Heat U.P. Wisconsin Nominees Sought
If you know someone who could use a helping hand keeping their home warm, local participating Lennox Dealers want to hear from you. For the sixth year in a row, dealers are participating in the Heat U.P. Wisconsin program, a project of the Wisconsin and Upper Michigan Lennox Dealers as a way of giving back to their communities. “We’re looking for a family who could use a helping hand, perhaps a veteran, an elder or disabled or someone who just needs help and we’re calling on our community members to help us,” noted Dave Chatmon, Lennox District Manager. Chatmon considers this neighbors helping neighbors. Since its inception in 2010,the program has contributed over $1.6 million in heating systems to over 400 Wisconsin and Upper Michigan families. Independent Lennox Dealers are
family-run, community-based businesses that are active in their communities. “We’re local and we care about Wisconsin and Upper Michigan and the people who live here,” continued Chatmon. To nominate a family, go on line to www.heatupwisconsin. com or stop in at a local participating Lennox Dealer and pick up a form. Simply explain why this family should have a new furnace and submit it before August 28. The installation will be on October 3. This project is supported by Lennox Industries, who will donate up to 100 furnaces, local participating dealers, who will supply the materials needed to install the furnace and their employees who are donating their time and talent. There is no cost for the installed furnace to the chosen recipients.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors We need your help to help . . . We’re joining the Lennox Dealers of Wisconsin and the U.P. in installing free high efficiency Lennox gas furnaces in the homes of families who need a helping hand. Furnaces are installed at no charge to the recipient and are donated by Lennox, our company and our employees. It’s hometown caring from your hometown dealer.
Who are they? Only you know. Help us find them... perhaps someone has lost a job, is ill or injured, handicapped, an elder or widow, or a veteran. Or, you may know a dedicated community leader, volunteer or someone who thinks of others first and should be recognized. Help us learn about them, tell us their story, and make a connection.
