TUDI Mechanical Systems and Dollar Bank will provide and install 14 free furnaces to Pittsburgh area families on Saturday January 18th as part of their annual Heat For The Needy charity program.
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there are families across the Pittsburgh region that have no heat or are living in unsafe conditions due to failed or outdated heating systems.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 deliver and install new furnaces in the homes of those needy families, all in a single day, and at no cost to the recipients.
This year’s campaign drew in an overwhelming response, and can truly be attributed to the kindness of others. Nominations were received from family members, friends, neighbors and even strangers who wished to touch someone’s heart during the holiday season. After careful consideration, including interviews and visits to homes across the region, Tudi Mechanical selected 14 families to receive new furnaces.
Over the past 20 years, the Heat For The Needy program has provided and installed over 235 new heating systems to families throughout the region. The program is made possible through the generous efforts of over 150 volunteers at TUDI Mechanical Systems, local suppliers and business partners who have donated supplies and services.
