Carpet One Ocala Stands Up to Violence in Schools
On April 20th, 2018 a shooter entered Forest High School in Ocala, FL and shot and injured another student in room 212. After this incident, this classroom became labeled The Rock Room, and has become a safe space for students at the school where they can feel loved and accepted.
The Rock Room provides school supplies, food, clothing and hygiene products for any student in need of these items.
Carpet One Floor and Home Ocala is a drop location for items being donated to the Rock Room. Items can be dropped off to the store at any time, and the store has helped promote the Rock Room so that it is always fully stocked for students in need.
