Gerald Allison in Knoxville, TN Helps Local Community With Essential Items

Employees at the dual-owned One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing in Knoxville, TN, are providing more than their expert services—they are distributing home essentials to customers who need them. Several employees search local stores—often in the early morning hours—to purchase hard to find toilet paper and meat. Then, they distribute the goods to people in need. They have also picked up medicine for three elderly customers who were afraid to leave the house.

Gerald Allison, President and Owner, says the company’s motto has shifted to this:

“Our doors are open, and we are here to help in any way we can. We not only want to help you with your heating, air, and plumbing needs but with anything else you might need. If you need medicine and can’t get out – we are here to help.”
