Giving back to the community is a part of Plumbline Services foundation. We are so grateful for the support of our community and we like to take advantage of every opportunity to give back. We know we aren’t the only people who feel this way, so helping those who share this ideal is extremely important to us.
The Littleton Firefighters Foundation is just one of those charitable organizations. This foundation was founded in January of 2000. They give to many local charities and charitable events. A few of these include Western Week Children’s Parade, Littleton Meals on Wheels and the Battered Women Shelter. Not only does the foundation help these types of charities, but they also support individuals. If a firefighter is unable to work, whether it is due to illness or injury, the foundation will help take care of them and their families. While working the Littleton Firefighters often come across families who could use help. The foundation has a program where the family can request assistance from the Littleton Firefighters Foundation. Each year, they have a “Face Off Challenge Hockey Tournament” and a “Chili Cook Off”. These fundraisers help raise money for people in need. Each year the support and engagement in these events has doubled.
We truly admire everything that the local firefighters and the Littleton Firefighter’s Foundation do for the community. They dedicate their entire lives to serving and bettering the community. These men and women are true heroes for risking their lives and spending their free time to help those around them. We are honored to be able to help them with their mission.

“Plumbline Services is proud to have supported this great foundation for over 5 years. This foundation supports so many other great organizations, as well as amazing heroes who risk their lives for our safety. It is an honor to support these men and women.”Jon Heggie, Vice President of Plumbline Services
Plumbline Services is extremely grateful for and proudly supports those who protect our communities. During the month of January, Plumbline Services gave back to the Littleton Firefighters Foundation with a $1,000 donation.
The LFFF is an incredible foundation that helps many local charities, just a couple of these charities are Littleton Meals on Wheels and Battered Women Shelter. They also help on an individual basis by supporting fellow firefighters and their families when they are unable to work. This foundation doesn’t only give financial assistance to those who need it, but the Littleton Firefighters themselves volunteer a lot of their own time to these events, helping collect donations and acquiring sponsors.
These men and women are true heroes and we are grateful to be able to help them with their mission of helping citizens and firefighters in need.

During the month of September, we had the opportunity to be involved in two incredible organizations. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Both of these organizations hold a special place in the hearts of our team at Plumbline Services.
In support of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we created a team to participate in their Out of Darkness Walk. The Out of Darkness Walk honors, remembers, educates and raises money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). According to the AFSP website, suicide is the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. among adults 18-65. It is the second leading cause of death among teens and young adults, and ages 65 and older account for 16% of all suicide deaths. The funds raised by AFSP and the Out of Darkness Walk are used to help understand suicide, learn ways to prevent it and create new educational programs. Plumbline Services is proud to be involved in this extremely important cause.
There is never a good time to hear “you have cancer”. However, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, with the help of Light the Night walks all over the country, brings a little light to the dark times. Unlike other cancers, there is no means of early screening for most blood cancers. So, the LLS promotes walks, such as Light the Night, to raise money for research to find cures for blood cancers. The society also helps cancer survivors and their families gain access to quality, affordable and coordinated care. LLS does amazing things to help relieve the heavy burden that is placed upon the shoulders of those diagnosed with cancer. We were honored to be apart of the local Light the Night event this year and look forward to the years to come.
Both of these organizations provide light to those around them. Their goal is to help those in need and it was an honor to help them get a little bit closer to that goal!
