WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- One business in West Lafayette is giving back to the community. Starting this month Blue Fox Heating and Cooling will donate a thousand dollars to area non-profits. The owners say this is their way of saying thank you to people who work to make the community we live in a better place.
Blue Fox Heating and Cooling have been in business for about two years, but the owners have lived in greater Lafayette their whole lives.
"We work here our families are here our friends are here so giving back to this community specifically is what makes sense," said Jared Manny one of the owners of Blue Fox Heating and Cooling.
The owners have a passion for the local community. That's why, every month until January of 2021 the business will donate $1,000 to local non-profits.
"We want to be able to do this more than just once,” added Manny. “To be able to spread that out across the community and across a number of months and possibly as we go on in the future other things for the community as well."
The non-profit organizations can become eligible to receive the donation by being nominated on our website, at the end of the month Blue Fox Heating and cooling will select the recipient.
"We hope to make that decision based on not just the leadership of the company but the company as a whole,” said Manny.
The business hopes that by giving back they can make a difference in the community and influence other local businesses to do the same.
"Hopefully we can be an example as there were businesses that were an example for us before,” said Manny. “To be able to promote this in a passion of giving back and hopefully other businesses will follow."
Non-profit organizations can be nominated for the donations from the 1st to 15th of every month. To nominate a non-profit click here. So far there have been nearly 250 nonprofits nominated.
