T.Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric, a BBB A+ accredited business and recipient of nearly 3,000 five-star consumer reviews, in partnership with RAL Supply, is set to install a brand-new heating system for Cold Spring, New York, resident Vicki Calder free of charge on Dec. 23.
Calder is the first recipient of T.Webber's Heat for the Holidays donation event, in which T.Webber gifts a new heating system to a local family in need. Developed in celebration of T. Webber's 30th year in business, Heat for the Holidays will become an annual holiday tradition for the family-owned company.
After nearly a month of accepting nominations through its website and Facebook page, T.Webber selected Calder as 2019's winner. Calder is a disabled widow whose home is located less than a mile from T.Webber headquarters. Her boiler started malfunctioning last spring, and purchasing a new unit was impossible on her fixed income. Family and friends said Calder sometimes had to choose between medicine, food or heat, and often went without heat.
"This incredibly generous gift means so much to me," Calder said. "I do not deserve this opportunity more than anybody else. Thank you for reaching out and helping people like me this holiday season. This gift will keep me warm and help me focus on healing."
On Dec. 23, the T.Webber team will be installing a new oil-fired boiler heating system in Calder's home, ahead of the Christmas holiday.
"Family and community have always been important to our company culture," said Tommy Webber, president of T.Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric. "Our hope is that this annual event will be as much of a blessing to our neighbors as they've been to us throughout the years. T.Webber certainly wouldn't be the business it is today without them, and we look forward to the next 30 years of serving the Hudson Valley."
