ABACUS Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical launched the "Count On Us To Care" campaign designed to recognize and reward companies and individuals that work tirelessly in the greater Houston community.
Abacus, which in 2018 was named an Angie's List "Super Service Award Winner" for the seventh time, will determine the winning charity based on votes, nominations and which organization will most benefit from the award. The winning charity will be awarded $1,000 in March.
While Abacus supports various local charities – The JuCan Foundation, the 100 Club, The Rose, Tomball Pregnancy Center, Camp Hope and many more – this is an open-ended opportunity for the public to show support and propel awareness for its favorite charity.
Votes can be cast at https://www.abacusplumbing.net/lp_pg/vote4yourcharity/ through Feb. 28. Depending on the flow of submissions, Abacus may choose to extend the deadline. Updates will be made via its Facebook page, and information will also be emailed to all those that submit a nomination.
"From Day One when we opened Abacus, I wanted to make sure we continually focused on giving back to those in need," says Alan O'Neill, who co-founded the company in 2003. "That's why I started the 'Count On Us to Care' program, tied directly to our slogan, 'You Can Count On Us.' The most important part of this contest is to help us highlight many of Houston's great local charities which the community 'counts on' continuously. Without the support of their volunteers, donors and fundraising efforts, which are the backbone of these charities, all their critical, valuable and heart-warming work would cease to exist. We are hoping to find and promote some of those diamonds in the rough that do incredible work while not getting enough recognition."
