CHICAGO — The Storehouse of World Vision hosted its 10th Anniversary Celebration of the Crystal Vision Award Breakfast on April 17, 2010, during the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show here.

The event honored Globe Union and Hajoca Corp. for humanitarian efforts benefiting American families in need. Michael Werner, president and CEO of Globe Union and Roy Pitts, the national director of vendor relations and purchasing of Hajoca Corp. were both at the event to receive the award.

Globe Union was selected for its generous donation of products to underprivileged families, the support of World Vision’s School Tools program, and for having consistent, long-term involvement with the Storehouse. Hajoca Corp. was honored for their steadfast support of disadvantaged communities. Hundreds of Hajoca’s retail locations made World Vision their key charity.
