American Residential Services (ARS), a provider of air conditioning, heating, and plumbing services, is honoring active and former Military across the country with its ARS Cares Saluting Our Veterans program. More than 25 veterans and their families will be the recipients of a new HVAC system or water heater in advance of the winter months.
“ARS Cares Saluting Our Veterans program is all about recognizing the selfless sacrifice on behalf of our veterans as they serve our country,” said Scott Boose, CEO, ARS/Rescue Rooter. “To read the nominations and see the outpouring of support communities have for these brave men and women was heartwarming. It is our honor to do this for them, and we hope this small token of recognition demonstrates our gratitude and appreciation for all they have done.”
Following ARS’ announcement on Sept. 29, family, friends and co-workers were invited to share stories of why they felt the nominees were deserving of home improvements that would help provide a higher quality of life at home, under the ARS Cares Saluting Our Veterans program. Local ARS branches then selected recipients and installations began in November. In addition to the Saluting Our Veterans Program, ARS is also committed to the hiring of Veterans. Since 2017, ARS has hired at least 250 veterans annually and is looking to double that number in 2022.
Below are a few examples of deserving recipients across the U.S.:
