Since 2022, MAX Service Group, the organization that operates Williams Comfort Air as well as other Midwest heating, air conditioning, and plumbing companies, has provided free heating and cooling systems to educators in each market where the company operates.
This year, a free Carrier home comfort system is being given to Julissa Meraz, English as a Second Language teacher at Eastbrook Elementary School in the Pike Township Metropolitan School District. Meraz has been in the classroom for three years and works to go above and beyond for her students. This includes attending out-of-school extracurricular events to support her students outside of the classroom as well as in.
“I love teaching because sharing essential knowledge leads to a positive bond and communication,” said Meraz. “Seeing the lightbulb turn on for kids is rewarding, and hearing my Spanish speaking families say they are thankful their child’s teacher is bilingual is, as well. I want to help kiddos see themselves represented in the classroom and know I am always there if they need to ask for help.”
“Working in education comes with challenges, but it is one of the most important fields of work there is,” said Greg Wells, President of Williams Comfort Air. “Providing educators with a free HVAC system is a way we say thank you to those teachers and other educators who are working so hard each day to ready our youth for tomorrow. We are very happy to help these individuals who do so much to help others.”
Williams Comfort Air’s teacher home comfort system giveaway is part of its MAX Gives campaign that focuses on charitable contributions to the community. Other initiatives have included HVAC giveaways to families in need, water heater giveaways to first responders and community volunteers, monthly donations to various charities, scholarships to deserving high school seniors and donations to families during the holiday season.
