Donation to Heat Up St. Louis provides funds to help those in need
The St. Louis Chapter of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) made another donation to Heat Up St. Louis. Representing facility managers and suppliers who maintain the region’s commercial buildings, IFMA St. Louis presented a check for $1,000 to Heat Up St. Louis.
The nonprofit organization builds awareness and provides resources to help those in need, especially the elderly and disabled, and needy families with critically ill children, avoid illnesses and deaths during the area’s bitter winter season.
“We know that many in our community need support especially during these difficult times,” said Scott Held, president of IFMA St. Louis. “Unfortunately, as the need increases, we also know that the organization’s donations have decreased. This makes this year’s donations even more critical to Heat Up/Cool Down St. Louis. We know our support will make a difference in so many lives,” Held noted.
IFMA St. Louis also funds the organization’s Cool Down St. Louis, which provides services and support to keep residents cool during the hot summer months.
IFMA St. Louis has supported the weather-related assistance programs for the past seven years. The nonprofit organization helps defray the cost of energy to heat and cool residences. More than 660,000 area residents have been impacted by its services since its inception in 2000.
IFMA St. Louis offers its members a learning and networking environment among its diverse membership and supplies its members with the tools to achieve their professional goals. Started in 1985, IFMA St. Louis has more than 250 members representing small and Fortune 500 companies throughout the region. For more information, visit www.ifma.org.
