"In the spring of this year, our local chapter established the â€˜ACCA Cares' program to send care packages to deployed troops around the world," said Jeff Reed of Custom Air and president of ACCA-Central Ohio.
"Expanding upon that program, we developed the 'Heat the Town, Columbus!' event. With the support of our sponsors, The Columbus Dispatch, WSYX-TV/ABC-6, WSNY Radio, and Panera Bread, the event is now a reality," continued Reed.
The "Heat the Town, Columbus!" mission is to enhance the well-being of low-income residents, particularly those persons who are most vulnerable, such as the elderly, the handicapped, and children, says the association. With a fall heating system cleaning and safety check, homeowners will be able to benefit through reduced energy bills, enhanced comfort, and the mitigation of energy-related health risks. "This is yet another way to give back to our community," said Reed.
