Eden Autism Services Florida, Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota Benefit from Home-Tech’s "Charity of the Month" Program

Fort Myers, FL, February 03, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Home-Tech donated $858 to the Boys and Girls Club of Sarasota in December, and $884 to Eden Autism Services Florida in January to thank customers that purchased new air conditioning units in those months. The donations were part of the home appliance service and sales company’s Charity of the Month program, which donates a portion of the proceeds from each new air conditioning unit sale to a different charity each month.

Donations are made in customers’ names to thank them for their business, instead of sending corporate gifts. Since launching its Charity of the Month program in August 2009, Home-Tech and its customers have given approximately $6,600 to local charities located from Sarasota to Naples in addition to the company’s ongoing charitable giving and sponsorship of local charity events.

“We’re especially proud that the program supported a charity in Sarasota for the first time,” says President and Founder Steve Marino. “We’ve enjoyed growing both our business and community involvement and support in the Sarasota area, and look forward to continuing both in the coming year.”

Eden Autism Services Florida also received $884 from Home-Tech customers who purchased units in January. Eden a Naples, Fla.-based non-profit provides comprehensive outreach, including program consultations and early intervention, to 12-month education for school age students and residential and employment services for adults in Southwest Florida. Home-Tech also supports Eden by maintaining their group home air conditioning units and appliances free of charge.

“There are so many good causes to support in the areas we serve,” says Home-Tech President and Founder Steve Marino. “Thanks to our customers, many more will be helped through Charity of the Month donations in 2010.”
