Las week, we told you about the “Heat Up Minnesota” Campaign. The Lennox Campaign offers the donation of 100 new, high-efficiency furnaces to be installed in homes of Minnesota families in need. Lennox donates the furnaces and a local Lennox dealer (Chappell Central of Willmar, MN) donates the labor and materials needed to complete the furnace installations.
Chappell Central was proud to have two winners of the “Heat Up Minnesota” campaign in their service area. The first was Dianne Parker of Willmar, Minnesota (read her story here). The second winner was Mark and Ellen Sorgatz of Sacred Heart, Minnesota!
Mark and Ellen Sorgatz – Sacred Heart, MN
The furnace installation crew who headed over to Sacred Heart replaced a 35-year-old old fuel oil burner at the 142-year-old home of Mark and Ellen Sorgatz. Ellen Sorgatz suffered a brain aneurysm and two strokes about four years ago and has difficulty staying warm due to her medical conditions. Mark also has some medical challenges with a heart attack last fall. With a family of four, the new furnace has been a blessing. Ellen told the West Central Tribune, “We are very fortunate and grateful for the opportunity to get a new furnace.”
The Chappell Central staff was excited to do such meaningful work, and the families who received their new high efficiency furnaces were very appreciative. Randy Sather, residential Sales Representative for Chappell Central Inc., said, “It’s great to be able to help people who have had tough times.”
