Bill Dillard, founder and CEO of Mechanical Services Inc. (MSI), presented a $60,000 check to Frontline Outreach Inc. president Arto Woodley Jr. during ceremonies at the 23rd Annual MSI-Frontline Outreach Golf Tournament Benefit held recently at Orange County National Golf Center & Lodge, Orlando, Fla.

This event marked the company’s 23rd consecutive year of support for Frontline, during which time MSI and its business associates have contributed over $425,000 to the Orlando-based charitable organization. Said Dillard, “We are proud that MSI’s longtime business partners have once again answered the call by generously donating a record $60,000, representing a 44 percent increase in monies collected over last year’s record-breaking total. This outpouring of generosity enables Frontline Outreach to strengthen families through early childhood development, leadership development, and preparation of Central Florida’s future workforce.”

Frontline Outreach is a ministry dedicated to development of leaders with a vision for success and service. It offers education and leadership programs for youth and families in urban Orlando. Each year, 1,500 inner city children and families benefit from the work of Frontline Outreach. Its team also works with the children’s families and offers parenting classes, job training, GED, and more.

Founded in Orlando in 1974 by Dillard, MSI began as a three-person air conditioning service company and has grown into a company serving many of Florida’s major corporations. MSI offers predictive maintenance and service, system commissioning, microbial mitigation, building automation, Fast-Trac™ system replacement and design-build construction. Recognized as one of the nation’s most innovative industry leaders, MSI has pioneered building science thermal graphic imaging and thermal graphic predictive maintenance and documentation.
