MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CGI®, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PGT Innovations (NYSE:PGTI), has long been recognized for strong support of their South Florida community. This ongoing generosity and outreach is evident in their recent in-kind donation of windows to the foster care organization 4KIDS of South Florida (http://www.4kidsofsfl.org/).
4KIDS of South Florida is a faith-based foster care agency working to provide hope, healing, and a home for abused and neglected children. Through the 4KIDS program, individuals in Broward, Palm Beach, and the Treasure Coast areas are trained and licensed to become foster parents. With teenagers typically being harder to place, 4KIDS offers four local residential facilities where children can live in an authentic home environment. The organization also assists expectant mothers by preparing them for independence with post-birth care, classes, and a residential option, if needed.
An attempted break-in at a 4KIDS residential home was prevented due to impact-resistant windows, which lead the group to approach CGI for their assistance.
“The donation of our impact-resistant windows adds not only weather protection to these important residences, but they add an additional layer of safety and security for these teenagers,” said Daryl Hendricks, Sr. Vice President of Operations, CGI Windows & Doors. “Businesses don’t often get the opportunity to step in and help those in need literally in our backyard, in our same zip code,” continued Daryl. “What an amazing chance we had to raise their level of security and safety with this donation. It’s an absolute honor to be part of the 4KIDS family.”
“The donation of windows from CGI Windows & Doors resulted in one less step needed on our part with regard to storm and security preparation,” said Deanna Prusinowski, the business engagement officer for 4KIDS of South Florida. “This was a great opportunity for CGI, and they stepped in and made a huge difference in both these kids’ lives, and their community. We are so grateful for their dedication to their local community.”
CGI Windows & Doors donated Sentinel Series 110 single-hung windows, Series 120 2-panel horizontal rollers with screens, and Series 150 2-panel sliding glass doors.
The products will be installed by CGI dealer Palm Beach Window and Door Design Center, a full-service company specializing in architectural impact windows and doors. Known as an elite-level distributor for industry-leading window and door manufacturers, Palm Beach Window and Door Design Center offers an in-house service center and support system that has made them the go-to dealer for many of South Florida’s most prestigious builders, architects, and designers.
