MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- American Residential Services (ARS), a privately-held national provider of air conditioning, heating and plumbing services, had nine East Coast service centers pull together in order to support the victims of Hurricane Florence. Their campaign, titled "Pack-A-Truck", called upon their employees and respective communities for donations like water, toiletries, and non-perishable food items. Each branch packed service trucks and donated to local food banks to supplement their community outreach efforts.
ARS/Rescue Rooter has a history of helping their communities during times of crisis; Hurricanes Harvey and Irma devastated many of the company's territories in 2017, and those respective branches of ARS were quick to support with similar campaigns and disaster relief efforts. Additionally, the ARS corporate office, located in Memphis, TN, is quick to donate to the American Red Cross and create organic campaigns to assist their employees and communities nationwide.
The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina in Wilmington, NC, received donations from Blue Dot, ARS/Rescue Rooter Manassas, ARS/Rescue Rooter Richmond and RS Andrews of Tidewater. Likewise, ARS/Rescue Rooter Atlanta, ARS/Rescue Rooter Georgia, Allgood Plumbing, Electric, Heating and Cooling, ARS/Rescue Rooter in Charleston and ARS/Rescue Rooter in Columbia will deliver donations to the Horry County Food Bank in Myrtle Beach, SC, by next week.
ARS/Rescue Rooter Wilmington experienced flooding and damage at its location, so the support is much appreciated. "At ARS/Rescue Rooter, we feel privileged to have the opportunity to help those in need," says Scott Kacic, East Zone President of ARS/Rescue Rooter. "We are extremely thankful to the community, our customers and our employees for their donations to help those affected by Hurricane Florence."
