In an effort to give back to the community, the PlumbersStock family dedicated time and effort searching for ways to help others. Plumbing and HVAC are what we do. Innovations in these industries can significantly improve the quality of life for both our domestic neighbors and those around the globe. Allow us to get you quickly caught up on PlumbersStock’s noteworthy efforts in the community in 2013.
Offering Help to Oklahoma Tornado Victims
After suffering $2 billion in damage, the devastated regions of Oklahoma were in need of help rebuilding their communities. With corporate headquarters in Utah, it was difficult for PlumbersStock to offer any direct help. We were able to brainstorm and come up with one way to lend a hand. Residents of the affected regions have been forced to repair and even rebuild their damaged homes and places of business. We carry a lot of the products they need to accomplish this, so to help, we offered 20% discounts across the board to those who suffered. PlumbersStock is proud to do what we can to aid our neighbors to the east and are glad that it was helpful to the individuals who took advantage of the promotion. We are pleased to have taken a small part in helping to rebuild the great Sooner state
Clean Drinking Water Project
In partnership with Elkay, PlumbersStock donated two drinking fountains (link to category/475/) to a shelter for students in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Albergues is a student housing facility where children from rural areas stay during the week while school is in session. It is too far for them to travel from home to school and back daily. The students and their families are making significant personal sacrifices for their education.
Located in Santiago and La Rivera, Albergues has been housing youth ages 4-15 for over half a century. The school is in need of updates to help improve the standard of living there. Clean drinking water is an issue, and the Rotary Club is organizing efforts to raise money. The Rotary’s efforts will improve the living conditions there. One of the top priorities is a water purification system. For more information about the project, please visit the Rotary Club’s webpage on the topic.
