Description of Service
Sponsors an annual one-day charity event that provides new, free furnaces for 12-15 families who are in need of a furnace but cannot afford one. The TUDI team and their families volunteer their time to participate in the "One Day Miracle" to complete furnace installations within one day's time. Families may be nominated for the program by family members, friends, neighbors, and even strangers seeking to help those in need during the holiday season.
Each year, TUDI solicits nominations from the community for individuals or families that have a need for a new heating system but cannot afford the investment. After home visits are conducted, 12-15 nominees are selected to receive new furnaces.
The person nominating the family must send a letter detailing the family's situation and current form of heat. The letter should include background on the individual or family's situation and information on how to contact the nominator and nominee.
