Rinnai Donates to Gateway Baptist Church
Landmark Colorado Church Recovering from Flood Damage
PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. — Rinnai America Corp., along with Chambers Plumbing and Heating, recently helped a Loveland, Colo.-area landmark recover from a devastating flood.
The Gateway Baptist Church was under 2 feet of water and covered in mud due to the flood. Rinnai and Chambers assisted in helping the church by restoring its hot water system after Rinnai donated an Ultra Series Condensing Tankless Water Heater.
“We wouldn’t be where we are today without the assistance of numerous community members and organizations, including Rinnai,” said Jim Rice, pastor at Gateway Baptist Church. “To watch the community band together and pull off an amazing transformation in such a short time was refreshing. I can’t say enough about the outpouring of support we received. We’re thankful to Rinnai for the company’s generous gift.”
Gateway Baptist Church, which sustained nearly $90,000 in damage, reopened its doors just prior to Thanksgiving — nine short weeks after the flood occurred.
“We were honored to help Pastor James Rice and the Gateway Baptist Church community reclaim its church,” said Takashi Sonoda, president of Rinnai America Corp.
