Simonton Donates Windows to Sandy VictimJuly 12th, 2013 | Category: Industry News
Industry companies, including ABC Supply and Simonton Windows, are helping one family in need after toddler Tripp Halstead was critically injured when a large branch fell on his head during Hurricane Sandy. Months later, the Halstead family struggles with daily life, but has received help from thousands of individuals and companies.
“There is a chain of support for this family,” says Chea Prince with ABC Supply Co. Inc. in Smyrna, Ga. “We learned about the need for improvements to the Halstead home from Vince Smith, owner of Hassle Free Window & Door Co. LLC. He asked for a donation of windows so he could install them in the Halstead home at no charge. We contacted Simonton Windows who immediately agreed to donate their Energy Star qualified Simonton ProFinish® Contractor windows to this project.”
Due to the medical needs of Tripp, the family has to move to a one-level home closer to relatives for daily assistance.
“We understand Tripp’s need for a wheelchair made it important for the family to sell their multi-level home,” says Vince Smith with Hassle Free Window & Door Co. out of Marietta, Ga. “My wife and I were following Tripp’s daily setbacks and progress on Facebook and decided we’d donate my services to install the new Simonton windows.”
