Milgard Builds 50 Bikes for 50 Years

TACOMA, Wash. (February 16, 2012) - In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Milgard Windows & Doors, members of the Milgard Executive Management team built 50 brand new bikes for kids at their annual meeting on January 18th.

Barb Motley, HR Manager and organizer of the bike building event says that one goal of the event was to make it a team building event for the managers, "...but the kids are the real winners." The bikes were delivered on January 26th to the Helping Hand House, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Pierce County and the Sheridan Elementary School in Tacoma.

This MG/CAT (Matching Gift/Community Action Team) event is part of the Milgard commitment in giving back to the community. All employees at Milgard are involved in a variety of events and take great pride in making a difference in their communities.

This event is just the first of many that Milgard plans for their 50th Anniversary in 2012 through their MG/CAT (Matching Gift/Community Action Team) employee volunteer program. All MG/CAT events benefit local charities.
