Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling has joined other local contractors and Building Homes for Heroes at a welcome home ceremony in Avon, Ind., for Army Sergeant First Class Gary Pearson. The ceremony that was held at 689 Weeping Way Lane, Avon, Ind., was open to the public. Johnson Controls donated a complete YORK heating and cooling system and Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling provided installation of the system for the veteran’s new home.
“The support of companies like Johnson Controls and its YORK heating equipment contractors like Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling enable our organization to reach more injured veterans in need and help them begin to rebuild their lives,” says Chad Gottlieb, director of construction development, Building Homes for Heroes.
Building Homes for Heroes is a national organization that recognizes the sacrifices of men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces by supporting the needs of severely wounded or disabled soldiers and their families. The organization strives to build or renovate homes and gift the homes to severely injured veterans nationwide, mortgage free.
“Speedtown Comfort was overjoyed when asked to help on this project. When we got the call, there was no hesitation to help one of our veterans who give us the freedom to live in this country,” says Tony Wilson, vice president, Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling.
