Boston Standard Company Celebrates National Toilet Paper Day

Toilet paper drive will collect at least 2,000 rolls for Pine Street Inn

 
PRLog - Aug. 8, 2014 - DORCHESTER, Mass. -- Boston Standard Company, a plumbing, heating and cooling firm in Dorchester, MA and its partner, FW Webb will deliver at least 2,000 rolls of toilet paper to Pine Street Inn on August 26.  To celebrate National Toilet paper day, Boston Standard Company pledged to donate 50 roles of toilet paper for each heating, cooling or water heater installation it performed from late-July until August 26. In addition, FW Webb pledged to match Boston Standard Company's donation, up to 500 rolls.

Pine Street Inn is a transitional program in Boston that provides permanent supportive housing, job training and placement, emergency shelter and street outreach to more than 1,600 Boston-area homeless men and women daily. Joseph Wood, owner of Boston Standard Company, and his wife Laura, developed the idea for this creative celebration of National Toilet Paper Day. "People who receive federal food assistance cannot use the funds to buy basic sanitary supplies like toilet paper and soap. Food pantries and social service agencies see a high demand for these necessities, but often run short."

In addition to its donations, Boston Standard Company is offering its customers a chance to participate in the toilet paper drive. The company will deduct $5 from their maintenance or service bill for every roll of toilet paper its customers donate, up to $30 per visit. "A roll of toilet paper isn't very expensive, but some of our neighbors are forced to choose between necessities," says Wood. "By donating toilet paper to service providers like Pine Street Inn, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of people in need here in Boston."

Boston Standard Company provides 24-hour full-service residential heating, cooling and plumbing services throughout the Boston metropolitan area. Boston Standard Company participates in a number of current rebate and incentive programs for homeowners who are looking to replace or upgrade their heating and cooling equipment. Besides lowering the cost to purchase and install these systems, the programs can help homeowners reduce lifetime operating costs.
