ARS of Wilmington, a local HVAC provider and part of the American Residential Services (ARS) Network of Brands, is providing a new HVAC system to Christina Whitley, a deserving Customer Care Health Worker 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 Franklin Felton, General Manager of ARS of Wilmington. “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.”
As a Customer Care Health Worker at Wilmington Healthcare, Christina Whitley has continued to provide her patients with heartfelt care throughout the current crisis. In addition to concerns for her family’s health during this difficult time, Christina and her husband Ronald have also struggled with no air conditioning in the home they share with their five children. The couple recently purchased their first home together. Unfortunately, shortly after moving in, the HVAC system in their new home quit working. Unable to afford to replace the system, the family has been doing the best they can, not knowing when they would be able to get a new HVAC system. The installation of Whitley’s new HVAC system was completed on June 10.
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 Wilmington 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.
