How We Pay It Forward
Renewal by Andersen of Central NC isn’t just a business. We are an integral part of the communities where we live and work. We’re committed to making our communities better places to live – particularly for those who could use a helping hand. And we’re proud to partner with several local organizations who share the same commitment.
Each of the organizations we passionately support performs a wonderful service right here in central NC. Please visit their websites, listed below. We think you’ll be touched by the difference our partners are making in so many lives. And we hope you’ll be inspired to contribute to their cause. With a click, a call, and a pledge, you can make a difference, too.
Many of us have fond memories of playing team sports – the togetherness, the cheers from the stands, and the sheer thrill of the game. But many children with disabilities never get the chance to play. The Miracle League of High Point gives these children the opportunity to be a part of a team and play baseball, so they, too, can experience the joy of the game. If you have money or time to share, you can give local children happy memories that can last a lifetime.
“The opportunity to see your child play baseball, to do something you’ve been told they would never do, is a profound experience.”
– Wendy Brosnan, League Manager
In times of crisis, we can all use a helping hand. The Greensboro Urban Ministry lends a hand to people in need – the homeless and the hungry – providing the safety, strength, and nutrition they need to get back on their feet. All who work with Greensboro Urban Ministry – social workers, chaplains, employment specialist, staff and volunteers – help those in need to find paths to back to economic stability, personal fulfillment, and spiritual well-being. Donations from people like you are what make this life-changing support possible.
“Last month, your support allowed us to shelter 16 families with children at Pathways Center. Our families stay in private studio apartments. They stay overnight and can also stay during the day. Our goal is to provide stability, especially for the children. Thank you for making this possible!”
Here in the Triangle, hundreds of local low-income homeowners are living in unacceptably poor conditions. Rebuilding Together of the Triangle (RTT) is dedicated to providing these homeowners and their families with safe, healthy homes; they bring together volunteer labor and donated supplies to make the repairs needed to make the homes livable again.
We were proud to join RTT, Urban Durham Realty, and over 20 other local companies to renovate the home of a family in need. Our windows will help a single mother to keep her children warmer, healthier, and more secure for many years to come. But there’s more to be done; more than 450 families are still on the waitlist, and still need your help.

Young men have so much to live for – and so much to lose when in the grip of a drug or alcohol addiction. Greater Piedmont Teen Challenge (GPTC) provides hope and healing to these local men suffering from addiction by fostering a faith-based treatment that helps young men to become whole again. GPTC focuses on helping all in their program focus on becoming mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive. The wonderful work they do wouldn’t be possible without funding from their local partners – and people just like you.
“Before I came to Teen Challenge I only cared about getting high. Now God’s given me a heart to pour into others. If you struggle with addiction, Teen Challenge is the best decision you can make.”
– Patrick Link, Graduate of Teen Challenge 2013
Urban Ministries of Wake County (UMWC) engages our community to serve those affected by poverty. They provide healthy food, promote wellness, and lay the foundations of home. Last year, UMWC distributed 250 tons of food and served more than 8,000 families, including 11,000 children. Any donation you can spare will be money well-spent; more than 90 cents of every dollar received by UMWC goes directly to their programs. Last year Renewal by Andersen of Central North Carolina donated $8,000, which translates to the following:
- A week’s worth of nutritious groceries to 400 struggling families
- A year of prescription medicine for 15 uninsured adults with chronic, life-threatening conditions
- 320 nights of shelter, counseling and care for a homeless woman with nowhere else to go.
“What a blessing the Food Pantry was to me yesterday. It was the first full meal I’ve had in weeks.”
