Local Company Gives Free Air Conditioner To Family In Need

Fahrhall Mechanical has followed up on its promise to award a local family with a free central air conditioner.

At the end of June, the company launched a contest to give away a free central air to a family in need. The contest was open to anyone in the Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent regions and people were able to either nominate themselves or someone they care about.

Fahrhall says nominations came pouring in via Facebook and email. The company’s charity committee took the time to read each nomination before choosing a winner.

The company says one person in particular stood out — Kim Giberson, a single mother to two children aged 6 and 10 who suffer from asthma.

Giberson received multiple nominations from friends and loved ones who see the effect the humidity and hot weather has on her children and knew that winning the central air conditioner would alleviate some of the children’s breathing problems.

Fahrhall says Giberson is a single, stay at home mom who is very involved in volunteering within the community and is always there to lend someone a helping hand.

Contest organizers say their colleagues at Lennox decided to go above and beyond and gave Giberson a brand new Lennox furnace and PureAir air purification system to go along with her new central air conditioner.

“Anyone suffering from asthma, allergies or breathing problems needs to put a Lennox PureAir system in their home,” says Tony O’Beid who works for Fahrhall. “Having this brand new Lennox air conditioner, furnace and air purification system is truly going to make a positive difference in the health of Kim and her kids.”

Fahrhall also chose a second, runner up winner after reading nominations about a young child who had part of his lung removed.

The company chose Stacey Giles as the recipient of a PureAir system after hearing that one of her children has severe asthma and her nephew who has been living with her for the past ten years had severe lung problems as a young child and had to have part of his lung removed.
