News Coverage

The company earned the Maury S. Frankel Award for Philanthropy.

| August 22, 2013

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Senske Services was awarded the first Maury S. Frankel Award for Philanthropy. The award was presented to Senske at this year’s annual Christmas Décor Conference in Las Vegas. Senske earned the award through its Christmas decorating services for deserving families, as well as its involvement with local charities and fundraising activities.

For several years, Senske has been committed to offering complimentary holiday decorating services for military families in the markets they serve through Christmas Decor’s annual Decorated Families program. Each year, Decorated Families finds 200 families of deployed service men and women across the country and decorates their homes for Christmas.

Senske Services owner, Chris Senske, who personally accepted the award for his company, explained, “Through Christmas Décor, we have been able to make the holidays brighter for deserving families who are missing a loved one.” He also says the idea for the program was proposed by his staff. More information about the Senske tradition of holiday lights may be found on the company’s website at Senske's Holiday Lighting services.

The Maury S. Frankel Award for Philanthropy was named in memory of late Christmas Decor franchise owner Maury Frankel, who showed passion for the Decorated Families program. The organization intends on bestowing the award on a deserving franchise at their annual conference every year.
