Service Champions was founded on the premise of providing outstanding service to our community (it’s in our name.) But that goes beyond just heating and air conditioning and extends to everything we do.
About three years ago, Leland Smith, owner and founder of Service Champions, was talking with a few of his technicians about how they could assist struggling families during the holidays.
It was 2009 when Smith and his technicians landed on the idea of delivering Thanksgiving meals to Orange County families. They already had trucks and personnel at their disposal, now they just needed to get the rest of the team on board.
Of course, getting support for such a cause wasn’t difficult. The first year the Service Champions staff donated 100 Thanksgiving dinners. Last year they fed 165 families. This year everyone stepped it up a notch and donated over 300 dinners to families who wouldn’t otherwise be able to have a Thanksgiving meal.
The food was distributed by Service Champions technicians who volunteered to come in early to deliver the turkey dinners before their first call.
We’re not Santa Claus, but Service Champions did provide gifts to children at Orangewood Children’s Foundation this year.
For many years Service Champions has been collecting gifts for Orangewood Children’s Foundation’s annual Wish List.
Orangewood Children’s Foundation helps support children in the county and state’s foster care system as well as successfully transition foster kids to dependency once they reach the age of 18.
To help this great organization, each December our employees bring in a range of items like toys, gift cards, school supplies, board games and electronics from Orangewood’s Wish List.
The Wish List represents the current needs and wishes of the teens and young children Orangewood serves. You can learn more about this organization by visiting their website.
At Service Champions we understand the responsibility of being a successful business and strive to give back to the community we serve.
From all of us here, to all of you – Have a safe and happy holidays!
