Mike Lencioni has been in the spirit of giving.

The owner of MLI Shutters and Blinds is donating his time and service to assist Manteca senior citizens. For free, he and a network of experienced repair technicians will take care of any window covering needs.

This service will be available through Christmas Eve, Dec. 24.

Lencioni’s MLI Shutters and Blinds located at 2343 W. Yosemite Ave., Manteca, and is an authorized Hunter Douglas showcase dealer and repair center.

“We’re in our first year as being a certified repair center,” Lencioni said on Friday.

He and his son, Jacob Foster, can handle 99 percent of the repairs for shutters and window blinds from the back shop of their business.

The family-owned and operated MLI Shutters and Blinds have been around since 1989, starting from out-of-the-home endeavor to a space along Manteca’s industrial Drive.

It was over two years ago that the business relocated to the West Yosemite Avenue. It’s close to the ACE train station and a straight shot to the Del Webb retirement community, according to Lencioni.

“We conduct plenty of business (for seniors) at Del Webb,” he added.

The specifics for the free program are as followed:

•Seniors must be age 65 and older and a resident of Manteca.

•The product must be in repairable condition.

•If the blind or shade requires a part, a charge for the part will be tacked on.

•The product must be brought in for repair at the MLI facility.

•The limit is two repairs per customer.

•Repairs must be for personal place of resident and not a rental or commercial property.

MLI Shutters, in addition, has committed to donating 50 percent of all regular repairs to Hope Ministries and the San Joaquin Food Bank.

Lencioni strongly believes that charity begins at home.
