Tacoma, Wash. (Aug 1st, 2017) – Milgard Windows & Doors provided a $25,000 donation to World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children and families tackling poverty and injustice, to support their Teacher Resource Center (TRC) program.
Over 32 school districts in the Pacific Northwest are served by the World Vision TRC program. Essential school supplies, such as backpacks, notebooks, binders, pencils, scissors and glue, are provided to the local area teachers to support poverty stricken students whose families are unable to purchase these necessities on their own.

“World Vision is near and dear to me because of their far reaching support of the neediest in our community and the world,” said Kim Mauro, Executive Assistant at Milgard. “World Vision is a great partnership for Milgard since they share our value of taking care of the less fortunate in Pierce County.”
“World Vision is so thankful for partners like Milgard who are invested in their local communities,” said Reed Slattery, National GIK Program Director for World Vision. “This amazing donation will allow us to provide thousands of teachers and students with much needed school supplies right here in Pierce and King Counties.”
This donation helps to lay the groundwork for success in the classroom at a local level. The children now have the opportunity to focus more on learning and less on securing the tools they need at school on a daily basis.
