Default Charity work/ Giving back

Every year, our company adopts 1-3 families. We purchase them gifts, food , and clothes. This year, we were contacted by THaW ( the heat and warmth fund) in Detroit. A senior citizen living in the city has not had working heat or hot water for 2 years!!!

I went to the home to investigate the problems. The water heater is from 1983. The boiler is destroyed ( 145000 btu hot water system).

After speaking to 2 of my suppliers, we were able to procure a new Lochnvar Solution series hot water boiler and a Rheem 40 gallon water heater. All of this will be installed at no charge on December 28th.

I am not posting this for attention to our acts. I am posting to remind us all of how fortunate we are to have all that we do. Heat, hot water, a job, etc..... Never take it for granted. If you have the capabilities to give back to your community, you are very lucky to be able to do so.

Our job is demanding and difficult. But it provides us with everything we need. Karma is real.

Happy holidays all.

I also participated several times with THAW through local 98. Many of our contractors donate vans, tools, and supplies. Vendors also get involved. Its nice that you guys are helping out like that.

The locals in our area are really well known for getting involved in our community. While we are not a union shop, i have nothing but respect for those who are.

It is also wonderful that you personally, have done this as well.

Hope you have an amazing holiday!!!
