InSinkErator® Donates $25,000 to PHCC Educational FoundationSubscribe to RSS feed
Committed to the idea that continuing education is key to sustaining a trained workforce and building the plumbing profession, InSinkErator® made a significant donation in October to the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors (PHCC) Educational Foundation.
InSinkErator presented the Foundation with $25,000 in matching funds at the PHCC CONNECT 2013 National Convention in Las Vegas to boost its “Invest in Your Future” fundraising campaign. The campaign supports the Foundation’s mission of delivering educational programs for contractors and helps to fund scholarships for future industry professionals through the PHCC National Auxiliary.
“The Educational Foundation receives far more from InSinkErator than the $25,000 contribution,” said Roger Peugeot, PHCC Educational Foundation chairperson. “Beyond this gift, InSinkErator’s contributions make them a key partner in the recruitment and training of the next generation of industry professionals.”
For 25 years, InSinkErator has partnered with the PHCC Educational Foundation and the PHCC National Auxiliary on the “Invest in Your Future” campaign. This is the primary fundraising program for both the foundation’s contractor education programs and the auxiliary’s scholarship program. InSinkErator contributions have been a major part of the more than $3 million in PHCC scholarships that have been awarded to young men and women actively involved or pursuing careers in the industry.
“We appreciate the work that PHCC, the PHCC National Auxiliary and the PHCC Educational Foundation do to support and build the industry,” said Rob Grim, InSinkErator senior vice president of sales. “InSinkErator is grateful to have the opportunity to partner with these outstanding groups to help ensure a bright future for all of the talented young contractors getting started in the industry.”
