Windows & Doors Donated to Habitat for Humanity
SUSSEX COUNTY, Del.- Habitat for Humanity's latest project has a donation with a clear benefit--literally.
Pella Mid-Atlantic donated windows and doors for Lekeia Briddell's Ingram Village home.
David Lebowitz, the General Manager of Pella Mid Atlantic says the company wanted to invest in the community and a deserving person.
"We are providing the eyes and the mouth of the house so to speak," he says. "The windows are the eyes, the door is the mouth, so she's going to get years and years of trouble free performance from the great quality of our products so she'll enjoy them, and they'll also be energy efficient so it will help her save money."
Sussex County Habitat for Humanity Executive Director Kevin Gilmore says the donation also provides invaluable education.
"[Pella] also helped with the training our volunteers on the proper installation of windows and doors," he explains. "So it's nice to have a professional installer pair up with our regular volunteers who are out day in and day out. [To] just do some educational training on proper installation helps us be better at what we do."
Briddell says all the help means so much more than just having new infrastructure.
"It lets me know that people don't mind helping other people in the community," she says. "They don't even know you. So it means a lot to me."
