VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to support non-profit organizations in the region, Paramount Builders, Inc. recently participated in two projects. The Virginia Beach-based residential remodeling company hosted a "Building Faith in Our Community" contest on Facebook and has installed new windows at Urban Discovery Ministries (UDM) in Norfolk, Virginia.
"We strive to help charitable causes in the area and give back to the local community," said Ed Augustine, CEO and president of Paramount Builders. "Both of these projects are focused on improving the lives of people through organizations that assist those in need."
As a result of the "Building Faith in Our Community" contest through Facebook, Paramount Builders donated a total of $5,000 to five non-profit organizations. The first place winner, HOPE Charitable Services, received $2,500. Wish-A-Fish Foundation came in second place, earning a $1,000 contribution. National Alliance on Mental Illness Virginia, Virginia Wounded Warrior Program and Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters each received $500 from the exterior home remodeling contractor.
For the second project, Paramount Builders replaced six windows at UDM's headquarters in Norfolk for the organization that helps to establish inner city churches. The new windows were donated by Alside, the manufacturer.
"Our new windows improve the energy efficiency, as well as enhance our building's appearance," said Ronnie McAdoo, executive director of Urban Discovery Ministries. "Through the generosity of Paramount Builders, we are able to more effectively reach lives for Christ. We also appreciate the spirit and quality of work from their operation manager and installers."
