MI Windows and Milgard Windows & Doors will donate more than $50,000 towards breast cancer research in October, according to a press release. The companies' nonprofit affiliate, the MI Charitable Foundation plans to donate $25,000 to both the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
In addition, both MI and Milgard are showing support for breast cancer awareness in the following ways:
- Pink Labels: The addition of a pink-colored National Fenestration Rating Council label will be placed on each window and patio door produced in the month of October.
- Local Outreach: Each MI and Milgard facility is raising funds through sales of pink-branded merchandise for a local breast cancer charity in their area.
- Spread Awareness on Social Media: The MI Charitable Foundation will donate $10 for every Facebook, Instagram or Twitter post that includes the hashtag #MIGoPink or #MilgardGoPink up to $10,000, which will be split between the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
"MI, Milgard, and our Charitable Foundation are determined to help in the fight against this awful disease by raising awareness and contributing resources to those searching for a cure," says Matt DeSoto, MI CEO. "Giving back is ingrained in our culture. By using pink labels and donating to these worthy foundations, we hope to inspire others to join the fight against breast cancer."
