Giving Back to Our Community
Care and Share Program - Closing the Window on Hunger
Champion Windows of Colorado Springs presented Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado with 33,500 pounds of food* on Saturday, August 28, 2010 at the Champion Windows showroom.
During the summer of 2010, Champion Windows worked with Care and Share on an aggressive campaign to close the window on hunger. Throughout the summer, Champion Windows collected food donations for Care and Share and offered incentives to customers who purchased Champion products by donating food to Care and Share for specific purchases.
This summer, Champion Windows donated a total of 63,500 pounds of food to Care and Share Food Bank.
Military Welcome Home Parade
Champion Windows is a major sponsor of the Red White and Brave Welcome Home Parade.
"The past 6 years we have watched from afar as young people from our community have faced their commitment to us, and our nation, in a place halfway around the world. Their hardships have been numerous. Their personal sacrifice has been great. Many of our service men and women are now returning home some from 3 or more tours in combat and we want them to know that our hearts and minds are with them."
Champion of Colorado Springs is donating $25 from each sale for 1 month each quarter and giving the Money directly to a Military Family in need.
Last quarter, Champion donated $2700 to Joseph and Lindsay Lyon of Peyton, CO. "Joseph received a medical discharge from the Army this past year after suffering serious complications from a roadside bomb explosion in Iraq. As a result of this, he not only suffered damage to 3 discs in his back from being thrown from the vehicle, but sustained a traumatic brain injury as well. He cannot work due to these issues, and after speaking with them it was brought to my attention that they cannot make their rent or car payments because Lindsay cannot find work as well. They have two small children, ages boy - 2 and girl - 5, and Joe cannot be left alone with them for any great length of time as his memory has been compromised due to his injuries. They are still waiting for their medical disability coverage to begin."
