Petro Home Services is dedicated to taking care of its customers' home service needs and supporting the needs of its local communities. That’s why Petro Home Services is launching its Warm Home program this holiday season.
Millions of people throughout the Northeast struggle to pay their heating bills. The average American family spends 2 to 3 percent of its income heating its home. A low-income family spends 10 to 15 percent on home heating. The discrepancy lies in the fact that low-income families earn less than their neighbors. Having a warm home to come home to at the end of every day shouldn’t be a luxury. It’s a necessity.
“We are thrilled to run our Warm Home program this holiday season to help deserving families in need enjoy a warm home. However, it goes beyond that for the Petro Home Services team," commented Joe McDonald, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing for Petro Home Services. "This program engages our customers and local community, enabling them to share their personal stories about deserving neighbors that they know and truly want to help. More importantly, it's about all of us, as a community, helping those who are in need of the most basic essential, a warm home."
Petro kicks off its Warm Home program on November 13th, 2015 by encouraging customers and community members throughout the company's service areas in DC, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Virginia, to visit petro.com/warmhome and nominate an individual or family in their neighborhood which they feel deserve a season's oil or propane fill of up to 1,000 gallons. Nominations must be submitted by December 8th, 2015. The Petro Home Services team will then choose one household in each state which will get their oil or propane fill in time for the holidays. Recipients must sign Petro's media release and will be announced on December 15th, 2015. Visit petro.com/warmhome for further details, terms and conditions of the Warm Home program.
Joe McDonald added that "Everyone on the Petro Home Services team is excited to be a part of this program, which will help warm the homes and hearts of deserving neighbors in need and increase awareness about the importance of having a warm home. The Warm Home program demonstrates what our company is all about, one that cares about its community.”
