We are so excited to announce our partnership with Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest. Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a simple mission; showing kindness, doing justice and serving those in need. They have a vision for a just world where all people can fulfill their basic needs. We strongly believe in this mission and vision and are thrilled to be partnering with them to give back.
Earlier this year, Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest received a referral from a sister church regarding an Arizona family in need. This family of 6, including a 13, 11, 6 and 4 year old, has been struggling after job layoff last year. Making ends meet was already a battle when medical issues struck. Unfortunately, COBRA was unwilling to cover these expenses, creating more financial ruin. When it felt like things couldn’t get worse, their heating and air conditioning system broke down. They’ve been without heat all winter and were terrified of the impending summer heat.
Our team at AAA Cooling Specialists was introduced to this family in February, and we were blown away by them. We immediately knew this was a deserving family that we couldn’t wait to help out. On Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019, we’ll be installing a new AC system at their home. Trane generously donated the equipment, and AAA Cooling Specialists is donating all the labor and materials required to complete the system replacement. We don’t have the appropriate words to describe how wonderful and emotional it was to tell this family about this gift. They cried. We cried. And then they graciously accepted.
We are thankful for the introduction to this amazing family. We are also relieved this introduction happened before the summer heat starts scorching the Valley. We can’t wait to share more details about installation and what it means to this deserving family. Stay tuned for more details about how the replacement goes next week!
