Alco Air – The Gift of Heat

Alco Air is pleased to give the “Gift of Heat” to a deserving family this year in the Longview, TX area.

The holiday season is upon us, and it’s the time of year for giving! It is easy for people to take for granted all that they have, and become busy in the day to day bustle of living life.

But for so many, right here in our own community, there will be hard decisions that have to be made, which others cannot fathom. Like having to decide on whether to heat the home, or feed the family. While many of us are getting ready for parties, fellowship, and gift giving, there are so many whose minds are already turning as to how they will provide a warm home for their families.

There are people closing off their homes down to one room where the family will huddle around a space heater or a fireplace in an attempt to stay warm as our East Texas temperatures begin to drop. There will be the coat drives, and the food drives, distribution of space heaters, and electric blankets will be sought out to distribute to those in need.
