January 2024 — Renewal by Andersen of North Texas has recently been selected as the recipient of a substantial grant donation from our Andersen Corporate headquarters. This significant contribution marks a pivotal moment for our Texas operations, allowing us to amplify our commitment to positive change and community impact.

This $150,000 grant will be donated to a nonprofit community partner, Family Gateway.  Family Gateway is a terrific organization whose mission is to provide stability and life-changing supportive services to children and families affected by homelessness. They were thrilled to receive such a big donation and excited about how this donation will contribute to their already exceptional programs.

“Due to our amazing partnership with Renewal by Andersen we were granted a $150k donation on December 5th,  to our knowledge this is the first time we have been awarded a grant of this size.  We are especially grateful for Renewal by Andersen’s generous support as we close out 2023. This has been an exciting year of growth for Family Gateway as we have officially completed the renovations of our new 50-room suite-style shelter! With the increasing cost of living and the lack of affordable housing stock in Dallas, we have seen a dramatic increase in the need for our services. The increased investment from Renewal by Andersen this year enables Family Gateway to meet the growing demand for shelter and housing services! We are so thankful.”   -Kathy KidwellDirector of Community Engagement at Family Gateway

Esler Cos and Renewal by Andersen’s commitment to making a positive impact in the communities we serve is evident. The $150,000 will create a substantial positive impact in the North Texas community and enrich the lives of those struggling with homelessness.

“The work that Family Gateway conducts in our community to battle homelessness for families is difference-making. I am so grateful to the Fred C. and Katherine B. Andersen Foundation for recognizing this amazing organization. This is one of the many intangibles that Esler Cos. / Renewal by Andersen provides not only for their teammates across the USA, but they hugely impact several benevolence groups as well!”    Steven Johnston, General Manager, RbA of North Texas
