Wichita carpet store to give away more than 500 free rugs to teachers

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) A Wichita carpet store will be giving away more than 500 free rugs to local teachers.

The one day event takes place Saturday, August 4, beginning at 9 a.m.at Jabara's located at 1816 N Broadway St.

"During the back to school time in August teachers are always trying to get their rooms put back together and we are trying to find a way to give back to the community and we have a lot of remnants so we thought giving away carpet would be a good idea," says Jason Jabara.

The store will be giving away one rug per teacher as long as supplies last.

Teachers must be present on the day of the event with a current, valid teacher ID to receive a rug. They are made from carpet remnants and will vary in size and color.

Refreshments will be served, and there will be a raffle for the chance to win prizes.
