The Foundation for Senior Living (FSL), a nonprofit, charitable foundation based in North Central Phoenix that assists elderly and low-income residents throughout Valley, recently was the recipient of a donation of parts and money from Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning Repairmen.
Goettl, a leading heating and air conditioning company in Arizona, donated $750 in money and parts to FSL to help support the organization’s annual Evaporative Cooler Start-Up. The donation included $500 in air conditioning unit parts, and an additional $250 to sponsor a volunteer breakfast.
The donation was part of an annual event in which HVAC businesses team up with FSL and other sponsors to bring together leaders in the industry to fix and maintain evaporative coolers at elderly and low-income households throughout the Valley. Goettl, which has previously participated in the event directly, chose to take a more active role by providing the necessary parts and funds that help make the event possible each year.
“We’ve been fortunate to participate in this event in years past, and we’re excited to contribute to such a wonderful cause,” said Ken Goodrich, Goettl’s managing partner. “We wanted to take our commitment to serving seniors and low-income families to the next level. By donating the evaporative cooler parts, we equipped technicians with the parts they needed to provide residents with the cool air they need during the hot summer months.”
The organization partners with HVAC industry members one Saturday each spring to clean and repair evaporative coolers for those in need of service.
