You could say Mercy has been blessed by a “win-win” situation. Last week, WIN Home Inspection Sierra paid forward their raffle winnings earned at an annual company conference and presented Mercy a $10,000 check to help provide care and counseling to young women struggling with life-controlling issues.
WIN Home Inspection of Madison, Alabama, recently held their annual conference in Houston, Texas. The conference included the raffle of a 48-month lease on a new car and the opportunity for the raffle winners to donate dollars earned to their charity of choice. The raffle raised $7,000 and WIN Home Inspection generously added $3,000 to raise the total to $10,000.
WIN Home Inspection Sierra won the raffle, choosing the Sacramento, CA location of Mercy as their charity of choice. WIN Sierra co-owner Brian Kelley had recently attended a luncheon at the Mercy Sacramento home and learned of Mercy’s work and mission. After winning, he and his business partner John Gross agreed they would designate their donation to Mercy.
“The cause outweighs the gift. It’s an amazing honor to be able to present Mercy Ministries with such a well-deserved and necessary donation, and we’re so proud to be doing it on behalf of WIN,” says Kelley.
“WIN Home Inspection is truly honored to be a part of donating to such a worthwhile cause and is excited to have a hand in helping these young women heal and grow,” says Steve Wadlington, President, WIN Home Inspection.
WIN Home Inspection began in 1993, offering home inspection business franchises in the Pacific Northwest. Noted as one of the fastest growing home inspection companies in the country, WIN has since expanded across the US with 187 locations in 31 states.
“Mercy depends on donations from generous businesses and individuals like WIN in order to continue providing complimentary services to the women we work with,” says Kerri Phillips, Community Relations and Development Manager. “Donations like this help us to transform lives and create hope. We’re so grateful to the WIN Sierra team and the entire company.”
