MURRAY — Angel’s Attic Thrift Shop received a generous donation Tuesday from Pella Corporation to benefit forthcoming renovations.

Jeremy Phillips and Rick Harrison of Pella presented Angel’s Attic store manager Mike Crook with a $3,400 donation to cover the cost of renovating parts of the upstairs area of the local non-profit. The donation will pay for new windows and window insulation in the upstairs storage area of the building.

Donna Herndon, a member of the Angel’s Attic board, voiced her appreciation of Pella’s contribution.

“We support the Angel’s Community Clinic and The Gentry House, so a donation like this enables us to devote the proceeds of what we sell to those two entities; it’s invaluable to us,” Herndon said.

The donation is part of a larger philanthropic effort by Pella Corporation, called the Pella Rolscreen Foundation. This initiative partners with communities across the nation in order to provide grants, invest in youth and conduct service projects where Pella members live and work.

Jeremy Phillips, human resources manager at Pella, said he learned of the need about two months ago, and the company decided to take action.

“I think it’s very important to reinvest in the community,” Phillips said. “It helps the community that we are in.”
