My Plumber & The Arlington Food Assistance Backpack program
During October, My Plumber Heating and Cooling employees turned their attention
to Arlington Food Assistance Center’s Backpack Program for Children
Living in Homeless Shelters. This program provides preparation free (or
microwavable) food for the weekends and holidays, to children who frequently
don’t have easy access to a real kitchen.
The plumber service in Arlington and the heating and air repair technicians,
as well as My Plumber Heating and Cooling’s office staff, worked

paid $5 for the privilege of wearing denim to work, Arlington plumbers
and Arlington heating and air technicians collected food with dollars
off coupons for 5 cans of food, and the management team paid $5 a head
for each employee who dressed in costume for Halloween. In a move that

of food and $230 that they used to buy easy open microwaveable meals,
dried fruit, crackers and juice for the backpack program. The drive was
For November and December, My Plumber Heating and Cooling, Fredericksburg
plumbers and Stafford heating and air technicians have decided to focus
on raising food and support for the SERVE program. On board for the program,
My Plumber Office staff will have a favorite cold weather gear day. Our
technicians including Stafford plumbers and Stafford heating and air repair
techs, will be collecting those five cans of food. The executive management
team have not told us what they have up their sleeves yet, but you can
bet it will be something good.

SERVE then please take a moment to “like” My Plumber Heating
