Lochinvar Lends a Helping Hand


by Lochinvar | 06/23/2008

Lochinvar Corporation, a manufacturer of high efficiency water heaters, boilers, and pool heaters, generously responded to the Wilson County Christmas for All collection, donating gifts and food for needy families.

Lochinvar employees donated 612 toys, 834 food items, and a check for $834. “The check for $834 was a wonderful bonus as it was used to buy gifts for the older children who are most often left out,” says Tom Clark, a representative of Wilson County Christmas for All. “We have been singing Lochinvar’s praises to everyone in Wilson County to let them know what a generous group of employees work there.”

To build excitement for the event, maintenance department employee, Billy Batey, built crates to house the donations while the human relations department displayed the collected items so employees could see how their generosity was adding up. “It was wonderful to watch people as they walked by and looked in the collection box. Their smiles seemed to grow as the collection grew,” says manufacturing manager, Michael Boatright.
