Bold City Heating & Air Gave Thanks!
As active members of the Jacksonville community, we are so proud to have a presence here, and watch as the city grows into such a great place to live. One of the main components to an attractive city is the people who live here. We are so fortunate to have the military presence and influence that exists here in our large city, because it makes us feel safe knowing there are so many service members living among us. And this awareness got us thinking about how we could show this appreciation to these people, who have sacrificed so much for Americans to feel safe.
We decided on a social media driven giveaway campaign calling on the Jacksonville community to nominate a worthy veteran, family member or friend, who has made a positive impact on their lives. It was an opportunity to nominate a real hometown hero, whose commitment to serve was still as strong as the day they enlisted. In order to spread the word, we combined our social media efforts with an appearance on a WJXT morning show segment to promote the giveaway.
Fortunately, the campaign was a great success and we found our recipient, and had the privilege of announcing the winner live on the News4Jax Thanksgiving Morning Show. Aaron Dunn, who served as Chief Petty Officer in the United States Coast Guard, was the man who made the cut, and we believe him to be a wonderful choice to express our gratitude. He was present, along with his family, to receive his gift, and we were so happy to make the presentation. A few weeks later, the big day arrived, and on November 28th, Bold City Heating & Air donated the brand new HVAC system to Aaron, at his home for him and his family.
Bold City Heating & Air, as well as the greater Jacksonville community as a whole, feels fortunate to be surrounded by so many hard working and selfless veterans – and it was our pleasure to show our appreciation to one very deserving veteran and his family on Thanksgiving Day.
We love our veterans and the people of Jacksonville, and we will continue to look for opportunities to give back to our community that we feel has given us so much.
