Minerva and People Working Cooperatively
Lawson of Bond Hill hadn't had a hot water heater in two years. Retired
and on a fixed income, she wasn't financially able to hire a plumber to
repair it. At the suggestion of a friend, she made a late-night call to
People Working Cooperatively - and PWC responded by replacing her water
heater. She was very relieved to once again enjoy such a simple
necessity as hot water! Little did PWC know that it had made a friend
"The PWC staff is the
best. When I see the PWC logo, I feel secure that my problem will be
solved" she said. "PWC's staff and volunteers are always courteous,
competent and professional. This is the first time I have had hot water
in my bathroom in 24 years because of bad clogged pipes. Thanks PWC and
Perry for the best job on my sink and drywall.
"Thanks for taking the time to make emergency repairs in my home.
Because of kind, caring committed, people like you, PWC, senior
homeowners like me can continue to live independently in my own home.
God Bless you!" Since her service, Ms. Lawson became a volunteer and
advocate for PWC. She has spoken to various groups to encourage them to
"put uncommon effort into the common task" and volunteer for PWC's
elderly and low-income clients. Ms. Lawson provides a unique
perspective, having been the recipient of these services herself.
Eloquent, witty, dedicated, and kind, Ms. Minerva Lawson is a model
citizen. She recognizes a need in the Greater Cincinnati community and
does what she can to raise awareness and ensure that the need is met.
Dear People Working Cooperatively,
You bring good things to life for me
and other grateful senior homeowners who exist on a fixed income.
Without your help and volunteers who continuously show their love and
concern for others (sometimes for people they have never met before) I
don't know what I'd do. You have made PWC a household word, a name. And
you build great relationships with thousands of captive audiences who
desperately need and depend on the many services you provide. PWC, you
have made your name known by your good works. You build and service
circles within circles of homeowners. Seeking and cheerfully supporting
those of us seniors and low-income families who suffer home repair
needs. PWC your arms stretch wide reaching thousands of families to the
far corners of Ohio and KY and outside areas.
Without you I would not
have had hot water for my brother for long time. Unless anyone has gone
without their hot water heater, they will have no idea what it means to
have PWC, it's staff, it's volunteers, its corporate business men and
women who think it's a good thing to show concern and kindness.
do what you do so well. Words alone are inadequate to express my
gratitude for your assistance in providing a new water heater for us.
Thank you for your work. Thank you for your thought, thank you for your
good deeds. This time we won't have to heat water for 2 years. Keep on
doing what you do so well.
Thank you for your kindness, Minerva Lawson.
