Bill Howe Sponsors Healthy Nutrition Demo for Boys & Girls Club to Support the American Heart Association

Local San Diego plumbing company continues to support community and promote healthy lifestyles

March 31, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies has grown into one of the largest, low-cost family- owned and operated San Diego plumbing companies. Part of their success has been to consistently give back to the local community through volunteerism, youth outreach, and strategic partnerships. One long-term partnership the San Diego plumber has embraced is with the American Heart Association promoting healthy and active lifestyles in the community while raising much needed awareness of stroke and heart disease.

The Family-owned San Diego plumbing company has been teaming up with the America Heart Association for the past 5 years, with a commitment through 2015. They provide a generous annual donation in addition to community outreach to help bring awareness of the organization and all it does to help the San Diego community. Additionally, the company and the AHA developed the unique “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart Drawing Contest raising awareness on how to lead healthy active lives aimed at children ages 5-12 and their families. The contest officially launched on February 1 and ends April 4. 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.

For the past two years, the Bill Howe Family of Companies has involved one local Boys & Girls Club in their “Healthy Hearts” contest. The Ron Roberts Branch of the Boys & Girls Club in Linda Vista is also on a mission to teach healthy nutrition and active lifestyles to its students and together with the San Diego plumber has built a strong collaborative relationship during like-minded events. In 2013, the company assisted in the Boys & Girls Club’s local fundraiser, “Big Jumps, Little Changes,” and this year together with chefs from the AHA, hosted a healthy nutrition demonstration for 80 students to align with the club’s healthy lifestyles week.

On Thursday, March 27, Bill Howe & AHA representatives, together with a host of volunteers and one local chef, set up four fun & healthy food stations as well as a fun nutrition facts and prize wheel. The kids learned how to make each fun recipe, taste their own creations and everyone won a prize.

“The best part of an event like this one is to be a part of the discovery process with the kids,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “They discover that they do like vegetables and fruit, and there are healthy alternatives to chips and soda. It is rewarding to know we are helping to improve nutrition choices in our most important asset-our children.”

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.
