Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning Repairmen, a leading heating and air conditioning company in Arizona, announced today the company donated $750 in money and parts to The Foundation for Senior Living in late March to help support the organization’s annual "Evaporative Cooler Start-Up." The donation included $500 in air conditioning unit parts, and an additional $250 to sponsor a volunteer breakfast for the 24th annual event on March 29.
The annual event, in which HVAC businesses team up with the Foundation for Senior Living and other sponsors, brings together leaders in the industry to fix and maintain evaporative coolers at elderly and low-income households throughout the Valley. Goettl, which has previously participated in the event directly, chose to take a more active role by providing the necessary parts and funds that help make the event possible each year.
“We’ve been fortunate to participate in this event in years past, and we’re excited to contribute to such a wonderful cause,” said Ken Goodrich, Goettl’s managing partner. “We wanted to take our commitment to serving seniors and low-income families to the next level. By donating the evaporative cooler parts, we equipped technicians with the parts they needed to provide residents with the cool air they need during the hot summer months.”
The Foundation for Senior Living is a nonprofit, charitable foundation and member of Catholic Charities, that assists elderly and low-income residents throughout the Phoenix Valley. The organization partners with HVAC industry members one Saturday each spring to clean and repair evaporative coolers for those in need of service.
“We would like to thank Ken Goodrich, Dan Burke and the good guys at Goettl,” said Katie Smith, program director for the Foundation for Senior Living Home Improvements. “We truly appreciate their continued support.”
