Woman with Multiple Sclerosis and Husband Who Had Stroke get Big Helping Hand from Friends and Local HVAC Company

Charleston, SC- April 20th: ARS/Rescue Rooter in Charleston have selected Eugene and Peggy Sumter to receive a donated HVAC system. The Sumters are a local couple, and they are both struggling with debilitating medical conditions. However, the couple is recognized throughout the Red Top community as mainstay volunteers and positive influencers in the community. However, when friends discovered they were going without an HVAC system, they called on ARS/Rescue Rooter in Charleston for support.

Edith Miller, a friend of the Sumters, nominated the couple for ARS Cares, a program in which ARS donates an HVAC system or water heater to a company in need. She says, “Due to limited income and high medical costs, they were not able to replace their broken air conditioning system. They are more deserving of getting a new system donated to them than anyone else I know.”

Franklin Felton, General Manager of ARS/Rescue Rooter in Charleston, was happy to have the opportunity to help a deserving person in the community.

ARS Cares is a program that is being activated at over 70 branches of ARS-owned service providers around the country. To nominate a person in Charleston and the surrounding area, visit arscharleston.com/arscares.
