Penguin Windows

December 30, 2009

Penguin Windows’ community giving campaign got a heart-felt holiday boost this week with a special delivery made just in time for Christmas. On December 22nd at 11:30 AM, a large Penguin Windows truck backed up to the Northwest Harvest Cherry Street Food Bank in Seattle, WA to deliver thousands of dollars worth of food, just a week after delivering hundreds of toys to area charities. This latest delivery will help give Northwest Harvest the supplies it needs to provide nutritious food to hungry people statewide over the holidays in a manner that respects their dignity, and works to eliminate hunger. Penguin Windows President, Dean Laue makes a concerted effort to give year round, but this year he wanted to reach deeper and give more. “We believe in this community. It’s not just where we work, it’s where we live,” said Laue. “And for the folks at Penguin Windows, the holidays are a big part of what makes our communities so bright. It’s only natural that we’d rally behind such a great cause that truly embodies the spirit of giving.” Northwest Harvest, Washington’s own statewide hunger relief agency, provides a proven, successful, and cost-effective model for getting nutritious food to those who need it. They strive to be the most efficient hunger response program in the state of Washington, with more than 93% of their budget going directly to food distribution. The massive food donation comes just a week after Penguin Windows teamed up with another Seattle organization, Treehouse, for a highly-successful gift drive called “The Joy of Giving.” Last weekend, proud Penguin employees delivered more than 350 toys destined for needy families, as well as clothing donations that would also be delivered in time for Christmas.
