Armstrong Healing Heroes Partnered with
Window Depot USA of Youngstown
Window Depot USA of Youngstown is proud to announce our collaboration with Armstrong’s #HealingHeroes program. Healing Heroes is a partnership program with Guardian Angel Medical Service Dogs to provide a highly-trained service dog to qualifying disabled veterans in our communities struggling with disabilities such as PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), Traumatic Brain Injuries, seizure disorders, and more.
Armstrong Healing Heroes has two goals in 2017
- Raise enough funds to donate five service dogs to qualifying disabled veterans within our communities serviced by Armstrong. Each service dog costs approximately $22,000, therefore a total of $110,000 for five dogs is needed. During Veterans Day week at the launch of this project, Armstrong made a commitment to raise $55,000 and equally match each donation received in support of this worthy cause.
- Raise awareness of veterans needs. Statistically, 22 veterans suffering from PTSD and TBI commit suicide every day. After a veteran has been paired with a service dog, there has been success and significant improvement in the lives of veterans.
How is Window Depot Assisting in this awesome project you ask?
We’re coming to the table as a sponsor as well as bringing YOU our awesome customers to the table by donating twenty-five dollars from every qualifying estimate so you too will be helping the Healing Heroes program flourish.
Not ready to commit? No worries we also have some vintage window sashes available for your craft or art projects. All sashes are in excellent vintage condition and available for just $10 each and 100% goes directly to #HealingHeroes.
