a wholly-owned subsidiary of PGT
Innovations (NYSE:PGTI), has long been recognized for strong support
of their South Florida community. This ongoing generosity and outreach
is evident in their recent in-kind donation of windows to the foster
care organization 4KIDS of South Florida (http://www.4kidsofsfl.org/).
4KIDS of South Florida is a faith-based foster care agency working to
provide hope, healing, and a home for abused and neglected children.
Through the 4KIDS program, individuals in Broward, Palm Beach, and the
Treasure Coast areas are trained and licensed to become foster parents.
With teenagers typically being harder to place, 4KIDS offers four local
residential facilities where children can live in an authentic home
environment. The organization also assists expectant mothers by
preparing them for independence with post-birth care, classes, and a
residential option, if needed.
An attempted break-in at a 4KIDS residential home was prevented due to

"The donation of our impact-resistant windows adds not only weather
protection to these important residences, but they add an additional
layer of safety and security for these teenagers," said Daryl Hendricks,
Sr. Vice President of Operations, CGI Windows & Doors. "Businesses don't
often get the opportunity to step in and help those in need literally in
our backyard, in our same zip code," continued Daryl. "What an amazing
chance we had to raise their level of security and safety with this
donation. It's an absolute honor to be part of the 4KIDS family."
"The donation of windows from CGI Windows & Doors resulted in one less
step needed on our part with regard to storm and security preparation,"
said Deanna Prusinowski, the business engagement officer for 4KIDS of
South Florida. "This was a great opportunity for CGI, and they stepped
in and made a huge difference in both these kids' lives, and their
community. We are so grateful for their dedication to their local
CGI Windows & Doors donated Sentinel Series 110 single-hung windows,
Series 120 2-panel horizontal rollers with screens, and Series 150
2-panel sliding glass doors.
The products will be installed by CGI dealer Palm

specializing in architectural impact windows and doors. Known as an
elite-level distributor for industry-leading window and door
manufacturers, Palm Beach Window and Door Design Center offers an
in-house service center and support system that has made them the go-to
