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.
