Glass Doctor(R) Announces "Season of Sharing" Contest Winners

February 05, 2010 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas – Glass Doctor is pleased to announce the winners of its "Season of Sharing" campaign. Conducted Nov. – Dec. 2009, the Glass Doctor Season of Sharing campaign encouraged the more than 170 Glass Doctor franchises in the United States and Canada to collect and donate non-perishable food items to local food banks and nonprofit organizations. Award winners are:

  • Most Items Collected Overall: Glass Doctor of the Inland Empire, Hesperia, Calif., owned by Matt Nicklaus
  • Most Items Collected per Capita of Territory: Glass Doctor of Montrose, Colo., owned by Curtis Lyon
  • Most Creative Program: Glass Doctor of Southwest Riverside County, Murrieta, Calif., owned by Laurel Miller

The Overall category winner for the second year in a row, Glass Doctor of the Inland Empire partnered with the Salvation Army and Desert Manna to collect enough food for 1,250 boxed meals, which were distributed to 925 families. In addition, Glass Doctor of the Inland Empire helped 225 children with new toys for Christmas.

In just its first year to participate in the Season of Sharing campaign, Glass Doctor of Montrose collected more than 300 items for the Sharing Ministries Food Bank to win the Per Capita category. This category rewards franchises that collect the most nonperishable food items per capita population in their territories.

The most creative Season of Sharing program was conducted by Glass Doctor of Southwest Riverside County, which collected care packages for more than 500 U.S. soldiers stationed in Afghanistan. The packages were sent overseas in time for Christmas by Assist Our Troops, a local grassroots non-profit organization.

"We are proud of these Glass Doctor franchisees and their teams for their efforts to give back to their local communities even during tough economic times," President Mark Dawson said. "They deserve this round of applause because they are excellent examples to the whole Glass Doctor franchise system."
