Big or small, Window Nation’s charities come in all different shapes and sizes and we are passionate about each and every one of them. We are grateful for each organization and the causes that they fight for. Our personal investment in our charities comes from our employees’ ardor and personal involvement in each one. Today, we proudly support the following:
Habitat For Humanity
Started in 1976, Habitat's goal is to eliminate poverty housing all over the world. The program joins volunteers with families in need and they work together on the construction of homes. Window Nation has donated employee time and windows to various projects, plus we have donated a portion of our sales to the program.
Ireland Cancer Center
University Hospitals, Ireland Cancer Center, part of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, is dedicated to innovative treatment and promising research in the fight against cancer through ongoing studies aimed at cancer treatment and prevention. Window Nation has donated a portion of our sales to the Ireland Cancer Center in 2009 and 2010.
Cleveland Animal Protective League
The Cleveland Animal Protective League's mission is to foster compassion and end animal suffering. Incorporated in 1913, they are an independent, nonprofit humane society located in Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood. The Cleveland APL provides shelter to homeless animals relinquished by their guardians, animals that are rescued from abuse or neglect and stray or abandoned cats. At Window Nation, we have supported the APL's mission through ongoing charitable donations, most recently the Pledge for Pets Radiothon.
University of Maryland School of Medicine
The School of Medicine, established in 1807, is the first public and the fifth oldest medical school in the United States and the first to institute a residency training program. The School of Medicine was the founding school of the University of Maryland and today is an integral part of the 11-campus University System of Maryland. On the University of Maryland’s Baltimore campus, the School of Medicine serves as the anchor for a large academic health center which aims to provide the best medical education, conduct the most innovative biomedical research and provide the best patient care and community service to Maryland and beyond. While its tradition of excellence remains constant, the School of Medicine and its reputation for academic achievement continue to grow.
Coats for Kids
In 1981, local radio station employees became aware of a large number of children missing school in the winter because they did not have warm coats. That November, Coats for Kids – Cleveland was founded when the radio station began soliciting donations of new or like-new winter coats. That first campaign filled the studio, and subsequent campaigns brought in even more coats, along with monetary donations used to purchase new coats.
Since then, millions of dollars have been raised and hundreds of thousands of new and like-new coats have been distributed to children in need in northeast Ohio.
Window Nation’s Efforts: Owners Harley and Aaron Magden, of Window Nation, have been avid supporters of Coats for Kids since 2013. The company contributed nearly $5,000 to the CFK organization just in return for customers mentioning Mike Trivisonno when they visited one of the northeast Ohio showrooms.
This year, Window Nation was honored with the opportunity to feature as the presenting sponsor of Triv’s Vegas Show at the Hilton Garden Inn on November 20 and 21. In addition, Window Nation was also able to donate $10,000 to help defray expenses associated with the Vegas Show.
This campaign season, the Window Nation showrooms in Warrensville Heights and on Grayton Road in Cleveland are also collecting coats! So if you get the chance, please feel free to stop by one of our locations to contribute your own donations!
