Thomas & Galbraith Provides Free Water Heater for Local Community Volunteer

CINCINNATI (November 30, 2023) – Thomas and Galbraith Heating, Cooling and Plumbing, a leading heating, cooling and plumbing company in southwest Ohio, is proud to announce it is providing a complimentary water heater to a community volunteer who lives and volunteers in the area. 

Since 2021, MAX Service Group, the organization that operates Thomas & Galbraith Heating, Cooling & Plumbing as well as other Midwest heating, air conditioning, and plumbing companies, has recognized local community leaders and provided them with a free water heater.

This year’s southwest Ohio winner is Latoya Turner. Latoya has been described as a “gem in Cincinnati.” She is a former educator who is now a children’s book author and literacy coach, coaching tutors between 18 and 24 years-old on literacy skills so they can become better tutors. She volunteers her time donating children’s books to hospitals, local schools and after-school programs in her neighborhood of Finnytown. Because of her work, there are more kids in the community who are learning to love reading and writing.

“As an organization, we foster a culture that encourages community engagement,” said Greg Wells, President of Thomas & Gabraith Heating, Cooling & Plumbing. “We want to honor those within our service areas who both have a passion for community engagement, and act on it. That’s why we are proud to continue our tradition of giving with something I hope shows these community leaders that their work does not go unrecognized or unappreciated.”

Thomas & Gabraith Heating, Cooling & Plumbing’s community volunteer water heater giveaway is part of the MAX Gives campaign that focuses on charitable community contributions. Other initiatives have included HVAC giveaways to local educations and families in need, water heater giveaways to first responders, monthly donations to various charities, scholarships to deserving high school seniors and holiday donations to families.
