Ply Gem recently donated windows to assist the Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers program (TROSA) with a rehabilitation home renovation. Located in Durham, N.C., the 4,200-square-foot home will provide 17 individuals with improved housing accommodations, giving recovering residents greater independence and the confidence to transition into the community and become successful members of society.

“As a business in the Triangle area, we are always looking for ways to help our neighbors and contribute to the greater good of the community,” says Keith Pigues, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Ply Gem. “We believe that this new residence will greatly improve the lives of program participants and we are honored that TROSA approached us for a windows donation to help make this house a home.”

The Cary, N.C., based manufacturer contributed 23 of its Ply Gem Windows Premium Replacement Series double hung windows. Reflecting its commitment to sustainability, Ply Gem donated windows meeting Energy Star guidelines and feature dual pane Low-E glass with argon gas fill to help reduce heating and cooling bills and improve overall comfort in the home, officials note

“Through this generous donation, it is easy to see that Ply Gem is a community-minded company and more than willing to support our cause by donating windows to a home that represents opportunity, success and independence,” says Michelle Kucerak, director of development for drug rehabilitation program. “This is the exact type of generosity any non-profit program such as TROSA needs to progress.”

The home is on schedule to be completed in 2010.
