Geothermal and water source heat pump manufacturer WaterFurnace has donated $38,000 to the United Service Organization of Indiana, a nonprofit organization that helps American troops and their families around the world.

Carl Huber, WaterFurnace’s vice president of corporate quality, presented the check during a recent news conference at the company’s corporate headquarters in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Huber was joined by members of the 122nd Air National Guard, WaterFurnace employees and dignitaries from the USO.

“Once again, we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to present a check to the USO,” Huber said. “We’re proud to have such a close partnership with the USO of Indiana, as well as the 122nd Fighter Wing. We thank our valued suppliers for joining us in our fundraising efforts.”

WaterFurnace raised the proceeds during its 28th annual Supplier Golf Outing in September, which also included a silent auction for a variety of items donated by local businesses. Officials at USO said most of the donation — the largest single contribution it has received — will help provide programs and services to military personnel throughout Indiana. 

Since 2008, WaterFurnace has raised nearly $225,000 for the nonprofit.
