North Texas Food Bank
Based on an initiative of a local Plano church, we decided to donate $500 worth of diapers, baby food, and miscellaneous food and materials to our local North Texas Food Bank. The principle of the message was that giving a little can add up to a lot, and that paying it forward has a butterfly effect on our community.
It’s important to remind ourselves that even though we live in a Metroplex in one of the wealthiest countries, and have one of the highest standards of living of almost anywhere in the world; there is plenty of need right here in our backyard. Children and seniors are particularly in need in our communities, and it really doesn’t take much to make a huge impact.
The North Texas Food Bank has been around for over 30 years, is a top-ranked nonprofit relief organization, and is the largest North Texas charity. We hope that our donations will provide children, as well as other community members with a a little more to help them through the winter. If you’d like to donate, or learn more click here. You can donate $5 online in less than 5 minutes!
40th Anniversary Celebration!
Here are a few pictures from our 40th Anniversary Event. We had an awesome time, and can’t wait to go even bigger for our 50th!
A Past Contribution that Keeps on Giving!
Founder’s Park (Behind Wylie High School).
It had been so long since we contributed (over 10 years ago), that we had forgotten about providing labor and financial support for the construction of Founder’s Park in Wylie. It has been newly renovated, and looks great! Imagine how many little feet have run across this playground!!
We recently purchased enough school supplies to support 15 children in various school districts in North Texas! We donated backpacks full of school supplies. Nothing is more important than the future that we leave behind!
The Wylie/Murphy Hail Storm
Plano got hit with severe hail, only a few weeks later Wylie and Murphy got hit with devastating hail. Many people were without power, and literally without a roof over their head. We offered $200 off all two-car garage doors to any customer who sustained significant damage from the hail storms.
Much of our staff were victims ourselves, and we felt how extremely overwhelming it was for homeowners and residents who were affected by the hailstorms. In order to make it easier on the home owner, we provided written estimates and e-mailed them as well. This was successful in helping the home owner with instant information for their insurance company, as well as, saving them from having to take off work for an on-site estimate.
The leading magazine in our industry, ‘The International Door & Operator Industry’ by the International Door Association, has published our story about the disaster relief and charitable work we performed following the Rowlett tornado.
Here’s a closer look at some of the images that they included in their article about our company.
We love our community, and truly care about all of you! If you were affected by the Tornado in Rowlett, or any of the Hail Storms that hit Wylie, Murphy, Farmersville, and Plano areas- be sure to give us a call. We have helped hundreds of customers get new garage doors installed- most of which were installed the same day as the initial call. We’re here to help everyone get back to normal!
Habitat for Humanity
We have done a number of projects for Habitat for Humanity over the years in numerous cities. We love our community, and do our part to give back whenever we can! The pictures above show our most recent project we performed in Dallas. Habitat is a non-profit, non-governmental agency. The mission statement of Habitat for Humanity is “Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope”. Homes are built using volunteer labor, such as ours at Plano Overhead Garage Door!
School Supply Donations
Plano Overhead purchased enough school supplies for Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students to help children in need for the 2014-2015 school year! With several teachers in our network of employees’ families, we support children’s education with open arms!
2016 (and 2015) Supertech Day
We were honored to receive national recognition for our International Supertech Day celebration for a 2nd time. We had an amazing time during both celebrations! We appreciate how hard our technicians work, through the extreme heat and cold of North Texas.
Liftmaster Summer Safety Event June 2014
We had a blast when Liftmaster hosted a Summer Safety Awareness meeting at our showroom in June 2014. We had free food, door prizes, and great giveaways! We had a great turnout, and a lot of fun!
