Our Community Involvement

Giving Back to the Communities that Support Our Business

Everything that My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical does for the communities it serves is grounded in the firm belief of the company’s owners, R. Wendell and Mark Presgrave, that giving back to the community is simply the right thing to do. The most well-known of My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical’s charitable activities is its Warm Hands and Full Hearts Food Drive and Food Drive Challenge. Over the past four years, the company has collected an amount of food equal in weight to seven adult male Asian elephants—nearly 28 tons. The Food Drive Challenge encourages other service companies to start their own food drives. An action plan, posters, a timeline, and other supporting materials are available free at www.warmhandsandfullhearts.com.

My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical is involved in many other efforts for the community. For example, we regularly issue a press release full of valuable information on winterizing outdoor hose bibs. My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical employees often spend a Saturday teaching Boy Scouts what they need to know to earn their Plumbing Merit Badges. Activities include sponsorships, blue-jean days for various causes, posters that highlight a variety of organizations, etc.

Some of our community involvement initiatives include:

  • The Fourth Grade Challenge – My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical challenged 4th graders to write about the importance of fresh drinking water. The reward was a $50.00 gift card to Toys R Us and a lighted globe for the teachers involved.
  • Sending representatives to schools to talk about plumbing, and for career day and job fairs
  • Sponsoring community sports teams, school plays, church activities, and fundraisers (e.g., Ducks Unlimited)
  • Internal fundraising among employees for causes such as breast cancer awareness, collecting school supplies for needy children, Heifer International, March of Dimes, and Transitional Housing Barn (a local non-profit that educates mothers of minor children so that they can support their families)
  • Community education through press releases on topics such as sump pump maintenance, plumbing-related spring cleaning tips, checking heating and air conditioning system filters, and jammed garbage disposals

In addition to planned community activities, My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical offers spontaneous assistance to individuals. My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical’s technicians know that if they walk into a dire situation, such as when children or the elderly are involved, there is a threat to health, and the customer has no way to pay for repairs, the technicians can call in and receive authorization to perform the work at no charge. Over the years, many people have expressed doubt that the company could stay in business while performing so much pro bono work, but paradoxically, My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical thrives.

Ongoing Charitable Efforts

One of the greatest challenges My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical faces is not being able to get involved in every worthy cause that comes to the company’s attention. It seems that for every endeavor that My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical chooses to support, there are a thousand other causes, organizations and groups that deserve help, but frequently don’t get it. My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical has recently begun an effort to advocate for the many wonderful non-profit organizations that demonstrate the values and motivations My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical honors. The company provides a spotlight whenever possible for these organizations.

The rewards to My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical from its community involvement have been tremendous. For example, according to the Scout Master, the kids who have come to My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical to earn their Plumbing Merit Badges talk about their plumbing adventure for weeks, and everyone who gets involved in teaching the class enjoys the experience, as well. Employees who volunteer together develop a unique camaraderie which benefits the entire company. My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical’s reputation among customers and within the industry has been enhanced by the company’s community involvement. In fact, My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical has received several awards, including the Mayor’s Small Business Award (37-145 employees category) from the City of Manassas; First Prize in the Business Division, Acacia Federal Savings Bank’s Nice Guys Award; and the Circle of Love Award from Transitional Housing Barn.

Encouraging You to Get Involved

Giving back to the community has proven to be a win-win situation for My Plumber Heating Cooling & Electrical and those it helps through its many activities.

  • Jonathan and Genti are our go-to experts!

    “We took advantage of an inspection promotion from My Plumber, knowing our 50+ year old house had some concerns. Genti arrived and pointed out which valves and fixtures were aging, and patiently explained a potential path forward to avoid any problems. We'll make a plan and look forward to having Genti back to update our home. Then Jonathan arrived, and he was great at looking at the furnace and our crazy RELAC system, which he was familiar with. He changed our filter and helped me to understand how the furnace worked with the NEST and made sure it was in top shape. Our furnace is fairly new, but he was outstanding at explaining routine maintenance and how we can keep it running in top shape. What a great guy! I'm super impressed with your employees! I'm so delighted with MyPlumber and this care in looking out for our older home, I signed up for the Priority Club today. Thanks to Jonathan and Genti for keeping our peace of mind with our aging house systems, and being so patient with my questions and our curious pets.”

  • Called on Saturday. Fixed on Saturday.

    “Jermane (spelling?) showed up, was friendly and quickly inspired confidence and trust. He showed me what he thought the problem was and then got my approval. It seems he solved the problem. I’m happy with the response and the work. My Plumber will be my first call if I have another requirement.”
