MILWAUKEE Recently, Connelly Plumbing, Heating & Air and cfm Distributors Inc. partnered with local contractors and Building Homes for Heroes during a Welcome Home ceremony in Springfield, Missouri, for Army Sergeant Curtis Crawford. Crawford, who joined the military in 1987, sustained multiple injuries throughout his service, including a gunshot wound, traumatic brain injury, degenerative spine disease, and nerve damage. His injuries require specific modifications to his home in order to live safely and focus on his recovery.  

To support Crawford, Johnson Controls and cfm Distributors donated a York heating and cooling system with a Wi-Fi enabled York touch-screen thermostat to better assist him with adjusting his home’s temperature without the need to get up. Connelly Plumbing, Heating & Air donated the HVAC installation services for the veteran’s new home.

“We are honored to partner with Johnson Controls, Connelly Plumbing, Heating & Air, and cfm Distributors to gift a home to Sergeant Crawford and his family,” said Andy Pujol, founder and CEO of Building Homes for Heroes. “The customized amenities that Johnson Controls brings to these homes provide not only a foundation for these heroes, but a hopeful path to a bright future with the opportunity to reach dreams he may have never thought imaginable when injured.”

"Teaming up with Johnson Controls and Building Homes for Heroes gives us an opportunity to give back to real local heroes who have made tremendous sacrifices for our country,” said Donna Sexton, estimator, Connelly Plumbing, Heating & Air. “We’re grateful to have the opportunity to install a new York home comfort system donated by cfm Distributors in Sergeant Crawford’s new home.”
