Spreading Christmas Cheer: Bill Howe Adopts 13 Families for the Holidays!

Bill Howe Family of Companies Adopts 13 Families for Christmas in San Diego
San Diego’s Best Plumber continues to pay it forward during the holiday season joining the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego in adopt a family

December 23, 2016 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies started as a one-man San Diego plumbing company offering affordable services for the community with the highest trained specialists. Bill Howe began his company with a mission centered on family values, community spirit, and the highest care of his customers. For over 35 years, the Bill Howe Family of Companies’ has grown into one of the largest san Diego plumbing, heating & air, restoration & flood, and epoxy lining service companies in the county. And though the company has gone from one employee (Bill Howe) to over 165, they have retained their family culture, community involvement, and the same care their customers have come to trust.

Each Year, the Bill Howe Family of Companies’ hosts a holiday toy drive for children in the community. For the past two years, they have filled over 3 donation bins each year for the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots program through the generosity of the Howe’s and their employees. For 2016, they were presented with an opportunity to help families on a more personal level through the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego’s (BGCGSD) adopt a family program.

The BGCGSD has been about changing lives for over 75 years. They service over 25,000 youth in the community between the ages of 5 to 18 through academic success, character development, and healthy lifestyles within their 19 community sites. From the BGCGSD website: With 71% of our members coming from low-income families, the holidays are not always a happy time. Money is tight and there is often not enough for presents and special holiday meals. Thanks to our supporters, we are able to bring some holiday magic and joy to our members and their families.

This is not the first time the Bill Howe Family of Companies’ has participated with the BGCGSD. The Human Resource Manager’s two sons attended the after-school program at the Ron Roberts Branch through Junior High, and the mission of the BGCGSD aligns with the values of Bill Howe. “We have loved joining the after-school programs when raising awareness of healthy lifestyles,” said Julie Riddle, Marketing Director for the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “Not only do we have a personal connection and have seen the amazing work the clubs do for kids and families in the community, but we know through support of local businesses they can reach even more families and we look forward to continuing to join their efforts in the coming years.”

The Bill Howe Family of Companies joined a long list of community supporters in adopting families for the holidays. They were able to adopt thirteen individual families and enlisted employees help in buying gifts from the families’ wish lists. “I am proud to say that over 40 of our employees adopted one of the family members,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We placed the wish lists for each individual on our community board and within a day, we had most of our families fully adopted.”

Employees rallied to make this a truly special Christmas for each individual they chose, and those that were not able to shop themselves, gave the marketing team money to shop for their adopted families. They helped bring a little joy during the holidays for 60 individuals.

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.
