Extreme Heat Threatens Closure of Arizona Food Bank Charity

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

Goettl Air Conditioning saves the day by keeping charity open with timely donation of new AC units!

PHOENIX (July 13, 2015) – Goettl Air Conditioning, a leading heating and air conditioning company in Arizona, announced today the company donated two commercial evaporative air conditioners to Max’s Community Closet in July helping the charity to keep its doors open during the height of the hot summer months. The project, including the purchase and installation of the units, is valued at $12,000. Timing for the donation couldn’t have been more ideal as the store was facing closure due to temperatures inside the building exceeding 120 degrees making it unsafe for employees and the public. “After my wife told me about the store’s forced closure due to extreme heat, I knew I had to make contact right away”, said John Onorato, General Manager for The Sunny Plumber and Goettl Air Conditioning. Onorato quickly made contact with Max and his mother Lisa Hadsall, founders of Max’s Community Closet and together with Goettl company chairman, Dan Burke, arranged for the removal of the inoperative units and the installation of two state-of-the-art commercial evaporative air conditioning units. “Words cannot express how grateful we are. On behalf of Max’s and Extended Hands Food Bank, thank you! Your generosity has allowed us to continue to serve our community,” said Hadsall. “I am very proud that our team has rallied around our ‘Positive Impact’ initiative at Goettl. We endeavor to make a ‘Positive Impact’ on our customers, employees, industry and our community each and every day.  Helping Max’s Community Closet help others is the essence of our ‘Positive Impact’ culture”, said Kenneth Goodrich, President of Phoenix Peach LLC which owns Goettl Air Conditioning and The Sunny Plumber. Max’s Community Closet is a local nonprofit, charitable foundation selling low-cost new and gently used clothing, furniture and household items supported solely by donations. The non-profit store was created by 11-year-old Max Hadsall who had asked his mother, Lisa ‘what people who had to get food from the food bank did for other life essentials’. Having no definitive answer for him, Lisa encourage Max to talk to Pastor David Iverson who runs from the food bank and they helped him open the store. The operation assists individuals and families struggling to make ends meet in the Fountain Hills and surrounding communities and whose profits support the Extended Hands Food Bank. The facility is open to the public Fridays and Saturdays. For more information and to find out how you can help Max’s Community Closet and Extended Hands Food Bank visit http://www.ehfb.org/.
