Anyone in Florida knows how damaging and hot the sun can be, causing damage and high cooling bills, something that hurts non-profits, who try to save every dollar so they can help others.
Recognizing this problem, Cocoa’s JAG Window Tinting is stepping up and reached out to 3M, manufacturer of high quality window treatments, and got them to donate $1,500 worth of high quality window film so they could install it on the windows of The Children’s Hunger Project, located in Cocoa.
“We decided that it was important to do what we could to help Children’s Hunger Project,” James Gadient, President of JAG Window Tinting said. “We are providing the installation expertise and labor to make this project a reality.”
The Children’s Hunger Project, with a mission of sending food home with kids for families in needs, is pleased with the project.
“We really want to maximize the amount we can give to the community,” said Keith Gee, Executive Director of The Children’s Hunger Project. “Every dollar we save on administrative and operational costs, like electricity, means we have one more money to use to help end child hunger.”
JAG Window Tinting will be installing the window treatments Tuesday and Wednesday. Gadient and Gee will be available for interviews both before and during. Including the donated film, the total value of this donation is $8,400.
With the help of a dedicated staff and team of volunteers, The Children’s Hunger Project provides kid-friendly food packages to elementary school students who would normally come to school hungry on Monday mornings. Improved nutrition, on the weekends enable at “at-risk” children to be better prepared to participate in their education.
