Food Pantry Collection at the Door Store and Windows

Door Store and Windows is proud to be supporting the efforts of a local institution, Redeemer Lutheran Church. Redeemer Lutheran has been located on

River Park Drive in the Shawnee neighborhood since the 1950s and has a robust community ministry program. In addition to offering a yearly community street and health fair, an annual giveaway of warm clothing, and offering monthly HIV testing through the Health Department, Redeemer Lutheran also operates a Food Pantry.

On the fourth Wednesday of each month, the church Food Pantry is open from 8:00am to 11:00am. Volunteers distribute bags of food to about 150 families, with each bag containing enough food for about six meals. Over the course of one year, the Food Pantry may distribute tens of thousands of meals to community members.

This year, Door Store and Windows wanted to be even more hands-on and involved with the great work that Redeemer is doing in the community. From November through January, our wonderful staff will be volunteering their time to the Food Pantry, and we will also be taking up food collection for upcoming pantries.

If you’d like to make a donation for January’s food bag, we are in need of:

  • Boxes of tissues
  • Cans of tuna
  • Hamburger or tuna helper

Please drop off any donations by Friday, January 17 at Door Store and Window’s Showroom at 4625 Shelbyville Rd, Louisville, KY 40207 during regular hours:

Showroom Hours:

  • Monday – Thursday: 9am – 6 pm

Thanks for Helping us Support Dogs Helping Heroes

We love supporting our community whenever we can. Each year we work with a number of organizations donating our time or money to a cause that is close to our hearts. This year we have had the great pleasure of working with Dogs Helping Heroes (DHH) on two separate promotions. As we learned more about the organization and the incredible heroes they support, we became more and more passionate about their mission. Our goal was to raise the $4,500 required to train a new service dog for a deserving veteran.

As many of you know, in June we worked with WHAS11 to raise awareness for our promotion to donate $11 of every door and window sale to DHH. During this event we got pretty close to our goal, but we weren’t done yet!

In September, we had the opportunity to host an event promoting DHH in our showroom. We worked with Duffy’s Dog Training to conduct dog training demonstrations during the event. These demonstrations allowed patrons to see the time and energy that goes into training a dog for a deserving veteran. Food for the event was provided by Mission BBQ, an avid DHH supporter, and the Cheddar Box. Anyone attending this event had the opportunity to enter a drawing to win a golden retriever door knocker. James Day, one of the heroes working with DHH, was the lucky winner! Thanks to everyone who came out to support DHH. We reached our goal and DHH can now train a brand new service dog!

“The money you raised will absolutely fund a service dog for a hero! Thank you for the beautiful golden retriever door knocker I was fortunate enough to win. It was such a grand time meeting your staff and the many people who visited your store. From all of us at Dogs Helping Heroes, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” – James Day, Door Knocker Drawing Winner

A Big Thanks to TOPS Magazine for Coming Out to Photograph our Showroom Event! See the Gallery Here.

We’re so excited to announce that through these two promotions we were able to raise a total of $4635, more than enough to train a new service dog. We had the opportunity choose a name for the new dog. We chose Marvin, a tribute to one of our best-selling brands, Marvin Windows and Doors.

Thank you again to everyone who supported DHH through these promotions. We are so excited to have had the opportunity to work with this incredible organization and support an incredible cause.
