Windows for Wishes Logo

Have you ever wondered what happens to the old window frames that are replaced during the replacement window process? Truth is, they usually go straight to the dump. We believe this is not only bad for our environment, but it’s a complete waste of resources. So here is The Window Source plan!

The Window Source of Athens is teaming up with a local non-profit to raise money for a great cause. Windows for Wishes is a program we created where we sell the old window frames. All proceeds will be donated to the non-profit.

Old Materials Make New Dreams Come True
Local Company Finds Creative Way to Raise Money for Children

 

[Athens, GA, September 28, 2018] – On any other job site, old wooden windows would be thrown to the landfill. But one local company is using them to make dreams come true for sick children.
Through fundraising and their new program, Windows for Wishes, The Window Source of Athens donated $2,900 to Walk for Wishes. The concept is simple; their customers hire them to replace windows, and they sell the old window frames to raise money for Make a Wish Georgia.
Co-owner Ashley Smith says, “The idea came to us from Pinterest. We saw people paying money for rustic window panes, and we thought, ‘hey we have some of those!’” We had been looking for more ways to give back to our community, so instead of keeping the profits, we donated to a cause we are really passionate about.”
“Our customers feel really good about it. Not only are they getting new windows, but they know that they helped give some joy to a family in need,” said Tyler Smith.
Their donation along with several others will be recognized October 7th at the Walk for Wishes event in Athens, hosted by Make a Wish Georgia. All donations support Make a Wish Foundation’s mission to grant a wish to every child with a critical illness. Learn more about their cause and make a donation to the local chapter at Wish.org.
