Budget Blinds is excited to announce that this Saturday, April 27th, we will be featured on NBC’s hit home improvement series George to the Rescue! The episode will air at 10am EST on NBC 4 in major cities across the country – please check your local listings for details.

George to the Rescue features home improvement guru George Oliphant as he tackles remodeling projects that benefit families and community organizations in need. On this episode, our window franchise business partnered with the show to help renovate the Boys and Girls Club of Newark, New Jersey as part of our continuous efforts to build meaningful relationships with the community.

Every day, over 200 teens gather at the Boys and Girls Club of Newark to seek guidance and education from caring community role models.  The “teen room” is the center of the kid’s social atmosphere that hosts a variety of programs and simultaneously fosters responsibility, character and discipline. Unfortunately, the room was in need of a major renovation and the Boys and Girls Club lacked the resources to move forward with one. That’s where Budget Blinds and George to the Rescue came in!

It was such an honor to come together with the show’s team and also with the Boys and Girls Club of Newark to help provide a positive atmosphere for the kids. “Using a solutions based approach, we were able to maximize every square inch of the room while incorporating stylish design elements to make it a trendy and comfortable hangout for teens,” says CEO of Budget Blinds, Chad Hallock. “We are very excited to have had the opportunity to work with such a deserving organization in support of future generations.” With the help, hard work, and commitment put forth by Budget Blinds of Westfield franchisee David Powell, our window franchise was able to install motorized graphic shades on every window in the teen room. Each features an inspirational quote from a community or celebrity role model to help keep the kids ambitious. The graphic shades themselves were made possible through a generous donation from our trusted shade manufacturing partner Draper Inc. so a big thanks to them!

NBC’s George to the Rescue averages over a million viewers per episode, and we are thrilled to be part of such an impactful effort. Tune in to NBC 4 this Saturday, April 27th at 10am EST and watch Budget Blinds and George to the Rescue help create a safe haven for teens at the Boys and Girls Club of Newark!
