Our number one community outreach program over the past 10 years has been delivering flowers to area nursing homes in each one of the communities we operate within. Our employees and managers personally hand-deliver bouquets to every resident at different selected nursing homes several times a year for major holidays, like Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and often on a random Wednesday or Thursday for no reason at all.

In April 2007, Rug & Home pledged $100,000 to Four Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care in Hendersonville, which they used to establish an endowment fund for their palliative care program. Palliative care, unlike hospice, focuses on relieving and preventing the suffering of patients undergoing treatment for chronic or curable diseases. Palliative care, similarly to hospice, uses a multidisciplinary approach to patient care to address not only the physical ailments that come with terminal illness, but also the emotional, spiritual and social concerns that patients may be facing.

Vision Express

While they attribute their success to hard work in the “Land of Opportunity,” the Rug & Home founders have not forgotten their roots in India – each year, they organize a humanitarian trip to India for a 3-day health clinic in remote villages in the rug-weaving region of eastern Uttar Pradesh where there is little to no access to healthcare. Through these health clinics, they realized that the population most neglected in terms of health is women, and the number one ailment facing many of these underprivileged women is cataracts.

The Dadawas Initiative is a rural poverty eradication project by the Society for Excellence in Education. The Dadawas Institute was started by Sagar Jain, a former professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dadawas’ goal is to conquer poverty through education for children living in the rural village of Dadawas in the state of Haryana in India. By providing underprivileged youth with basic health and sanitation services and education, along with a school that fosters learning and enrollment in a rural community where education is secondary to basic needs like food and shelter, Dadawas is hoping to help the poor reach middle class, within the span of one generation.
