SAN ANTONIO — SA Youth and a family from Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio are receiving critically needed HVAC systems as Shafer Services Plus launches Shafer Serves, a new philanthropic program founded to assist San Antonio non-profits by providing complimentary HVAC and plumbing products and services.
“Safe temperatures and reliable running water are critical for healthy environments — especially for children,” said Chase Anderson, president and CEO of Shafer Services Plus. “By providing these services to local non-profits, Shafer Serves is honored to help our community by serving our San Antonio family.”
Shafer Serves is being launched by Shafer Services Plus to thank San Antonio for supporting the plumbing and HVAC company for the past 136 years.
At the SA Youth facility, six out of 10 HVAC units were broken, leaving the team to work in temps climbing over 90°F. The Shafer Team repaired all malfunctioning units and replaced a broken unit, providing over $15,000 in parts and services.
“By donating HVAC repairs and installation, Shafer Serves is helping SA Youth focus on providing much-needed supplies and educational opportunities to students who are a part of our program,” said Asia Ciaravino, president and CEO of SA Youth. “It’s been an impactful gift not only for our organization but for the youth of San Antonio.”
Boys and Girls Clubs of San Antonio has been working to ensure club members continue receiving support at home while clubs operate at limited capacity due to COVID-19. Through partnership with Shafer Serves, they were able to provide Eastside Club member Yolanda Davis and her family with a new HVAC system for their home as she is currently without central A/C.
“This HVAC donation from Shafer Serves has changed the quality of life for the Davis family and strengthens the bond that our clubs, members, and community partners share,” said Angie Mock, CEO of Boys and Girls Clubs of San Antonio. “It’s when we come together to care for one another that we experience what community can really mean.”
“At Shafer, we’re here to take care of our San Antonio family for generations,” said Anderson. “SA Youth and Boys and Girls Clubs of San Antonio are paving great futures for San Antonio’s children. Being able to provide them with HVAC services so they can continue providing meals and educational resources is a great honor for us.”
