MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Johnson & Johnson Heating and Air Conditioning of Martinsburg, W.Va., recently installed a free air conditioning system for an area resident.
The company reported that the effort was part of a Feel the Love program with Lennox. Through that program, the company took nominations for people to receive a heating or air conditioning system. Johnson & Johnson chose Carol Robertson.
In 2008 Robertson’s husband, a World War II veteran, passed away. Two years ago, her son died from a heart attack. Last year, she lost her daughter-in-law.
Through it all, the company reported, Robertson has kept a smile on her face and kind words for others. She volunteers at her church holds yard sales as fundraisers and volunteers on Election Day.
Jim Rodgers, her neighbor, and Johnson & Johnson believed her to be the most deserving of the fantastic gift. In addition to the free system, Johnson & Johnson volunteers removed a deteriorating shed, loaded brush into a dump truck, trimmed shrubs, cut down trees, and fixed the railing, fence and gate in her backyard.
Lennox donated the air conditioning system, and Johnson & Johnson donated time and materials.
The effort involved some other businesses as well,. Lowe’s donated $700 in supplies, and Chick-fil-A and Cracker Barrel donated food and drinks.
