Hiller Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical (Hiller), the region’s largest residential plumbing, HVAC, and electrical provider, is proud to partner with Toys for Tots for the fourth consecutive year. During a special Christmas promotion each holiday season, Hiller donates toys to Toys for Tots with the purchase of each new tankless water heater. Since 2019, Hiller has purchased over $33,000 in toys to donate to underserved families in our community.
During this special promotion, available from November 15th through the end of the year, Hiller sets aside $50 from each tankless water heater sold to purchase toys for donation. And, as a special incentive to homeowners, Hiller offered a $250 Visa gift card with every purchase. So far this year, over $7,000 has been raised from this special sale. Hiller contributed an additional $5,000 towards the donation.
Toys for Tots is a non-profit organization launched by the U.S. Marine Corps in 1947. The organization is dedicated to providing new Christmas gifts to children and young adults who may otherwise not receive presents during the holidays. To date, Toys for Tots has supported over 281 million children with over 627 million toys and gifts.
Each year, using the funds raised from this promotion, Hiller’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Jimmy Hiller, his wife Michelle, their children, and their grandchildren shop for a truck’s worth of toys to donate. This shopping spree has quickly become one of the family’s most anticipated Christmas events.
“The Toys for Tots shopping spree has become one of my family’s most cherished holiday traditions”, remarked Jimmy Hiller. “For many families, the holidays can be stressful and challenging. With the help of our customers, we’re able to alleviate some of that stress, making sure that every child experiences the joy of Christmas - regardless of their financial situation. We are so fortunate”, he continued, “to give back to families in the community that has been so good to us.”
On Monday, December 19th, the Hiller family met at a local Target to shop together, hand-selecting new toys, electronics, and gifts for other families to enjoy on Christmas morning. This year’s donations, totaling over $12,000, filled over 18 shopping carts with items from the Toys for Tots wish list. This donation, made possible by the community’s support, follows donations of $10,500 in 2021, $5,500 in 2020, and $5,000 in 2019.
Launched in 1990 with a single employee, Hiller has grown to include over 500 trucks and 700 team members across sixteen locations and seven states.
