Abbotsford company sets $150,000 fundraising goal

Phantom Screens in Abbotsford celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and, to mark the occasion, they hope to raise $150,000 for Habitat for Humanity.

The company has partnered with the organization to raise funds for Carter Work Project 2017, which has a goal to build 150 homes across all Canadian provinces and territories during July.

The project is named for former U.S. president Jimmy Carter and first lady Rosalynn, who have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity for more than 30 years.

Phantom Screens began on July 2, 1992, when its unique retractable screen design was conceived in a small garage in Abbotsford.

Today, they remain innovators in their field and continue to “practise good stewardship.”

“Our ambition is to positively affect people’s lives and make a difference. How we act as a corporation is more than just about making money; it’s about our community,” says CEO Esther De Wolde.

Phantom Screens has not only contributed financially to the Habitat for Humanity goal, but they have volunteered their time as well.

A few employees will even travel across Canada this summer to build homes alongside Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter.

Habitat for Humanity builds homes in partnership with low-income families, providing them with affordable, no-interest mortgages.
