On August 13, 2016, Hadinger’s held its seventh Teacher Rug Giveaway, an annual event that provides local teachers with a free rug for their classroom. “Teachers are hard-working individuals who get very little credit for what they do,” says owner Judy Hadinger. “We donate about 100 rugs each year to remind teachers that their efforts are still recognized and appreciated within their community. It takes months of planning and preparation on our end, but the response makes everything worthwhile. Teachers actually camp out in our parking lot to get a good spot in line!”
“It’s a lot of fun,” says Sr. Vice President Susan Hadinger, Judy’s daughter and former teacher herself. “We love the excitement and the fact that other local companies pitch in to help make it a great day. Starbucks has been a valued partner since the beginning; they bring a spread of coffees and teas every year … and this year, Peace, Love and Little Donuts of Naples supplied donuts for everyone.”
