Tucson Family in Need Receives Free AC System from Local Company

Chas Roberts Air Conditioning & Heating sponsors contest to give back to the Tucson community

Phoenix, Arizona (June 12, 2012) – Chas Roberts Air Conditioning and Heating has chosen a Tucson family to receive a free home air conditioning and heating unit and installation, just in time for the brutal summer heat.

The Ortegas were amongst the many nominations Chas Roberts received this year as part of their annual Cool Play AC Giveaway contest. Ms. Ortega and her two children have been living without a properly working air conditioner since Ms. Ortega was laid off from her job nearly two years ago. With only variable income from temporary work and no health insurance, Ms. Ortega was unable to purchase a new air conditioner for her and her children.

The family received a Carrier brand air conditioning system, installed by Chas Roberts, and two tickets to an Arizona Diamondbacks game.

“We received so many heartfelt and compelling nominations this year that we weren’t sure how were going to choose which Tucson family would receive this prize,” said Sissie Roberts Shank, CEO of Chas Roberts Air Conditioning & Heating. “The nomination submitted by Ms. Ortega stood out from the pack because it was clear that she desperately needed a way to keep her and her children cool this summer.”

This is the third year Chas Roberts has sponsored this contest where the general public is invited to nominate someone in need. Winners were selected based on the story of need submitted on the online application form on ChasRoberts.com.

“From our humble beginnings 70 years ago when my grandparents started Chas Roberts Air Conditioning and Heating, we have grown into Arizona’s largest HVAC provider, thanks to the support of the Tucson community,” said Roberts Shank. “We are a family-owned and operated business that serves Arizona’s families, so we truly look forward to this contest every year as a way to give back to the community that has done so much for us.”
