(Florida) Hill York, Florida’s leading commercial air conditioning and energy solutions company, announced that its employees gave more than 4,000 hours of volunteer service to charitable causes in their communities during 2015. The company goal was 1,000 hours.
The target-smashing total was part of “Hill York Helps: Comforting Those In Need,” an outreach campaign that engages employees in offices throughout Florida in a companywide drive to encourage volunteerism. Hill York is pledging to increase its goal in 2016 to 5,000 volunteer service hours.
“Reaching four times our goal says a lot about the humanity and compassion of Hill Yorkers,” said CEO Robert “Chip” Lafferty. “We have a company culture that rallies around making life more comfortable for people, so acting on the impulse to help others is something our employees do without hesitation. They really crushed it this year.”
Volunteer work by Hill Yorkers spans a wide range of community service activities, including charity races and walks, preparing meals at food pantries, participating in golf and fishing scholarship fundraisers, visiting children in hospitals, and building homes for the underprivileged. In 2015, they donated time and money to a diverse group of charitable organizations, including the Adoption Awareness Foundation, Buddy WalkÂ® for Autism, Girl Scouts of America, The Humane Society, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Make-A-Wish Foundation, National Breast Cancer Foundation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Sheridan House, and local churches, schools and little league teams. Hill Yorkers who made financial donations to charities were credited with one volunteer hour for every $20 contribution.
