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 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.
