MEMPHIS, Tenn. — American Residential Services (ARS), a national provider of air conditioning, heating, and plumbing services, has announced an endorsement agreement with Tim Tebow. The initial agreement includes a commercial in which Tebow announces that ARS will offer special discounts for customers with matching donations to the Tim Tebow Foundation (TTF).
“ARS is pleased to strengthen its relationship with Tim Tebow and the Tim Tebow Foundation. Tim is an incredible philanthropist and community leader,” said Chris Mellon, CMO and senior vice president of marketing at ARS. “Our shared values provide us with several opportunities to work together. In addition to our involvement with TTF, we have also partnered with him and Fox’s HOME FREE to provide heating, air conditioning, and plumbing services while houses were being built for deserving heroes. Now, we’re partnering with Tim again to provide savings for ARS customers while contributing further to TTF.”
As part of the new partnership, customers who schedule an appointment through ARS.com/Tebow will receive $10 off each service/repair call for HVAC, plumbing, and energy efficiency services, while ARS donates $10 to TTF. For equipment installations, ARS customers will receive $150 off the installation and ARS will donate $150 to TTF. There is no expiration date or cap to the donations being provided to TTF from ARS.
“I have always been committed to only partnering with companies I truly believe in, and ARS is certainly no exception. From their exceptional service across the country to their unwavering commitment to serving children, ARS is the perfect partner for me,” said Tebow. “For years ARS has been committed to Tim Tebow Foundation’s mission to bring faith, hope, and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. Now with this new initiative, everybody can be a part of helping others. Simply use ARS.com/Tebow to schedule your heating, air, or plumbing service, and together we can change the lives of thousands of people with special needs around the world.”
“This partnership with Tim will be a unifying force between our 24 brands and 70 service centers across the nation,” continued Mellon. “Any customers in the ARS network will benefit from the savings on ARS.com/Tebow.”
Some of TTF’s outreach efforts include hosting a worldwide prom for children with special needs, funding international special needs adoption, providing free surgeries for deserving children at the Tebow CURE Hospital, and granting wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses. Since its inception in 2011, ARS has been the top sponsor of the foundation’s annual Celebrity Gala & Golf Classic. In February, ARS employees also rallied from coast-to-coast to volunteer as buddies for TTF’s Night to Shine, its prom night experience for people with special needs.
ARS operates a network of more than 70 locally-managed service centers in 22 states, with approximately 5,500 employees. The ARS/Rescue Rooter Network serves both residential and light commercial customers, providing HVAC, IAQ, plumbing, drain cleaning, sewer line, radiant barrier, and insulation services.
