CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Glass Doctor® of Charlotte installed 66 custom, framed mirrors worth more than $14,000 in the new Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte March 30 and 31.
"It's not always about the money," Glass Doctor of Charlotte owner Ed Sieber said. "This donation and this charity reflect who we are at Glass Doctor and The Dwyer Group®."
In-kind donations, like the two-day mirror installation, allow the House to focus on the most critical, day-to-day needs of the children and families undergoing treatment.
The new 35,000-square-foot facility gives families of children receiving treatment at local hospitals a comfortable place to stay during a stressful time. The House, which can accommodate up to 28 families at a time, will hold its grand opening April 30 – May 6.
"We're excited we're getting our own Ronald McDonald House here in Charlotte," Sieber said. "It's filling a need in the community, and we're glad to be a part of it."
This is the second year Glass Doctor and five of its sister companies in The Dwyer Group (Aire Serv® Air Conditioning and Heating, The Grounds Guys®, Mr. Appliance®, Mr. Electric® and Mr. Rooter®) made a national commitment of $100,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities®. As part of the sponsorship, franchise owners continue to donate their services, labor and supplies to Ronald McDonald House facilities in their respective service areas.
