When the weather turns cold each fall or winter, you simply turn on your heating system to battle the cold. If you have a functioning heating system, you probably rarely give a second thought to what it would be like if you didn’t have heat. But that is the reality facing an alarming number of families in the state of North Carolina, some of which reside in Guilford County. According to data collected by local food banks, 75% of NC households have had to choose between heating their homes and buying food. That is the unfortunate reality, but it doesn’t have to continue that way. You can make a contribution to help those less fortunate to heat their homes this winter through The Gift of Warmth, a Salvation Army program. Such financial gifts help local HVAC companies like Berico provide families in need with heating system repair in Greensboro, NC.
