Melissa Taylor of Bill Howe Heating & Air Follows in Generous Footsteps of Bill and Tina Howe

San Diego HVAC Employee Begins Giving Initiative Early to Send Soldiers Home for the Holidays

Melissa Taylor of Bill Howe Plumbing

April 5, 2013 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing continues to encourage “paying-it-forward” spirit in all employees and plumbers in San Diego, CA. The company started with one man and one truck over 30 years ago and has grown into the Bill Howe Family of Companies serving most of San Diego HVAC, restoration and flood services and all plumbing. Bill and Tina Howe have retained the quality and trust of a small family-owned and operated business, focused on giving back to the community, without sacrificing service.

In addition to a never-ending dedication to local community outreach, Bill and Tina Howe are adding the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station to a long list of organizations they wish to help. The Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station, together with freedom station, has a mission of helping transitioning soldiers; Military Heroes in transition that have returned home injured and/or disabled. The organization is near to Bill Howe employee, Melissa Taylor. She has a long history supporting men and women in the military; many members of her family are in the military including one of her sons serving in the United States Marine Corp, and her father who is retired from the USMC.

While the government helps to care for them medically, there is a sometimes a gap in the holistic care they need. Melissa’s response speaks to this need; reuniting them with friends and family during a time of the year that can prove so lonesome in the best of circumstances. “So far we have raised over $800 for the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station,” said Melissa Taylor of the San Diego HVAC company, Bill Howe Heating & Air Conditioning. “In just two short weeks, everyone has proved they care and want to help. We have even raised our original goal amount and expect to exceed it with no trouble, we can’t wait to present, not just a check, but a thank you to as many military men and women as we can for the sacrifice they have made.”

The original goal for Melissa’s fundraising initiative is set at $2000; however, in the first week, through the generosity of all the company’s plumbers in San Diego, CA, she has raised over $125.00 plus an anonymous donation from one of Bill Howe’s customers. Melissa expects to exceed the original goal amount and make a difference in many soldier’s lives. “This is all so exciting, and I thank you, Melissa and Bill Howe Plumbing from the bottom of my heart for coming on board and being a part of this journey,” said Judy Sexton, on the Board of Directors for Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station, “We will never let you go.”

The Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station seeks to support our “warriors” in a number of ways to improve quality of life and ease the transition from military service to civilian life. They assist in four main groups: seriously injured just returning home; those suffering post-traumatic stress disorder or traumatic brain injury; those undergoing physical therapy, and warriors who have been medically retired and remain in our community. Their mission is to be “a hand up, not a hand out.” The service they offer for transitioning military is paramount as they leave service, often wounded, and begin to rebuild a life in a culture so different from the climate in which they sacrificed for their country.

“The men and women in our military have made so many sacrifices for our benefit and helping them is the least we can do,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “I am so proud that we have cultivated a company full of caring individuals who want to spread the giving spirit; it is very exciting what we can all do together.”

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

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.
