While many residents of the Lower Mainland are familiar with Moore & Russell Heating and Cooling’s long history of providing heating and air conditioning services to homes in the area, they may not be as familiar with their deep commitment to the communities they serve.
The Breakfast Club of Canada is just one example.
Moore & Russell Heating and Cooling’s owner, Serge Laredo, was introduced to the Breakfast Club at a local school and the experienced really impacted him.
“Being a part of the community is really important to us,” Laredo says. “The Breakfast Club is a great way for us to give back.”
Laredo quickly learned that one in five Canadian children are currently at risk of missing breakfast regardless of his or her socioeconomic status. And that can have a big impact on the child’s studies, social activities, and future.
That’s when he decided to get involved.
For the past three years, the heating company’s staff has visited Maillard Middle School in Coquitlam several times each year to assist in the serving of the breakfast to the students.
Laredo emphasizes that the involvement in the Breakfast Club is really just a part of the company’s overall commitment to its customers and its community. Everyone at Moore & Russell appreciates the chance to participate.
“Volunteering has been a part of my life for a long time now,” said Laredo. “Being involved with the Breakfast Club is just a natural part of what we do.”
Their community involvement has earned Moore & Russell Heating and Cooling a host of accolades, including one for their involvement in the Easter Seals House Renovation Project in June 2012.
Even though it would be easy for Moore & Russell Heating and Cooling to simply write a cheque, taking part and getting involved in the community is important to them. What’s more, they enjoy the opportunity to contribute to the region that has given them so much.
