For every at-home window replacement consultation State Fair goers schedule at the Great Minnesota Get-Together, Renewal by Andersen will donate $10 to Como Friends, up to $10,000.

“Working to conserve natural resources is a mission that Andersen Corporation shares with Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, which is why we’re proud to be long-time supporters of Como Friends,” says Susan Roeder, Strategic Accounts Manager at Andersen Corporation, and board chair of Como Friends, the nonprofit fundraising force behind Como Park Zoo and Conservatory. “Como is all about educating its two million visitors about how to reduce, reuse and recycle to protect the environment, values that are built right into Renewal by Andersen® products, which are made from sustainable and reclaimed materials to benefit not only our customers but their neighbors as well.”

“Como Friends is thrilled to have been selected as the recipient for Renewal by Andersen’s State Fair fundraising efforts this year,” says Jackie Sticha, President of Como Friends. “Their commitment to supporting Como Friends is one of the reasons Como can provide free admission to an annual audience almost as large as the crowds at the State Fair. It’s a powerful relationship.”
