Window World Gives Back
Our commitment goes beyond providing quality home improvement solutions for our customers. We also strive to make an impact in our communities. Through our various philanthropic efforts, we have the opportunity to give back to others in need.
Window World Cares
Founded in 2008, Window World Cares is the charitable arm of Window World, Inc.. Committed to helping others in need, the foundation exists to benefit children and families at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Through fundraising, community outreach programs, and other philanthropic endeavors, we’ve raised millions of dollars for our causes and spread the word about deserving causes.
In 2010, we were recognized by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® as the “New Corporate Partner of the Year,” and we intend to live up to this honor for years to come. Window World Cares is a core part of what we do every day, and we consider it a privilege to work toward making a difference with every window we sell.
St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital
In 2008, Window World Cares became a partner of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. St. Jude’s is one of the world’s leading research and treatment centers for pediatric cancer and other childhood diseases. Since St. Jude was founded 50 years ago, it has helped to increase the survival rate for ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, one of the most common forms of childhood cancer) from 4% to 94%. St. Jude never considers a family’s ability to pay for a child’s treatment, covering the costs of medical care, lodging, meals, and travel to and from the hospital.
Veterans Airlift Command
Window World proudly supports the Veterans Airlift Command in providing air transportation to wounded warriors and their families for medical and other compassionate purposes. The Veterans Airlift Command offers soldiers returning from combat, often with devastating injuries and unable to traverse commercial airports, the opportunity to fly worry-free to visit their families or receive treatment. We’ve flown over 55 missions since our partnership began, and every time we meet a new Veteran, we become even more passionate about Veterans Airlift Command.
The No. 100 Stinger is a tribute to the original winning car of the Indianapolis 500, created to commemorate its 100th anniversary. A salute to starters of long ago, the Stinger features a yellow and black color scheme taken directly from the original Indy 500 winner, the Marmon Wasp. The car also displays a graphics package featuring the name of every Indianapolis 500 starter. Each of the former starters has been invited to autograph the car, and for every additional signature Window World Cares makes a donation of support.
Window World Racing
Since April 2009, Window World has proudly been affiliated with Indy and NASCAR star John Andretti, one of the premier drivers in the top spectator sport in the world, represented Window World in the 2009, 2010, and 2011 Indianapolis 500s. Most recently, in 2011 John Andretti partnered with Andretti Autosport, Richard Petty, and Window World to bring the #43 Window World car back to the Indianapolis 500 for the third time, where he placed 22nd.
As part of our commitment to serving those in need, we are proud to help support Mark and Kathy Lipic’s mission work. Mark and Kathy have been serving the growing refugee population in Catania, Sicily.
