For over 65 years, ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric has served the Chicagoland area. And while we take great pride in serving this area, we are also proud to honor the great men and women that have served our country by participating in Nexstar® Legacy Foundation’s Troops To Trades program. This program, developed by the Nexstar Legacy Foundation, is designed to help returning veterans receive scholarships and training in the Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric industries.
The importance of supporting those interested in becoming trained technicians in the service industry is underlined by the increasing average age of technicians currently working in the field. The Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric industries are vital to the health and well-being of families across the country providing quality air, clean water and safe homes, and this industry is currently facing a shortage of qualified technicians. In addition, the need for military veterans for solid careers in the civilian sector is high. To support vets in our community, Chicago area residents have helped ABC raise over $20,000 over the last several years.
“Some of the most dedicated, resilient and capable people I’ve met deployed with me to Afghanistan. Those who’ve left the service had to start at square one, because an infantry background doesn’t yield the skills that domestic employment requires. I’m enthusiastic about the opportunities Troops to Trades provides to veterans.” said Brendan Finn, a returning veteran.
