ARS, one of the nation's largest providers of air conditioning, heating, and plumbing services, announces its ARS Cares Saluting Our Veterans program. In special recognition of Veterans Day, ARS/Rescue Rooter and its network of brands are recognizing the heroes who bravely have or are currently serving our country by awarding free HVAC systems and water heaters to deserving men and women across the company's network in 24 states.
ARS is requesting the help of the general public to nominate veterans who are in need of a new HVAC system or water heater, as individuals can make nominations for the ARS Cares Saluting Our Veterans Program via ars.com/ars-cares.
"Our Veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country, and at ARS we consider it our privilege to give back to these courageous men and women," said Scott Boose, CEO, ARS/Rescue Rooter. "These individuals and their families deserve to have their homes be a place of comfort and refuge, and we feel this program is a meaningful step in making that possible. In addition to the Saluting Our Veterans Program, ARS is also committed to the hiring of Veterans. Since 2017, ARS has hired at least 250 veterans annually, and we look to double that number in 2022."
Open immediately, the nomination period will close on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021. ARS's national network of brands will then select recipients in each entry market, and selected veterans will begin to be notified the week of Oct. 18, 2021 with installations happening in early November in honor of Veterans Day.
The ARS Cares initiative was launched in 2016 to cultivate positive relationships with communities where we live, work, and play. Since that time, more than 150 home services makeovers have been completed, donating more than $1 million of HVAC systems and water heaters to deserving recipients.
