On June 7, Freezing Mechanical joined local contractors and Building Homes for Heroes at a Welcome Home ceremony in Miramar, FL for Army
SSgt Ricardo Gutierrez de Pinerez. Johnson Controls donated a YORK heating and cooling system and Freezing Mechanical provided installation
services for the veteran’s new home. “The support of companies like Johnson Controls and its high quality YORK heating equipment and Contractors like Freezing Mechanical enable our organization to reach more injured veterans in need and help them begin to rebuild their lives,” said Chad Gottlieb, director of construction development, Building Homes for Heroes.
Building Homes for Heroes is a national organization that recognizes the tremendous sacrifices of men and women of the United States Armed
Forces by supporting the needs of severely wounded or disabled soldiers and their families. The organization strives to build or renovate quality homes and gift the homes to severely injured veterans nationwide, mortgage free.
Freezing Mechanical is excited to partner with YORK and Building Homes for Heroes to support this deserving family.
“It’s amazing,” said Army SSgt Ricardo Gutierrez de Pinerez. “It’s more than I expected and honestly way more than I ever expected.” Army SSgt Ricardo Gutierrez de Pinerez served in Afghanistan, where he injured his back during a downed aircraft recovery mission. He deals with
PTSD and admits the transition to civilian life has been challenging. “When you first get out of the military you are faced with many problems and situations that are hard to deal with,” he explained. “The military prepares you as best they can but you still have a lot of uncertainty.”
