We congratulate our Guardian Gives Back Winner 2020!
Giving back to our community is vital to Guardian’s mission in providing a caring and honest service to our community. During the unexpected changes from the COVID pandemic, many individuals were faced with challenges.
Guardian wanted to take care of one deserving front line worker the only way we know how. By providing a new American Standard heating and air system to one carefully chosen winner, we are able to give the gift of comfort and peace of mind. Plus, when our friends at Johnstone Supply and Nu-Calgon heard about our giveaway, they offered a free iWave-R air cleaner to provide the winner with optimum indoor air quality! Hundreds of nominations came in for our Front Line Worker giveaway. From medical workers and truck drivers, to grocery store workers and front line responders; we read many stories of deserving candidates.

Out of 3 finalists, one nomination captured the hearts of our employees. Meet Angela, this years Guardian Gives Back winner! Angela, a single mother, works at a local hospital as a front line worker. Upon the mandated shutdown, Angela continued to brave the daily potential of exposure. She was faced with the hard decision of keeping her daughter safe. Angela made the hard choice to selflessly place her daughter in family members care, while she continued to serve the community through her work. A selfless act indeed! It wasn’t just Angela’s bravery that won her a spot as a finalist. Angela’s HVAC system was over 15 years old and in dire straights.
The Giveaway Takes an Unexpected Turn
After scheduling Angela’s new HVAC installation, we were informed that we needed to delay. Upon speaking with Angela, we were told that even with the extra precautions, not only did her daughter test positive for the virus, but Angela did as well. Thankfully, both quarantined and recovered!

Installation was scheduled and Richard Eppers, owner, along with the installation team gifted Angela and her daughter with their new HVAC system and air cleaner! What was our favorite moment? When Angela’s daughter asked her mom if this system would be quieter than the old one. Yet another affirmation that Angela and her daughter were the right candidates to win this year’s ‘Guardian Gives Back’ HVAC System Giveaway!
Congratulations Angela! Keep watch for next years new HVAC system giveaway. In the meantime, take a look at our regular monthly giveaways and enter to win. Guardian would like to thank all the nominees and those that took the time to nominate your deserving friends and family members.
