Luxaire announced that it will continue its support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation into 2014. The company will commit $750,000 in contributions over three years.
The Johnstone Controls-owned company first embarked on a sponsorship of Make-A-Wish in 2001. Since that time, Luxaire has donated more than $2.4 million to the organization, enough to grant nearly 330 wishes for seriously ill children.
Last year marked the 10-year anniversary of Luxaire’s support of Make-A-Wish. To celebrate a “Decade of Wishes Come True,” Luxaire brand manager Mary Mocarski and members of her senior leadership team traveled to Luxaire distributor locations to personally thank distributors for their support of Make-A-Wish.
Last year, the company sponsored wishes and events with 33 Make-A-Wish chapters across the country. One of these chapters, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, recently honored Luxaire’s commitment by presenting the foundation’s annual recognition plaque to Rodney Rushing, Johnson Controls vice president and general manager of unitary products.
“We value the opportunity to participate in the Make-A-Wish program because it enables us to make a meaningful contribution to the lives of children in the communities where we live and work,” said Mocarski. “At the same time, we’re able to offer our dealers and distributors a program that truly differentiates them in the market.”
