Bill Howe Plumbing Jumps in to Help the Boys & Girls Club’s “Little Jumps, Big Changes”

Well-known San Diego Plumbing Company is No Stranger to Helping San Diego’s Youth Achieve Success

The Bill Howe Team supports the Boys & Girls Club

March 13, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – During the month of February, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego hosted a fundraiser promoting active and healthy lifestyles. The “Little Jumps, Big Changes” campaign highlighted the importance of active lifestyles for our youth while raising much needed funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego’s mission. Thirteen Branches across San Diego County participated, and the event culminated in a simultaneous jump rope at each of the locations. Bill Howe Plumbing has had the opportunity to support the Boys & Girls Club, Ron Roberts Branch in Linda Vista in the past and was excited to join Supervisor, Joe Sorenson, again for this special event.

Promoting heart health and active lifestyles has been paramount to the Bill Howe message, and has been at the forefront for the last three years as the San Diego plumbing company has been teaming up with the American Heart Association (AHA) with the “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest. The contest raises awareness on how to lead healthy active lives while supporting the AHA. The contest officially launched on February 1 and ends March 29. The grand prize winner will receive a $250 gift card for Toys R’ Us and an invitation for the whole family to attend the AHA Beach Ball in June.

“The Little Jumps, Big Changes event was a huge success. Bill Howe Plumbing played an integral part by providing a fun and exciting “healthy lifestyles” trivia game to our members. It was an amazing way to kick off our jump roping extravaganza,” said Joe Sorenson, Supervisor, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego, Ron Roberts Branch. “Thank you to Bill Howe Plumbing for being such a positive and influential force to our youth.” Bill Howe Plumbing has been an advocate of healthy living and active in volunteerism for many years showing how in San Diego, plumbers can make a difference in the community.

As part of the San Diego plumber’s team up with the Ron Roberts Branch of the Boys & Girls Club, each student, age 5-12, took part in the drawing contest and the Bill Howe staff participated in the event with a special presentation and even joined in with fellow “jump ropers.” Bill and Tina Howe donated $500 to Joe Sorenson’s “Mr. Joe’s Challenge,” where he gave up fast food and vowed to get active alongside the kids. Their donation helped him to reach his original goal of $1,000. Because of the generous support, donations rolled in from the kids themselves and local community members and Joe was able to exceed his original goal amount raising a total of $2,933 in the month of February for The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego.

“It was special to be a part of the Boys & Girls Club’s “Little Jumps, Big Changes,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. “Not only did it align itself with our own mission of elevating healthy lifestyles in San Diego, but it’s great to know that together with organizations like the boys & Girls Club and educators like Joe Sorenson, we can make a positive impact on our future leaders.”

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.
