Last summer was the first year for Andreas Plumbing's "Give the Gift of Warmth" Heater Giveaway . When asked why they have decided to make this an annual event, Danielle Andreas, Andreas Plumbing co-owner, shares, "We are a family-oriented company that has been very blessed to have achieved success and growth as a result of our amazing, loyal customers. Last year, we wanted to do something to give back to our community and touch people's lives in a deeply meaningful way. The Heater Giveaway seemed like the perfect way to do this, but at that time, we could not even begin to imagine the positive impact that this giveaway would have on so many lives. There was such an overwhelming response by not only the number of entries but also by the community. Each entry read by our judges brought them to tears to the point that we wish we could have helped them all. The most rewarding part was awarding the prize to our winner. This hardworking mother of two had unexpectedly lost her husband, had an old, inefficient heating system, and just needed a bit of light and hope during a very difficult time. On award day, we were all there to give her the prize and to celebrate her. She was so very grateful, relieved and felt so much support. We cannot even fully describe the emotion in the room that day. But, the look on her face, her heartfelt gratitude and the awareness that we had given this woman and her family so much more than a new heating system was an incredible feeling. We all know someone who is facing some kind of challenge right now and is just praying and wishing for some type of assistance and hope. By entering your nominee(s) in this giveaway, you are helping us to make his/her life better and wish possible."
