Windows 4 Widows

A unique collaboration has begun between Michigan Screen and Window and the esteemed military veterans organization, Hero’s Corner, is making a profound difference in the lives of those who’ve given so much. “Windows for Widows” is more than just a program; it’s a pledge of support, a gesture of gratitude, and a beacon of hope for the widows of our nation’s heroes. In honor of International Widows Day on June 23rd, this initiative stands as a testament to our community’s unwavering commitment to honoring the sacrifices made by military families.

A Beacon of Hope

At the core of “Windows for Widows” lies a simple yet impactful mission: to find and support a deserving widow within our community by enhancing her home with the gift of new, high-quality windows. This contribution goes beyond the aesthetic or functional improvements to her living space; it symbolizes the warmth, protection, and clarity that come from knowing her community stands with her. Partnering with Hero’s Corner allows us to reach those who need our support the most, ensuring that our efforts illuminate the lives of those who have endured the loss of their loved ones in service to our country.

Know a Deserving Widow?

Join us in this heartfelt endeavor to bring light and comfort to the homes and hearts of widows in Grand Rapids. “Windows for Widows” is not just about windows; it’s about opening doors to healing, connection, and community support. This International Widows Day, let’s come together to make a tangible difference, one window at a time. Your support, whether through donations, referrals, or simply spreading the word, can help us turn this vision into a reality for a family who deserves our gratitude and respect.
