Michael and Dina Burwell have a special place in their hearts for children.
Before the couple became owners of Budget Blinds in Colorado Springs, Dina had a long career in early childhood education. She witnessed firsthand the difference between children who grow up in loving, stable homes and children who grow up in turmoil.
In addition, Dina and Michael both have a long history of volunteering for nonprofits.
“Bettering the lives of children, especially the underprivileged, is something we are passionate about,” explained Michael Burwell. “While we are out working hard in our business, often six and seven days a week, volunteer time can get compromised. Giving to organizations such as CASA means we can assure that volunteer and charity work continues unhindered.”
In order to stay focused on customer and employee satisfaction at Budget Blinds, Michael and Dina began seeking out an organization to partner with – one that supports children in the local community.
“We were introduced to CASA of the Pikes Peak Region by its ED, Angela Rose, who happens to be a Budget Blinds customer,” Michael continued. “One of our criteria for giving is the ratings by third-party groups that scores nonprofits by where the money goes. We felt confident about CASA of the Pikes Peak Region.”
Budget Blinds became a CASA Business Partner in 2019. It’s a win-win situation. CASA benefits greatly from the support of business partners like Budget Blinds, and Michael and Dina get to continue making a difference in their community even though the bulk of their time is dedicated to running a franchise that consistently receives 5-star customer reviews and “best workplace” awards from the workforce.
The company’s large selection of name brand blinds, shades, shutters, drapery, and automation comes with warranties, and in most cases with the exclusive Budget Blinds no-questions-asked-guarantee.
If you are looking to update the windows in your homes, it’s worth checking out the company that not only customizes its service to meet the unique needs of your home, but also customizes its giving to meet the unique needs of your community’s children.
