The Bill Howe Volunteer Team Reaches Record Numbers at San Diego Food Bank

Established San Diego Plumbing Company, Bill Howe Plumbing, Inc. Continues Their Pay-It-Forward Spirit 

Bill Howe Volunteer Team Gives Back to San Diego

January 22, 2012 San Diego, Calif. – San Diego Plumber, Bill Howe, and wife, Tina Howe know the importance of giving back to the community. On Tuesday night, more than 30 employees (approximately 20 percent of total employees), and their family joined Tina at the San Diego Food Bank on Distribution Avenue in San Diego to help feed local families in need. The “Bill Howe Volunteer Team” involves itself in community outreach at every opportunity to take care of the San Diego Community.

This Tuesday’s volunteer night at the San Diego Food Bank saw record numbers in both attendance and production. The Bill Howe team arrived at 6 PM where they were treated to a Mexican themed dinner by Tina Howe. After fueling up for a night of rigorous volunteering, employees and their families, proudly wearing their signature Bill Howe blue volunteer shirts, convened for the evening’s task. The Bill Howe team is put to use wherever needed and Tuesday’s need was potatoes. Set up in an assembly line, the volunteers are tasked with bagging potatoes that will be added to San Diego family’s groceries.  They go from pallets of 50-pound bags to individual bags that are then routed to those who need it. On average, volunteers bag approximately 3,500 pounds in the 1 ½ hour timeframe. On Tuesday night, the Bill Howe volunteers bagged 12,500 pounds. Although San Diego Volunteerism and San Diego plumber may not seem immediately synonymous, the record numbers from the Bill Howe volunteers proves it’s a winning combination.

Bill Howe Plumbing has teamed up with the San Diego Food Bank every third Tuesday of each month for the past three years.  On any given night, the team might be bagging potatoes, measuring out rice for individual family bags, sorting holiday donations or packaging groceries for San Diego families who need help. Bill and Tina Howe have encouraged the “pay-it-forward” spirit in their own family and their “Bill Howe Family” for years, believing that the company that plays together stays together. The well-known San Diego Plumbing Company has been family owned and operated since 1980. Not only are three of their daughters heavily involved in the daily operations of the company, but many employees’ family members work for the company as well.

“We were very proud of our team of volunteers this past Tuesday, they rocked it,” said Tina Howe, Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies.  “We have the highest level of teamwork on and off the clock and we attribute that to our family atmosphere. We believe it is important to involve all of our employees in our own philanthropic work. We give a lot to the community, and the greatest element of our giving philosophy is our time.”

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.
