Giving back to the community is an honor for Strategic-Partners, home office
WIN Home Inspection franchise owners make a difference in their communities by supporting nonprofits and charities. They continued that tradition during WIN’s annual convention in Houston, Texas, where they joined with the WIN home office to raise $10,000 for Mercy Ministries, an organization that helps young women in distress.
WIN Home Inspection Strategic-Partners bought $7,000 worth of raffle tickets, and the WIN home office made an additional donation — raising the total to $10,000, with all proceeds going to Mercy Ministries.
The WIN team of Sierra, California, won the raffle for a 48-month vehicle lease, which will help the home inspection franchise serve its clients and continue to grow. All WIN inspectors drive a branded white van, SUV or crossover vehicle, which sets us apart from the “lone wolf” inspector who pulls up in an old pickup truck.
“As I was walking to the stage to accept the car, I was completely overwhelmed. On top of that, the opportunity to donate $10,000 to a charity is beyond words,” says WIN Sierra co-owner Brian Kelley. “We work hard to support 14 employees, and this car came at a wonderful time. Giving back to the community on top of that is a priceless gift.”
Mercy Ministries accepts young women from all over the world. The organization currently has homes in Nashville, Tennessee; St. Louis, Missouri; Monroe, Louisiana; and Lincoln, California. In addition, land has been committed in Santa Rosa, Florida, for a future location.
Mercy Ministries’ free-of-charge, voluntary, faith-based residential program serves young women from all backgrounds, ages 13 to 28, who face issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, depression and unplanned pregnancy. Mercy also serves young women who have been physically and sexually abused, including victims of sex trafficking.
Using proven methods, a holistic approach and professional counselors in a structured residential environment, Mercy has helped thousands of young women be restored to wholeness. Mercy’s goal is to help these young women find freedom from their issues and empower them to serve in their communities as productive citizens.
