MEMPHIS, TN—(Marketwired – November 08, 2016) – American Residential Services (ARS), a Memphis, Tenn. based, privately–held national provider of air conditioning, heating and plumbing services, is giving back to military veterans in need, as well as recognizing military veterans in their organization, as part of a Veterans Day initiative.
ARS will be donating dozens of casseroles to the veterans at Alpha Omega Veterans Services, a 501(c)(3) non–profit charitable organization headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee that assists military veterans to reintegrate into society, often after achieving recovery and rehabilitation from debilitating mental and physical conditions. “It is a privilege to be able to serve those who have selflessly served our country,” says Chris Mellon, ARS Chief Marketing Officer. The casseroles are stored and distributed at AOVS to their veteran clients, many of whom do not have the means to prepare a home cooked meal. “The volunteers and donations from American Residential Services have been invaluable to our organization. Something that seems so trivial is truly the most impactful,” says Cordell Walker, Executive Director of Alpha Omega Veterans Services. Learn more about AOVS at alphaomegaveterans.org.
In addition, ARS is adding veterans to the list of recipients of their “ARS Cares” plan: donating a HVAC unit or water heater to a household with that need.
ARS/Rescue Rooter understands the importance of both employing and honoring active and retired military personnel. “It is truly an honor to employ the men and women who have fought for our freedom,” says Dave Slott, ARS President and COO. “Our employees who are veterans already know the value of teamwork, communication and organization.” ARS also recognizes their employees for their service, and offered many thanks for the veterans' service.
