"I'm sure we can all be thankful for the people throughout the many years in the history of this country who have made incredible sacrifices in defending America."
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) October 26, 2010
Thompson Plumbing, Heating and Cooling announces it has raised $30,240 this year to support Disabled American Veterans.
Last year, Wesley Holm, Thompson Plumbing, Heating and Cooling’s owner, was inspired to do something to help our country’s veterans. “I’m sure we can all be thankful for the people throughout the many years in the history of this country who have made incredible sacrifices in defending America,” said Holm. “I wanted to try and do something special for the many veterans in our community who have served on behalf of this country,” he explained.
Thompson’s donation of $22,470 to the DAV last year was so inspiring and supported by so many in the community that it would have been irresponsible to not continue to support our troops for many years to come.
In keeping with the commitment to serve the community, Thompson launched its 2nd Annual Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Campaign on August 1st. As last year, a donation for every plumbing, heating, cooling and drain call tune up in August and September is given to the Disabled American Veterans and for every purchase of a heating and air conditioning system, $100 is donated to the DAV. With the help of the community, Thompson has exceeded the 2010 goal of $25,000.
As a result of the overwhelming support of Thompson’s loyal Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky customers, the Thompson team was able to raise a grand total of $52,710 to the DAV since 2009.
“Thompson Plumbing, Heating and Cooling is once again showing exceptional generosity with this donation. It will help us tremendously in our mission of providing free services for disabled veterans and their families,” said Marc Burgess, Executive Director of DAV’s National Headquarters. “In doing so, they’ve increased awareness in our cause and engaged their customers on our behalf. As a national organization with historical roots in Cincinnati, we’re grateful for what Thompson is doing to Stand Up for Veterans.”
