Annual “Heat’s On – Water’s Off” Project Proving Free Heating and Plumbing Inspections to Elderly

On Saturday, September 25, 2010, the Annual “Heats On – Waters Off” project will provide preventive maintenance to heating and plumbing equipment for the elderly and the disabled who may have difficulty paying for such services.  Twenty-five homeowners that may have inefficient, faulty or hazardous equipment will be assisted in this one-day project.

Every year since 1998, the Mechanical Contractors Association of Metropolitan Washington, Plumbers Local 5 and Steamfitters Local 602 have sponsored the “Heat’s On – Water’s Off” workday in Prince George’s County.  The idea is to donate materials and expert volunteer services to help needy senior citizens make their homes ready for winter by repairing or replacing heating, plumbing and other mechanical equipment.

Giant Food of Landover and the Baltimore Ravens Team Up

Talk about teamwork! Giant Food and the Baltimore Ravens have come together for a magnificent cause.

The Ravens named Giant Food their official supermarket partner as the two organizations begin a season-long campaign giving back to the Maryland Food Bank.

Giant will support the team’s annual “Ravens Family Food Drive” at Baltimore-area stores from November 7 to November 28; leading up to the November 28 Giant Food Game Day Sponsorship at M&T Bank Stadium when the Ravens host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

The Ravens and Giant hope to donate more than 40,000 pounds of non-perishable food items to the Maryland Food Bank, but that's not all: Giant and the Ravens will also team up to support community events including breast cancer awareness and prevention efforts in the month of October.
