For the eighth consecutive year, Forrest Anderson Plumbing and Air Conditioning (Forrest Anderson), a Glendale-based, family-owned business serving the greater Phoenix metro area since 1961, will honor men and women who bravely served or are currently serving in the U.S. military.
Forrest Anderson’s 2023 Military Hero A/C Giveaway will share the stories of local Maricopa County military heroes and award one Veteran or active duty servicemember with a free air conditioning system with installation.
“The Military Hero Giveaway is an incredible program,” said Olga Tucker, a U.S. Army veteran and winner of the 2021 Military Hero Giveaway. “This summer has been the most comfortable one we’ve had in our home and our electric bill actually went down. The system has been amazing. We are so grateful for Forrest Anderson Plumbing and A/C!”
Anyone can nominate a military hero by filling out a short application on Forrest Anderson’s website by Friday, September 29, 2023, at 10:00 p.m. MST.
A company panel will select up to five finalists and share their stories on Forrest Anderson’s website and Facebook Page, where members of the public can vote for their favorite from Tuesday, October 17th, 2023, at 12:01 am MST to Tuesday, October 31st, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. MST.
The giveaway is open to active-duty military, retired service members, and Veterans who were discharged under general or honorable conditions, who own a home in Maricopa County.
“My grandfather served in World War II before he started this company and this is a special way to honor his legacy and recognize the sacrifices Veterans have made for our communities,” said Audrey Monell, President of Forrest Anderson. “This is our seventh year running the Military Hero Giveaway and it is still one of my favorite events of the year. It is so encouraging to see our communities rally behind the men and women who serve our country and remind them how appreciated they are.”
