Bill Howe Continues Support at Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank

Bill Howe Plumbing Creates New Video to Support San Diego Food Bank and the Bill Howe Volunteer Efforts
Well-known San Diego plumber continues to pay it forward with the latest video highlighting the San Diego Food Bank

April 27, 2017 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe started his sewer and drain company in 1980 focusing heavily on the property management industry in the coastal communities. After Tina Howe joined the team, the Bill Howe brand was born and they began cultivating their mission to promote healthy and happy employees, honest services at affordable rates, and giving back to the San Diego community in which they worked, lived and were raising their daughters. After 37 years, the company has grown into a multi-division award winning company with 170 employees.

The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County. Last year, the Food Bank distributed 22 million pounds of food, and the Food Bank serves, on average, 370,000 people per month in San Diego County. Each year, the Food Bank welcomes over 28,000 volunteers to help sort and distribute donated and purchased food products to help their mission of supporting residential shelters, youth programs, senior citizens, low-income families, and military families throughout the county.

Bill Howe Plumbing has been volunteering with the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank since 2010. On the third Wednesday of every month, a group of 30-50 employees, together with their friends and family, spend two hours at the distribution center sorting, bagging fruit and vegetables, and making senior boxes. Inspired by the mission set forth by the San Diego plumber when he began the company in 1980, the entire company gets involved and each month a new leader steps up to rally the employees and get involved.

“We began volunteering at the food bank because it gave us the opportunity to offer community service to our employees and their families,” said Bill Howe, President of Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We are proud to be a part of helping the food bank support San Diego families in need.”

To further support the San Diego Food Bank, the team at Bill Howe wanted to share with San Diego how fun volunteering can be, and a great team-building opportunity for any company. Anyone can get involved. The video highlights the volunteer team in action and interviews Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank CEO, James Floros, as well as members of the dedicated Bill Howe Volunteer team. View the Bill Howe & San Diego Food Bank Video on their YouTube page.

“Getting involved with the Food Bank has been such an amazing opportunity for us,” said Tina Howe, Vice President Bill Howe Family of Companies’. “Our team has a great time while giving back to the community, and each month we have so many caring individuals showing up to do some good.”

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
