Students in the Lorain County JVS heating, ventilation, and cooling program volunteered their time in September to support the 12th Annual “Heat and Plumb the Country” project.
They worked alongside contractors to perform water audits, plumbing repairs, and maintenance and safety checks on furnaces and appliances for 50 elderly, disabled, or low-income homeowners and veterans in the Greater Cleveland area.
ACCA and PHCC, two non-profit associations comprised of HVAC and plumbing contractors, sponsored the event.
“Heat and Plumb the Country was a perfect opportunity for my students to use their technical skills and help people who were desperately in need of their services,” said JVS instructor David Morgan. “I’m proud of the way these students stepped up and donated their time to a very worthy cause.”
