Businesses Giving Back
Each year, THCF recognizes a corporate citizen whose generosity in charitable giving tremendously impacts the region we serve. Our community is a generous one and we consider it a privilege to recognize those companies whose philanthropy makes our community a better place to live and serve.
Our 2018 Corporate Citizen of the Year is Tingle Flooring.
Tingle Flooring, with offices in Lee’s Summit, St. Louis and Denver, is the Midwest’s premier wholesale floor covering distributor. Owners Chip and Debra Moxley have called Eastern Jackson County home for more than 30 years and have used the success of their business to give back to the community. Since moving their Kansas City headquarters to Lee’s Summit, the company’s leaders have been active supporters through corporate giving and volunteerism.
As President of Tingle Flooring, Chip is involved with several community initiatives and local nonprofits in Lee’s Summit. These include serving on the Board of Directors for John Knox Village, St. Luke’s East Hospital, Velocity Lee’s Summit (where Chip mentors new entrepreneurs), the Steering Committee for R-7 Business Roundtable, and Lee’s Summit Education Foundation (where Chip emceed the Taste of Lee’s Summit event for three years). Tingle Flooring’s support of the Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce is a family affair. As Vice-President of Tingle Flooring, Lauren Johnson, daughter of Chip and Debra, was in the Leadership Lee’s Summit class and currently serves on the board of directors. In addition, the organization offers space to host local nonprofit events.
Their giving goes beyond personal involvement. They also give back with product, often working with Habitat for Humanity to hand-deliver products to build sites. Tingle Flooring sets an example by promoting volunteerism. The Moxley’s believe they have received more from their philanthropy than they have given. Their involvement and passion comes from a desire to impact the community where they live.
