The Bill Howe Family of Companies Walking to Save Hearts with the AHA

Well-known San Diego Plumber preparing for 2014 American Heart Association Heart Walk W/ company fundraiser

August 13, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies has been a part of the local community since 1980. Beginning with just one plumber offering simple drain cleanings in Pacific Beach, they have added additional divisions in restoration & flood, heating & air as well as growing into one of the premier San Diego plumbers. Part of their success has been an unwavering dedication to cultivating a “pay-it-forward” spirit in their business, community and family.

The San Diego plumber has been a long-time supporter of the American Heart Association. Since 2010, they have been hosting a 90-day “Howe” Healthy is Your Heart drawing contest, which reaches out to children ages 5-12 and their families to promote healthy and active lifestyles. Entrants can win the grand prize, a $250 gift card to Toys ‘R Us, and four runners up also receive $100 gift cards. The company also sponsors the AHA “Beach” Ball each year with a donation of $25,000 annually. Additionally, they will be taking part for the 3rd year in the AHA Heart Walk this September.

The AHA raises funds throughout the year with several different events including the 23rd annual Walk, the Association’s premiere national walking event, which will take place on Saturday September 13 at Balboa Park. The Heart Walk promotes an active lifestyle and heart health, while also celebrating heart disease and stroke survivors. Individuals or teams raise funds, which go directly to lifesaving efforts in San Diego helping to fund stroke and cardiovascular research and education programs.   The Bill Howe Family of Companies will be participating for the third time in 2014 and have raised their own fundraising goal to $5000 (the goal in 2013 was $2400) as well as inviting the entire company and their families to participate.

“We are especially excited for the Heart Walk this year,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “We are entering into our third year of the Bill Howe wellness program and really seeing the impact of positive messaging and promotion of healthy active lifestyles in our own company.”

The event will be held on Saturday, September 13, 2014. Opening ceremonies begin early at 6:50 in the morning at Balboa Park. The event is pet and family friendly, and includes the “Miracle  Mile,” a one-mile “Survivor” walk to honor all those who have been affected by heart disease and stroke. If you would like to make a donation to help San Diego plumber, Bill Howe, the Bill Howe Team, or wish to join “Howe’s Got Heart” Heart Walk Team, visit their AHA Team Page (link)

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!

Restoration & Flood

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.
