Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
Window Genie of Raleigh continues their community service partnership with the Holly Springs Food Cupboard. Window Genie is a local home services franchise specializing in home services such as window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning and much more. The Holly Springs Food Cupboard's mission is to provide supplemental food and referral assistance to those in need in the Holly Springs community.
Since the summer of 2012, Mike Boone and his team at Window Genie have been giving back to the Holly Springs Food Cupboard by regularly performing free cleaning services at the facilities as well as collecting food from customers and delivering it to the Cupboard. Boone said, "Soon after launching my Window Genie operations here in Raleigh, NC, I began searching for a viable partner for our Windows for Wishes program." Windows 4 Wishes is Window Genie's system wide give-back program facilitated by the corporate staff, encouraging and enabling all Window Genie franchise locations across the country to get involved and stay active in their local communities. "As luck would have it, the founders of the Holly Springs Food Cupboard, Pat Haggard and Carol Moranz, visited my local Rotary Club to provide the members with an organizational update. They had an immediate need for our services as they renovated an older ranch home in Holly Springs as a base for their daily operations but we also thought we could collect food donations from Window Genie customers as we completed our work orders in the nearby community."
Recently, Mike was able to facilitate the donation of a commercial freezer and two commercial refrigerators through networking in the community. "A local engineering company was scheduled to renovate the Carolina Inn, located on the University of North Carolina campus and the new owners were more than happy to donate the appliances to a good local cause," Boone said.
In the past year, the Holly Springs Food Cupboard has added two additions, doubling the physical size of their operation. "The need in the community is there and they are now better equipped to meet that need with the new appliances. Window Genie Raleigh is growing along with the Holly Springs Food Cupboard. We are great partners," said Boone.
Window Genie contacts the Holly Springs Food Cupboard every Monday to see if they have a shortage or special need for particular items. "They collect a lot of food from churches and schools on drives, yet there are always certain items or categories where they have shortages. As part of the selling process, we communicate the shortages to our customers and when the field technicians complete the work order, they will also pick up any and all donations for the Cupboard."
