Recently, there has been heavy rain and flooding in Michigan. Donations received from Ferguson through their partnership with Good360 were used to replace damaged appliances. The sump pumps, donated by Ferguson, help pump out residents’ homes that sustained damage from flooding.
The tankless water heaters allow residents to position them on their walls to avoid the possibility of flood damage. One family in particular had their basement flooded due to heavy rain, which caused them to lose everything in the basement, including appliances. As a result of the flooding, they did not have hot water, and the basement water didn’t recede. A Ferguson pump sucked the water from their basement, thus allowing the repair company to enter their home carefully to install and replace their damaged hot water tank with the new one.
Donations such as these are vital for communities experiencing hard times due to a natural disaster. Thank you to Ferguson for providing families with hot water tanks necessary for staying safe after a flood.
