MILWAUKEE — Travis Refrigeration partnered with other local contractors and Building Homes for Heroes during a Welcome Home ceremony in Lehigh Acres, Florida for USMC Corporal Yancy Green. Throughout his service, Green has suffered many injuries that have impacted his mobility. His injuries require specific modifications to his home in order to live safely and focus on his recovery.
To support Green, Johnson Controls donated a YORK heating and cooling system with a Wi-Fi capable YORK touch-screen thermostat to better assist him with adjusting his home’s temperature without the need to get up. Travis Refrigeration donated the HVAC installation services for the veteran’s new home.
“Having the support of companies like Johnson Controls and Travis Refrigeration gives us the opportunity to honor injured veterans with a mortgage-free home,” said Chad Gottlieb, director of construction development, Building Homes for Heroes. “The customized amenities companies like Johnson Controls are able to bring to these homes allows veterans to live their lives in greater comfort and dignity.”
Building Homes for Heroes is a national organization that recognizes those who serve in the United States Armed Forces by supporting the needs of severely wounded or disabled soldiers and their families.
