Collinsville-based HVAC company Viviano Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. recently joined as a 2017 Business Sponsor for the community-driven organization, Edwardsville Neighbors in Need.
The new collaboration will provide financial support for grief-stricken families and help host annual fund-raising events where 100 percent of proceeds go directly to local families in need of assistance.
Neighbors in Need was formed locally with the goal of easing financial burdens to families with various needs, inspiring generosity and goodwill among the residents of communities in which they serve. In times of crisis, Neighbors in Need is able to step in and provide financial support for those that may not receive help elsewhere. This year, they sought business partners to help offset costs for the events they host each year and Viviano HVAC signed on as a sponsor.
“Because of the financial assistance that Neighbors in Need provides, families with a child battling cancer are able to focus a little less on the bills flowing in and more on the hugs and care their little one needs,” said Don Viviano, owner of Viviano Heating and Air Conditioning. “The array of help and needs vary, but the purpose remains the same: taking care of your neighbor.”
The most popular event each year includes the Taste of Edwardsville, which was held May 13. Ticket sales and earnings from the auction all go toward the Neighbors in Need initiative. Another event, the annual Turkey Trot 5K, will be held on Nov. 23. Business sponsors will be helping to fund both events.
