Tacoma, Wash. (August 23rd, 2016) – 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 help fund their Building Material Center (BMC) and Teacher Resource Center (TRC) programs.
The TRC donation helped to provide Pacific Northwest teachers with essential school supplies to support classroom learning.
“When families living in poverty struggle to pay rent and keep food on the table, school supplies become a luxury,” Mary Garcia, senior corporate relations director for World Vision. “When school districts are unable to help, school teachers also struggle to fill the gap. That’s where the Teacher Resource Center donations come in.”
The financial contribution from Milgard, also helped to fund the World Vision BMC Program. This provided plumbing, electrical and construction supplies for the repair and maintenance of housing and community facilities of those living in poverty.
“Milgard has a great program called MG/CAT, which stands for Matching Gift / Community Action Team. Any employee can join and actively give back to the community,” said Jeremiah Noneman, marketing director for Milgard Windows & Doors. “The World Vision donation was co-sponsored by our parent company, Masco Corporation, through a recommendation from the MG/CAT team to provide assistance to this needy charity in the greater Seattle area.”
Through these two programs, Milgard was able to assist local children and their families with essential building materials needed to ensure they are residing in a safe, warm and dry environment, as well as aid in their learning process by providing valuable school supplies.
