July 1, 2021 – July of 2021 marks the beginning of an even better partnership between the UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital and Randy’s Flooring of Coralville and Cedar Rapids. Randy’s Flooring has teamed up with Shaw Floors to increase our donation to the Children’s Hospital. For every square foot of Shaw Find Your Comfort carpet and Comfort-Gel cushion sold, ten cents will be donated to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital in Iowa City, Iowa.



Since beginning our partnership in July 2018, Randy’s Flooring has donated over $45,000 to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. We have committed a new goal to donate a total of $150,000 over five years. For every square foot of Shaw Find Your Comfort carpet and Comfort-Gel cushion sold, ten cents will be donated to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.



Randy’s Flooring offers the largest selection of flooring in Eastern Iowa but we have made it easy to choose a better carpet and cushion while helping children in our community. The Shaw Find Your Comfort carpet is showcased on a convenient Color Wall that displays on-trend options. Each color or style on the wall is an option for our 5 cent per square foot donation and when it is paired with the Comfort-Gel cushion, another 5 cents will be donated for every square foot sold.
