HVAC construction equipment manufacturer Johnson Controls has renewed its sponsorship of Building Homes for Heroes, a charity that provides housing for wounded and disabled military veterans.
Working with distributors and contractors, Johnson Controls donated 13 HVAC systems that were installed free during 2014. Johnson Controls said it plans to provide HVAC market equipment to 12 families this year.
“All of us who have been involved with the Building Homes for Heroes program during the past year are thrilled to know that our relationship with the organization will continue this year,” said Liz Haggerty, vice president and general manager of Johnson Controls’ Unitary Products Group. “What better way for us as a company to live out our commitment to the communities where we live and work than by supporting the brave men and women who made tremendous sacrifices on our behalf to protect our way of life in these same communities?”
Chad Gottlieb, director of construction development for the charity, said it depends on company donations to fulfill its mission.
“The support of companies like Johnson Controls and the skills of York contractors go a long way toward bringing relief to our wounded veterans,” Gottlieb said. “The donation of quality materials in the homes we renovate and construct ensures we are able to affordably help our veterans lead more comfortable, independent and productive lives.”
