This donation is helping during a time when many people have no idea what to do
Lyme, NH and Oak Creek, CO (PRWEB) January 9, 2009
BioHeatUSA, a leading distributor of wood burning residential central heating equipment based in Lyme, New Hampshire and Oak Creek, Colorado, has contributed $10,000 each to two non-profit organizations to help people with their home heating bills.
Lift-Up of Routt County, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and Tri-County Community Action Program's Fuel Assistance Program, in Lebanon, New Hampshire, are the beneficiaries of the two donations.
"It's a wonderful and generous act," said Lift Up Executive Director David Freseman. "We are seeing an increase in all kinds of human needs, and staying warm is one of them."
"This donation is helping during a time when many people have no idea what to do," said Angel Jackson, fuel and electricity assistance program director of Tri-County Community Action.
While experiencing strong sales of the wood boilers they distribute, BioHeatUSA's owners and employees felt they were in a strange situation - benefiting as others profoundly suffered due to the high cost of home heating oil.
"We were motivated by the fact that our alternative energy heating business is doing well this year, yet there are others among us who are unable to heat their homes," said company president Scott Nichols.
BioHeatUSA's staff and owners feel good about helping the two nonprofits reach those who need help staying warm.
"It adds more purpose to coming to work each day when you are part of something bigger," added company vice president John Redmond. "We hope that other businesses which are doing well in spite of the current economic downturn will consider doing something similar."
