FERRIS, TX --- Jackie Kimbrell’s Ferris home used to be a dilapidated, run-down house built in the early 1900’s. Its condition was so poor, the City of Ferris recommended the home be condemned and bulldozed in the summer of 2010.

After hearing of Kimbrell, a 71 year-old single grandmother, and her plight with the city through a CBS 11 news story, Duane and Cheryl Tippit, wanted to help. They offered their services and vowed to get other businesses to volunteer their aide as well.

Brennan Enterprises heard Kimbrell’s story, felt her heartache, and immediately wanted to help. In association with the newly formed non-profit, Responding In Kindness, an organization aimed at helping the elderly and underprivileged with home repairs, Brennan Enterprises donated an entire set of Brennan Executive Series vinyl replacement windows supplied by NT Window for Kimbrell’s home… all completely free of charge!

Through various generous contractors that donated their supplies, time, and labor, Jackie Kimbrell’s house underwent a dramatic transformation.

 

“We were happy to help Jackie improve her home,” said Kerry Brennan, owner of Brennan Enterprises. “We got to know her through the process and she is such a kind, loveable woman. Brennan was honored to assist in this project.”

“The Responding In Kindness organization is wonderful. It was great to collaborate with their organization and ours, Windows of Opportunity,” stated Ryon Ray, founder of Windows of Opportunity.

“It was our first time working with them and we had the best experience. It’s always nice to give back to the community and those who are just a little down on their luck. The way companies and contractors came from all over North Texas to assist Jackie was amazing. We hope to help Responding In Kindness with other projects in the future,” said Ray.

Homeowner Gets Windows of Opportunity Project Makeover - March 1, 2011

The draft in Renee Gill’s two-bedroom home on Woodrow Street was so noticeable that on windy days she could stand inside her living room and literally feel her hair bouncing on her neck. That has now changed, thanks to the replacement of 10 of her windows, courtesy of Brennan Enterprises and NT Windows.

Gill’s 60-year-old home had recently undergone improvements through the City of Arlington’s Weatherization Assistance Program with the installation of new doors, attic and wall insulations, and roof vent replacements. But Gill’s home needed new windows, which was more than what could be funded by a program that allots $6,500 per home.

In stepped Brennan Enterprises and NT Windows, which selected Gill as part of their “Windows of Opportunity Project Campaign.”

The project began last year when Brennan Enterprises was looking for a way to make a positive difference by donating windows and doors to a family in need. Monte Ramey of Brennan contacted the Arlington Housing Authority to help locate a family. Meanwhile, NT Windows became a partner in the effort. The first recipient was Bernice Pittman’s home in East Arlington.

A crew of a dozen workers arrived at Gill’s home on Feb. 26 around 8 a.m. About two hours later, 10 new energy efficient windows were installed.

“I just can’t believe it,” said Gill, who watched the work along with two young grandchildren who often spend weekends with her. “I can’t tell you how much I needed this.”

Gill received more than windows. Brennan Enterprises owner Kerry Brennan and NT Windows CEO Ryon Ray presented Gill with a $1,000 check to help with mortgage payments.

“We wanted to take it a step further this year,” said Monte Ramey, General Manager of Brennan Enterprises. “We wanted to do more than just do the repairs.”

Arlington Interim Community Services Director David Zappasodi said the Windows of Opportunity Project is just another example of a public-private partnership that works.

“It is a privilege to witness the impact that acts of charity by the private sector have on the lives of citizens in need,” Zappasodi said. “The generosity of Brennan Enterprises and NT Windows is a testimony of the powerful life change that can occur through a public private partnership.”

Gill said the initial weatherization has already lowered her energy bills and can’t wait to see how much the windows reduce them even more.
“This partnership has provided this homeowner with a complete weatherization package,” Zappasodi said. “In the long run it will improve the livability of this home and lower the energy footprint for this homeowner.”

 

Businesses Provide Struggling Arlington Woman Window of Hope

By BILL HANNA

Star Telegram

ARLINGTON -- For the last three years, Bernice Pittman's life has been in a downward spiral. In 2007, her daughter was shot and killed, and her mother died a few months later. Pittman has struggled to cope ever since. She has been disabled and unable to work.

Living on a fixed income made it impossible to make the necessary repairs to her east Arlington home. The small brick residence's roof needs to be replaced. There are cracks on the floor and leaks on the walls and the ceiling.

Just a few months ago, Bernice Pittman almost lost hope when Arlington officials told her that the repairs needed to fix her home exceeded a $24,500 federal grant.

"I was watching my home crumble around me, and there was nothing I could do about it," Pittman said.

Then, seemingly out of nowhere, her luck changed. Two local window companies -- Brennan Enterprises of Arlington and NT Window of Fort Worth -- offered to replace her windows for free.

The installation of the energy-efficient windows Saturday will allow the other repairs on her home to be completed. "When it looked bad, my niece and I prayed on it," Pittman said. "It was like our prayers were answered."

Outside the box

Brennan Enterprises came up with the idea to donate windows before the Christmas holidays.

"It was like, 'Let's go outside the box house and install free windows for a needy family," said Monte Ramey, Brennan's general manager.

Brennan contacted Arlington officials, and the company quickly got its supplier, window manufacturer NT Window of Fort Worth, on board.

"Actually when Monte brought up the idea, we were thinking the same thing," said Ryan Ray, manager of NT Window. "We as a company have been extremely fortunate in recent years."

NT Window donated the windows, and Brennan Enterprises provided the installers. The retail cost for the supplies and labor would be at least $6,500.

With the windows in place, David Zappasodi, assistant director of Arlington's community services department, said the rest of the repairs can be completed with the $24,500 grant.

The project will be sent out for bid. Pittman will decide which one to choose. Once a contractor is selected, the work should begin about a week later and take about 30 days to complete. The money comes from $1.4 million in HUD grants Arlington receives annually to fix low-income homes.

In recent years, the city has repaired 80 to 90 homes each year.

Wrong place, wrong time

Pittman has spent the last three years of her life trying to cope with the slaying of her 23-year-old daughter, Sheena Perkins. She was killed while sitting in a vehicle outside an after-hours Arlington nightclub. The shooter was firing at the driver and struck her instead.

"She was in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people," Pittman said.

A Dallas man was later sentenced to 15 years in prison for the crime. Her daughter's death, coupled with the death of her mother the same year, was too much for Pittman to handle. She was unable to work. Paying the mortgage on her home, which she bought 10 years ago, also became a challenge.

"I didn't quite have a nervous breakdown, but I had some emotional and physical issues," Pittman said. "I had a job working customer service with Aetna, and it got where I couldn't deal with people. Some days I can deal with people, and some days I can't really be around people. It's hard."

But the impending repairs have given her hope. With the new windows, she believes that her energy costs may be cut in half.

For the two local businesses, the donation may be simply the beginning. Both are talking about making the donation an annual event.

"We would love to have a window block party, where we would go in and locate a low-income neighborhood where everyone needed window replacements and where our efforts would be multiplied," said Ray of NT Window. "We have been working with Habitat for Humanity for 10 years and would like to work with them or some other group."

If the program goes forward, Brennan Enterprises would either work again with Arlington or another social service organization.

"If there was a way we could leverage our giving that helps someone and puts them in a rehab program, that would be really neat way to help others," Ramey said.
