Milgard and HomeAid Partner to Get People Back on their Feet
April 22, 2016
Milgard® Windows & Doors announces their partnership with HomeAid, a leading national non-profit provider of housing for homeless families and individuals in 11 states across the country.
The partnership consists of window donations supporting five upcoming projects located in Portland, Sacramento, Denver, and Orange County, California areas. The product donations help reduce construction costs for the builders that develop HomeAid homeless housing projects in 2016 that serve women, children, families and returning veterans.
This is the second year Milgard has worked with HomeAid. The first project was for HomeAid Portland and Service Provider, Yamhill Community Action Partnership, contributing 22 windows to Harvest House, a facility that serves homeless families and single women.
“In the United States, more than 3.5 million people experience homelessness each year. As we work with HomeAid by donating Milgard window products we are making an effort to help alleviate homelessness in our local communities,” said Jeremiah Noneman, marketing director for Milgard Windows & Doors.
“Our new national partnership with Milgard Windows & Doors will be a huge benefit to HomeAid by allowing us to build housing for homeless service providers at lower costs,” said Peter Simons, CEO of HomeAid America. “The extremely generous donation of in-kind windows this year will allow these incredible charities to preserve capital to use on programs to get the situationally homeless back on their feet, which is what HomeAid is all about.”
