Tools for Plumbers

Bill Howe Collecting Tools from San Diego Community for Plumbing Training Program in Ghana
Local San Diego plumbing company joins mission to raise awareness of health and safe plumbing in Ghana

December 27, 2017 San Diego, Calif. – Bill Howe Plumbing has been an established company serving San Diego for 38 years. Operating from the mission to provide the highest quality work, the highest trained plumbers, and fair and honest prices, it is no wonder that they have been chosen by their local communities as the best San Diego plumber. The company also has a giving spirit and routinely donates their time, resources, expertise, and financial contributions to many different local organizations and charities.

Their mission does not stop at home in their own backyard, however. Coming across a recent arrival in PMMag.com by Julius Ballanco, Jaime Howe had the idea to take their giving spirit global. “The article resonates with everything that we are about,” said Jaime Howe-Stolis, Bill Howe Office Operations Manager. “I thought it was a great opportunity to do what we do for our own team; provide tools that can make their learning better and safer; give them resources that we take for granted.”

The ultimate project, Tools for Plumbers in Ghana, has already made an impact and it is expected to grow over the next month just in time to send the tools with Julius and the Anidaso Health Mission in February 2018. Mission Valley Pipe & Supply House is joining the cause and using their influence with suppliers to collect power tools, and Bill Howe Plumbing is starting off with a $1,000 tool donation for the 4-year program.

Bill Howe knows that plumbing protects the health of the nation. This is why they pay for 100 percent of the tuition and training for their plumbers to attend the 4-year federally accredited journeyman plumbing academy through the San Diego Plumbing, Heating Cooling Contractors Association. “I would like to see every San Diego plumbing contractor licensed and employing trained field employees,” said Bill Howe, President. “We have a responsibility to protect our own community, but we can’t ignore that access to safe water and safe sanitation practices is something that everyone has.”

The original article, Training Plumbers in Ghana by Julius Ballanco, P.E. can be read online at PMMag.com. You can also see Human Resource Manager, Amber Rush, discuss the project on CW San Diego Morning Extra Wednesday, December 27.

Visit Anidasohealth.org to read more about the Anidaso Mission helping the community of Ghana through 100 percent volunteer doctors and staff. This February will mark their 7th mission to the region.

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
