Whether it’s gazing at a view or letting the light pour in on a sunny afternoon, windows are one of those features that make a house feel like a home.
But the reality is that many families living in the Lower Mainland can’t afford to have new windows installed, which may lead to a 10 – 20% increase in heating and cooling bills throughout the year. That’s why the Centra Cares Foundation is stepping in to give one family in need a full house of brand new windows – worth up to $15,000.
To nominate a family, simply answer the following questions:
• Why are you or the person you are nominating deserving of this prize valued at $15,000?
• What does this family mean to you or the community?
• How has this family impacted those around them?
• How will this impact them if chosen?
Nominations will be accepted at this page until August 8, 2019. You can nominate a neighbour, friend, family member, or even yourself by visiting this contest page, or by sending a direct message to @centrawindows on their Facebook page. Video submissions will also be accepted. Make sure to share your nomination with your family and friends after you post it!
Last year’s Centra Cares Home Renovation contest was the most successful to date, with over 300 nominations coming throughout B.C. This resulted in a dream coming to life for this Lanford family.
“We are still in disbelief after winning this contest. It has been very emotional and we are just so thankful. This has not only changed our home, it has changed our lives for the better. Our hydro bills have gone down, it feels so nice in our home, there is no cold draft that we had to deal with, and it’s just awesome. You changed our lives for the better and provided a better path for my family.”
The winner will be announced the week of August 26th. To learn more, visit centra.ca/nominate
