MILWAUKEE — On September 29, C&C Heating and Air Conditioning and York Factory Direct partnered with Building Homes for Heroes during a Welcome Home ceremony in Glenside, Pennsylvania, for Army Staff Sergeant Veronica Hally. She served more than two decades of service, including tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, and she investigated hundreds of deaths and worked with the FBI to track terrorists across the globe. Her investigative experiences earned her many accolades, but also have left Staff Sergeant Hally with severe PTSD and anxiety that caused her to medically retire from the military in 2019.

To support Staff Sergeant Hally, Johnson Controls and York Factory Direct donated a York heating and cooling system with a Wi-Fi enabled York touch-screen thermostat to better assist her with adjusting his home’s temperature without the need to get up. Veteran-owned C&C Heating & Air Conditioning donated the HVAC installation services for the veteran’s new home, and Google Nest Pro donated a variety of smart home products.

Will Cordero, president & founder, C&C Heating and Air Conditioning, spoke at the Welcome Home ceremony about the honor it was to support a fellow veteran.

"We truly can’t give enough thanks and gratitude to heroes like Staff Sergeant Hally who keep our country safe,” said Doug Cordero, vice president, C&C Heating and Air Conditioning. “We feel blessed to have the opportunity to help her and her family be comfortable in their new home.”

“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 they may have never thought imaginable when injured,” said Andy Pujol, founder and CEO of Building Homes for Heroes. “We are honored to partner with Johnson Controls, C&C Heating & Air Conditioning, and York Factory Direct to gift a home to Staff Sergeant Hally and her family.”
