MEMPHIS, Tenn., May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Honoring healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis, ARS, one of the nation's largest providers of air conditioning, heating and plumbing services, announces its ARS Cares Healthcare Heroes program. Rewarding HVAC systems and water heaters to more than 70 recipients in 24 states prior to the start of this summer, the program is an extension of ARS Cares, which provides a new system to deserving homeowners suffering without heat, A/C or water heaters.
Requesting submissions from the general public to identify healthcare workers in need of a new HVAC system or water heater, individuals can make nominations for the ARS Cares Healthcare Heroes Program via ars.com/ars-cares.
"Everyday thousands of healthcare workers are confronting COVID-19, putting others first and making tremendous personal sacrifices," said Luis Orbegoso, President and COO of ARS. "Our brave healthcare workers deserve to have their homes be an environment in which they can recharge. The Healthcare Heroes Program will help to ensure those most deserving of appreciation are receiving a new HVAC system or water heater to make them as comfortable as possible during this stressful time."
Open immediately, the nomination period will close on Friday, May 29. ARS's national network of brands will then select the recipient in each market and complete installation of the new system the week of June 8.
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 90 home services makeovers have been completed, donating more than $500,000 of HVAC systems and water heaters to deserving recipients.
