Win-Dor Inc. is donated 88 windows for four residential homes in a new Coachella Valley facility designed for abused and at-risk teensr. The vinyl windows supplied for the new Olive Crest Homes & Services for Abused Children facilities are valued at more than $56,000, according to the company.

“Over the past 10 years, we have supported Olive Crest and have been continually impressed with its exemplary care of foster children in the Southland,” says Gary Templin, co-owner of the Anaheim, Calif., based manufacturer. “And as a family-owned and operated business that takes great pride in its own craft, we felt compelled to contribute something to the center from our hearts as well as our pocketbooks.”

Located on five acres, the Coachella Valley Children’s Center will ultimately include four residential homes, a community education center, including administrative offices, a gymnasium and swimming pool. The four residential homes, which can house up to six foster children each, along with their foster parents, are expected to open in January 2009. The second phase of construction—including the education center, gym and swimming pool—is expected to be completed in 2011.

“We want the teens living in these homes to have the same level of comfort and security that we all have in our own homes,” says Donald Verleur, CEO of Olive Crest. “And we’re very grateful to WinDor for helping make our goal a reality once again.”
