San Diego Plumbers Donate Games to Local Organization’s “Game Drive”

Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. employees jump on board to help Team Parker 4 Life’s Game Changer helping to bring games to children as they receive treatment in children’s hospitals across the nation

July 31, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – Well-known San Diego plumbing company, Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. has been involved in community outreach since the very beginning. The San Diego plumber’s been a long time supporter of the American Heart Association, the San Diego Burn Institute, dedicated to pro bono plumbing work, as well as supporting local community efforts at every opportunity.

Team Parker 4 Life is an organization committed to “be a voice for the children and join in the fight against pediatric cancer.” The inspiration behind Team Parker is Parker Shaw, who was diagnosed with stage 4 Nueroblastoma in April  2013 at age 6. The Shaw family has been traveling between New York and San Diego for treatments, surgeries and medications since diagnosis, and he was declared NED (No Evidence of Disease) after 9 long months, though he still has a long road ahead of him to prevent relapse and continue treatments. The Shaw family, and Parker, have become champions inspiring their own small community, as well as thousands of people across America to “embark on a crusade” helping children with cancer and their families through education and awareness.

Team Parker 4 Life has organized several events including a month long “Game Drive,” in June–Team Parker’s Game Changer–which rallied individuals and local businesses (as well as business in other states) to donate new games, puzzles, gift cards and video games to be delivered to children’s hospitals across the nation. The Bill Howe Family of Companies enrolled their own 136 employees and joined the cause as an official drop off location and donation center. In the end, they donated over $500 worth of new games and puzzles, Toys R Us gift cards and cash.

“Community involvement is very important,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Plumbing, Bill Howe. “When we announced at our company meeting what we were participating in, our own group of local San Diego plumbers responded with cash donations and boxes of new games. We couldn’t be happier to do our part in helping raise awareness for pediatric cancer and are inspired by the Shaw’s strength and courage.”

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and Bill Howe Plumbing encourages everyone to educate themselves and help raise awareness in the community. For more information about Team Parker 4 Life, please visit www.teamparker4life.org.

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.

I have been using Bill Howe since the late 1980’s, their service has always been excellent, plumbing, heating and restoration. I am most impressed by the integrity of their employees, not only do they know their work/skill, they do not waste time, they are so efficient, they are so helpful and they are a true “service”!

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.
