OLATHE, Kan. - Heart to Heart International Inc., a leading global humanitarian organization, installed a cold-storage unit at its global distribution center thanks to cfm Distributors. The organization voiced its need for a cold-storage unit, and cfm decided to get its vendors involved in the project along with soliciting support from Heatcraft; Reliable Mechanical of Kearney, Mo.; and U.S. Cooler.

“They all were enthusiastic participants in helping Heart to Heart fulfill its mission,” said Tom Roberts, CEO of cfm Distributors. “Bringing all of these companies together to support such a worthy organization as Heart to Heart is extremely satisfying. It’s gratifying to know that our effort will save lives in the long run.”

Kevin Morris, refrigeration director at cfm Distributors headed up the project. The 14,000-cubic-foot refrigerated unit is expected to store life-saving medications, such as insulin, for Heart to Heart’s local and global health initiatives. Much of the hardware and labor was donated by local businesses.

“Without the support of several charitable companies, this day might never have come,” said Jon D. North, CEO, Heart to Heart. “Now we can deliver life-saving medicines requiring cold storage more efficiently to underserved people in Kansas City, in the United States, and almost anywhere in the world.”
