we can’t ignore that access to safe water and safe sanitation practices is something that everyone has.

Bill Howe Plumbing has been an established company serving San Diego for 38 years. Operating from the mission to provide the highest quality work, the highest trained plumbers, and fair and honest prices, it is no wonder that they have been chosen by their local communities as the best San Diego plumber on multiple occasions and can be seen in the Bill Howe Difference. The company also has a giving spirit and routinely donates their time, resources, expertise, and financial contributions to many local organizations and charities.

Their mission does not stop at home in their own backyard, however. Coming across a recent article in by Julius Ballanco, Jaime Howe had the idea to take their giving spirit global. “The article resonates with everything that we stand for,” said Jaime Howe-Stolis, Bill Howe Office Operations Manager. “I through it was a great opportunity to do what we do for our own team; provide tools and resources to help them succeed; give them resources that we take for granted.”

The ultimate project, Tools for Plumbers in Ghana, mission is to collect power tools nad plumbing resources to send to the 4-year plumbing school in Ghana. Reading about the students installing entire plumbing applications by hand is sobering. That is why Bill Howe is rallying the community to donate power tools and plumbing resources in time for the Anidaso Health Mission's next trip in February 2018. Mission Valley Pipe & Supply House is joining the cause and using their influence with suppliers to collect power tools, and Bill Howe Plumbing is starting off with a $1,000 tool donation for the 4-year program.

Bill Howe knows that plumbing protects the health of the nation. This is why they pay for 100 percent of the tuition and training for their plumbers to attend the 4-year federally accredited academy through the San Diego Plumbing-Heating-Cooling-Contractor's Association. “I would like to see every San Diego plumbing contractor licensed and employing trained field employees,” said Bill Howe, President Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. “We have a responsibility to protect our own community, but we can’t ignore that access to safe water and safe sanitation practices is something that everyone has.”
