Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling joined other local contractors and Building Homes for Heroes at a Welcome Home ceremony in Avon, Ind. for Army Sergeant First Class Gary Pearson on May 25. The ceremony was held at 689 Weeping Way Lane, Avon, Ind. 46123 and was open to the public. Johnson Controls donated a complete YORK heating and cooling system and Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling provided installation of the system for the veteran’s new home.

“The support of companies like Johnson Controls and its high-quality YORK heating equipment contractors like Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling enable our organization to reach more injured veterans in need and help them begin to rebuild their lives,” said Chad Gottlieb, director of construction development, Building Homes for Heroes.

Building Homes for Heroes is a national organization that recognizes the tremendous sacrifices of men and women of the United States Armed Forces by supporting the needs of severely wounded or disabled soldiers and their families. The organization strives to build or renovate quality homes and gift the homes to severely injured veterans nationwide, mortgage free.

“Speedtown Comfort was overjoyed when asked to help on this project. When we got the call, there was no hesitation to help one of our brave veterans who give us the freedom to live in a great country, said Tony Wilson, vice president, Speedtown Comfort Heating and Cooling.
