Houston, TX – August 13, 2010 – Abacus Plumbing Company donated $500 worth of materials and equipment to help a local Boy Scout with his Eagle Scout project. The project involved the demolition and remodeling of two restrooms at the St. Rose of Lima Youth Center. The donation is part of Abacus Plumbing’s “Count on Us to Care” program that regularly helps local charities with their needs.
The St. Rose of Lima Eagle Scout project is the work of Joseph Gaudiano of local Boy Scout Troop 40. Joseph is not only working on the project himself, but is organizing donations of materials and funds to ensure the new restrooms meet all required codes and are accessible to everyone, including the handicapped. He plans on having the new restrooms completed by the middle of August.
The donation by Abacus is part of a recently launched program that will regularly offer monthly donations to different charities in the area plus an annual scholarship award. In July, a scholarship was awarded to Daniel Dietz, a recent graduate of Kingwood Park High School, for $1,000. Each month, Abacus management will select a charity to receive a check for $500. Charities will be selected based on their involvement and commitment to serving the needs of those living in the Houston area.
