21st Annual Heat for the Needy: A “One Day Miracle”

TUDI Mechanical Systems and Dollar Bank team up to provide free furnaces to local area families again this winter as part of our annual Heat For The Needy program.


What is Heat for the Needy?

Each winter, there are families across the Pittsburgh region that have no heat or are living in unsafe conditions due to failed or outdated heating systems. The Heat For The Needy program, described as a “One Day Miracle”, combines the time and talents of employees and their families as they provide and install new furnaces in the homes of those needy families, all in a single day, and at no cost to the recipients.

Over the past 20 years, the Heat For The Needy program has provided and installed over 225 new heating systems to families throughout the region. The program is made possible through the generous efforts of over 125 volunteers at TUDI Mechanical Systems, local suppliers and business partners who have donated supplies and services.  This year we are excited to partner with Dollar Bank for this important program.

We are currently seeking nominations for low-income individuals and families in need. Once all nominations are evaluated, TUDI will choose nominees to receive new furnaces. Nominations can be received from family members, friends, neighbors and even strangers who wish to touch someone’s heart during the holiday season.

Deadline for nominations is Dec. 15th 2019.
