Ierna’s Heating and Cooling donated a new heating and cooling system to the family of Nelida Bagley of Land O Lakes, Florida. This is truly an example of the community working together to help each other. Part of the donation came from the proceeds of the 2012 “Bring the Heat” Chili Cook Off family event, and the rest was donated directly from Ierna’s to install the $3,500 home comfort system.
The donation was intended to benefit a local family in need of a heating and cooling system for their home. Nelida Bagley applied for the “Bring the Heat” donation in a particularly heart wrenching situation. Nelida and her daughter Elizabeth moved from their home in New Hampshire to care for her son, Jose, who suffered a traumatic brain injury while serving in Iraq in March of 2004. The bomb that injured Jose left him 100% disabled.
For the past three years Nelida has been renting a home and caring for her son full time. Her daughter has been earning an income to support the family. The family was finally able to purchase a home of their own this year, and Nelida wrote to Ierna’s with her wish to convert the garage into a gym for Jose’s rehabilitation therapies. The family needs a heating and cooling system so that the space can be an appropriate temperature for Jose and his therapists. Ierna’s Heating and Cooling is proud to be able to give back to the community, and happy to provide such a deserving family with the HVAC system they need. “Jose is a true American Hero. His story, experience, determination and his unbelievable will to survive has moved me. I am wholeheartedly honored to assist Jose and his family,” Says Charlene Ierna, Vice President of Ierna’s Heating and Cooling. We wish Nelida, Elizabeth, and Jose the best of luck and hope their heating and cooling system will help bring them comfort and happiness in their new home for many years to come.
