Ranck Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning to Provide Free Heating System to Lancaster Family
Lancaster, PA – This winter Ranck Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning, in partnership with United Way of Lancaster County, will be donating and installing a new high-efficiency heating system and water heater for a Lancaster County family in need.
The inaugural Warm Home, Warm Hearts Program has been established by Ranck and United Way as part of their commitment to helping our neighbors in Lancaster County who are facing winter’s chill without a reliable heating system, and on Saturday, Feb. 1 members of the Ranck team will install a new heating system for the homeowner.
“Ranck has always believed in supporting and giving back to this great community,” said Mike Frey, President & CEO, Ranck, Inc. “Our team members also care deeply about our community and fully support and encourage our company’s involvement. Warm Home, Warm Hearts is just a natural extension of that support and marries what we do so well on a daily basis with a meaningful community initiative.”
“Warm Home, Warm Hearts demonstrates a value shared by both United Way and Ranck and its suppliers,” said Kevin Ressler, President & CEO, United Way of Lancaster County. “We are excited to begin this new initiative with Ranck to help a family stay safe and warm through the winter months.”
In addition to the free installation of the new system by Ranck, Weinstein Supply and APR Supply will donate the furnace and water heater, respectively.
“Weinstein Supply was thrilled at the opportunity to partner with Ranck and join the Warm Home, Warm Hearts campaign,” said Christopher Roda, Weinstein Supply. “As a proud member of the Lancaster County community, this initiative is in line with our core values with giving back especially to those in need.”
In November and December United Way solicited nominations for a deserving family to receive the heating system. Submitted nominations were judged by a panel from United Way, with one recipient chosen. The chosen submission detailed how the homeowner battled an electrical fire, numerous medical issues and a house break-in, with no insurance, while trying to renovate a home in Lancaster with an outdated and highly inefficient forced air furnace.
