MI Windows and Doors Thrives in Kansas City Market Through Partnership and Charity
MI Windows and Doors prides itself on creating strong, effective relationships with its partners. Recent involvement with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through their partnership with Summit Custom Homes and Kansas City Building Supply exemplifies the high level of commitment, care, and trust MIWD is known for.
Summit Custom Homes of Kansas City recently completed the building of the Kansas City St. Jude Dream Home. The home is a qualified “Zero Hero” home because all of the materials required to complete the home were donated – from foundation to roof, labor to windows. “MIWD was extremely generous to the Dream Home Giveaway campaign, and we are so grateful to be partnered with such an amazing company,” stated Megan Fratzke, Marketing Manager at Summit. “We are truly touched by the overwhelming show of support. We could not have done it without them.”
Kansas City Building Supply, the distributor that supplies MIWD products to Summit, shared in the excitement of the event. “Summit Custom Homes is a premier home builder in our area,” stated Dennis Donnelly, President of KCBS. “We are very proud to be a trade partner for their MIWD needs.”
Summit Custom Homes' involvement with St. Jude has resulted in over $3 million donated in the last three years. This year Summit's commitment to St. Jude goes beyond the building of the Dream Home; they are also this year's Presenting Sponsor at the St. Jude Give thanks. Walk. The Walk will take place on November 23rd at Community America Ballpark in Kansas City, KS. "We are very excited to further our relationship with St. Jude though this additional event," said Fratzke. "We have formed a team for the walk and are currently raising donations." Employees have encouraged family, friends, and Summit homeowners to walk with them and have risen over $12,000 to date.
