Surprise $10,000 Donation For Homeless Women Veterans And The Heat Is On

The heat is on and the air conditioning is right behind it! A small army of volunteers is nearly finished installing a new furnace and Air Conditioning system... for FREE!


What a day of surprises. Not only is the heat working from their new furnace, but Robin's Home just got a surprise donation of $10,000 combined from two different organizations. Dennis Baglier, who also bought the home that's being turned into Robin's Home, surprised founder Mary Chitwood with the two checks this morning while we were touring the home's basement and new furnace.

Now to the other big news from Robin's Home. The heat is on from the new furnace volunteers installed over the weekend. The materials and labor were all donated by Bill Kennihan who's been in the HVAC business for nearly 50 years with his company, Kennihan's. This morning Bill joined me and Robin's Home founder Mary Chitwood to show us the work they've done and what they still have left to do.

If you haven't heard about Robin's Home just yet, let me give you some backstory. It was recently founded by Mary Chitwood who is a veteran herself. Mary wanted to do something to help women veterans who are struggling with homelessness. It's an area she discovered was very male-centered for help and recognized something needed to be done specifically for women and children.

There's still a lot to do and plenty of ways you can help out. Check out their website for information on volunteering, donating, and the services they'll be offering very very soon.

I have one more video for you today and it's yet another surprise. This time Mary had something waiting for Bill Kennihan.
