(Phoenix, Arizona) – The Sunny Plumber is donating $100,000 to Phoenix area FSL (Foundation for Senior Living) in support of local senior home safety and improvement efforts.
Ten grants, in the amount of $10,000 each will be given monthly from December 2016 through September of 2017. The purpose of this donation is to help FSL service seniors in the community by providing essential repairs to their homes.
“As we experience our own parents aging, we became more aware of the need many seniors, who live on limited fixed incomes, have to fix severe problems in their homes” said Gary Eisenhauer, General Manager at The Sunny Plumber. “We are grateful there are organizations like FSL who will manage donations and repairs for seniors who are living in hazardous environments.”
FSL supports qualifying seniors whose homes are in need of repairs and renovations. FSL manages the full cycle repair to include funding, contracting, and permitting. These improvements enable seniors to continue to live safely and with dignity in their homes.
“This donation will help us provide essential services to seniors in our community” said Katie Martin, Program Director for FSL. “A lot of our funding options come with red tape, most of our clients are on limited fixed incomes, when they have serious plumbing issues it can cause them not to have water in their home, and they don’t have the resources to fix them. Often, they end up living in unsafe conditions and it can take 3-5 months for them to go through the funding process. These funds will allow us to respond immediately to these situations and use our other funding for less immediate needs.”
The first donation from The Sunny Plumber took place Dec. 5, and has already been put to use laying a new pipe and water meter for an FSL client. FSL will administer the funds directly, for more information visit www.fslhomeimprovements.org.
