Dallas, TX - From a pool of over 1500 businesses throughout North America, Budget Blinds of the Mid-Willamette Valley received the Heartand Home Give Back Award on January 11th for working with those in need in their community. Priscilla Glidewell was flown to Dallas, Texas for the international convention and received this award along with a standing ovation from over 1000 of her peers. While this award was based on events in the last ten years, Priscilla has long been a social advocate and agent for change. She started her Budget Blinds business with the vision of giving back, through it, to the community.

Budget Blinds of the Mid-Willamette Valley Gives Back
 
Priscilla Glidewell purchased her first Budget Blinds Franchise in 2006. After a few years of hard work and establishing her business, she was able to move into a large home that served as her residence, the Budget Blinds office as well as Noah’s Ark Foster Home. From 2009 to 2015, Noah’s Ark served over 27 children. Each staff person took the time to play with, mentor and guide these children. Priscilla and her team at Budget Blinds have done even more for the community beyond Noah’s Ark Foster Home. She has volunteered as Coordinator for Oregon’s “Safe Families for Children” program and as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for foster children. She is a Rotarian, Leadership Trainer for  he Ford Family Foundation and an elected City Councilwoman. Her and her staff at Budget Blinds have been involved in donating time and resources to 13 Habitat for Humanity builds, the Friends of the Old Town, training disabled workers to help them transition into skilled jobs, and much more. The impact Budget Blinds of the Mid-Willamette Valley has had in the community is staggering and greatly appreciated. We take this time to celebrate Priscilla Glidewell and her team for their award, as well as receiving the recognition they deserve for their good hearts and passion for making this community a better place to live and work.
