Forrest Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning Inc., a family-owned business in the Phoenix area since 1961, wants to honor the men and women in our community who have served by donating and installing a new air conditioning unit for a local veteran.

Active duty military, including members the National Guard, Reserves, as well as military families, are also encouraged to apply, according to a press release.

Living without air conditioning in Arizona is not only uncomfortable, but also dangerous during certain times of the year. Many neighbors have risked their lives fighting for freedom, and Forrest Anderson believes they deserve to come home to a cool, comfortable environment at the end of the day.

Forrest Anderson is asking residents of the community to nominate a deserving veteran who needs this donation. To apply, visit ForrestAnderson.net. The person nominating will need to explain in 200 words or less why this person and/or their family deserves to win, according to the release.

“If we can make life a little easier for a local military hero and their family by replacing their old air conditioner, or installing a brand new one free of charge, that makes us incredibly happy,” said Audrey Monell, president of Forrest Anderson, in the release. “We are so excited about this giveaway, and we’re looking forward to learning about the nominees through these essays as well.”

The finalists will be announced in late October, and the public will then be encouraged to vote for the winner through the Forrest Anderson Facebook Page. The winner will be announced the week before Veterans Day.
