We are very excited that we can once again honor our local teachers this year with a back-to-school “Teacher Appreciation FREE Rug Giveaway”.  We will provide a FREE classroom area rug to the first 50 teachers who visit one of the chain’s Flooring Superstores on Saturday, August 24th 2019 beginning at 8am.


“We appreciate the incredible value teachers bring to each of our local communities and are grateful for the contribution they tirelessly make, day in and day out, to educate and shape our future neighbors and community members,” said Michael Longwill, Airbase Lomax Carpet & Tile Mart President, and 3rd generation Owner/Operator of the family owned company. “We’re thrilled to have an opportunity to give back to these classroom heroes through our Free Rug Giveaway, just in time for the back-to-school season.

To receive a FREE rug, teachers, must appear in person between 8AM and 10AM (or while supplies last) on Saturday, August 24th, 2019 at any of the 12 Airbase Lomax Carpet & Tile Mart Flooring Superstore locations and present a valid teacher ID. Rugs to be given away are large size, quality rugs and will be limited to a maximum of 50 per store location. They will vary by color, style and size, from approximately 6’x9’ to 9’x12’; with retail values up to $200 per rug. There is no purchase necessary to qualify for a FREE Rug.

As with our event last year, you must take the rug with you so please make sure you have the means to take your offer away. Here is a look at last years event throughout all of our locations. We look forward to meeting all of the teachers that are able to make it out on Saturday, August 24, 2019 between 8AM – 10AM.

Here are a couple of classroom photos that the teachers who received rugs sent to us. We are so happy to be able to help and provide for them!

    1. Hi Shy – Our teacher appreciation event is on Saturday, August 24th. It begins at 8am and we recommend arriving early to secure one of the 50 spots for a free rug. Thank you for everything that you do for the kids!

  7. Hi my name is Mrs. Duncan, I am a Kindergarten teacher, and you know as kindergarten teachers we are always on the floor with our kids. I feel I speak for all teacher across the board, thank you for thanking for the lives that we impacts. I see that the carpet give away is on a Saturday, that so unfortunate for me and other who religious day is on Saturday and we can not attend because of religious reason. Will you be doing the next day, Sunday, or is it just for that Saturday, no exception?
    If no, exceptions, thank you for thinking of us. There are times we feel others forget that we help form the world … by opening the minds of our children, our future.

    1. Mrs. Duncan, thank you for everything that you do to impact the lives of the children that you teach. Our event is a one day event so we will only have Saturday, August 24th to offer the free rugs to qualifies teachers. We are sorry to hear that you will be unable to make the event. We do appreciate everything that you do.

  8. Does it have to be teachers or do Educational Paraprofessionals count too? I’d love to get a new area rug for our Sensory Room, and the teacher for our Life Skills room would probably want one for our classroom as well…

  9. Our district made Teachers take all personal rugs home. It’s a liability. But this is such a great thing that you are doing. 🙂
