Glendale company to give a deserving veteran a free A/C unit

Forrest Anderson hosts 5th annual contest

Posted

For the fifth consecutive year, Forrest Anderson Plumbing and Air Conditioning (Forrest Anderson), a Glendale family-owned business in the Phoenix area since 1961, will honor men and women who served or are currently serving in the U.S. military.

Forrest Anderson’s 2020 Military Hero A/C Giveaway will share the stories of local military heroes and award one veteran or active duty servicemember a free air conditioning system with installation.

Anyone can nominate a military hero by filling out a short application on Forrest Anderson’s website by Monday, Oct. 12. A company panel will select up to five finalists and share their stories on Forrest Anderson’s website and Facebook page, where members of the public can vote for their favorite Oct. 21-Nov. 4.

The giveaway is open to active duty military, retired service members, and veterans who were discharged under general or honorable conditions who own a home in Maricopa County.

“My grandfather, Forrest Anderson, started this company after serving our country in World War II and we feel it is our obligation as citizens to thank all veterans and active duty service members for protecting our national security,” Forrest Anderson president Audrey Monell stated in a news release. “By sharing their stories, we hope to start conversations about the importance of supporting military members and their families who sacrifice so much, especially when deployed.”

Ms. Monell also recognized industry partners, MORSCO HVAC/Bush Supply and Smiley Crane Service, whose contributions made it possible to run the contest. Since 2016, Forrest Anderson has worked with local partners to sponsor the Military Hero A/C Giveaway each year around Veterans Day due to the health risks of living without air conditioning in Arizona.

Finalists will be announced Wednesday, Oct. 21. The winner will be announced by Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

Forrest Anderson is located at 17225 N. 63rd Ave., Glendale.

Call 623-780-4060.
