Unique partnership for home services company
Clockwork Home Services becomes the first and only home services company to partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Takes innovative approach to raising money for children.
Orlando, Fl (April 24, 2014) – How do you leverage the power and the reach of the largest home services provider in North America to help tiny babies and children in hospitals? For Clockwork Home Services it comes down to a very local approach. Today in Orlando, the parent company of Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®, One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning® and Mister Sparky® electric announced a new partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals.) The announcement came during Clockwork Home Services’ annual convention.
The company has a network of franchises in more than 600 territories across North America. This partnership will be unique. Typically partners collect donations from customers at cash registers in stores. With this initiative, when customers have one of the brand’s service technicians doing repair or maintenance in their homes they can make a donation. It can simply be added to their final invoice. “Our goal is to improve the lives of families by providing the best home comfort and service possible. By partnering with CMN Hospitals, we are expanding on this commitment by helping save and improve the lives of children throughout the communities where our valued customers live, “said Mark Baker, president of franchise for Clockwork Home Services. “All the money raised will stay in the local community where it is donated and there is a CMN affiliated hospital serving every area we operate in,” adds Baker.
“We are thrilled to be embarking on this partnership with the Clockwork Home Services brands. They are in the business of making a difference for people in their homes and we make a difference for sick and injured children, we will make a great team,” said John Lauck, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals President and CEO.
To kick off the partnership, each brand donated $1,000 to CMN Hospitals today. Franchise owners also donated their time during the annual convention to make more than 1000 overnight kits with essentials for parents who have to stay a CMN Hospital while their child is receiving care.
