CENTREVILLE, Va. (PRWEB) June 15, 2020
ARS of Virginia, a local HVAC and plumbing services provider and part of the American Residential Services (ARS) Network of Brands, is providing a new water heater to Michelle Sabol, a deserving physician assistant as part of the ARS Cares Healthcare Heroes program. The program is an extension of the year-round, company-wide ARS Cares initiative, and is rewarding more than 50 free home services makeovers to healthcare professionals across the country during the current COVID-19 crisis.
“We received inspirational nominations from our community through the ARS Healthcare Heroes program, and are proud to complete these surprise home makeovers for our deserving healthcare workers,” said Mike Skourtis, General Manager of ARS of Virginia. “Our employees are committed to giving back to the community, and these installations are one way we can support the selfless support of our healthcare workers as they continue to combat one of the worst public health crises and continue to help make our community safer.”
Michelle Sabol is currently a Physician Assistant for Children’s National Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Virginia Hospital Center. These past few months have been exceptionally challenging during the pandemic. Michelle and her team have worked tirelessly to continue providing compassionate care and support to patients and their families. Prior to the COVID-19 crisis Sabol lived with her elderly parents, but not wanting to risk exposing them to the virus she moved into her own home. Unfortunately, the water heater in the new home needed to be replaced. ARS of Virginia is happy to provide much needed assistance to this local hero. The installation of Sabol’s new water heater was completed on June 12.
Following the announcement of the ARS Cares Healthcare Heroes program on May 13, family, friends, and co-workers were invited to share stories of why a Nothern Virginia frontline worker was deserving of home improvements that would deliver relief and relaxation. ARS received more than 400 nominations.
The ARS Cares initiative was launched in 2016 to cultivate positive relationships with communities where we live, work, and play. Since that time, more than 90 home services makeovers have been completed, donating more than $500,000 of HVAC systems and water heaters to deserving recipients.
