Roy’s Cares – Our Charity Initiative Throughout the Western New York Area

Roy's Cares Charity

Here at Roy’s Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we want to connect with our local community as much as we can. Our main focus over the years has always been on caring for the people in our community – even beyond plumbing, heating, and cooling services. Out of this desire to help those around us, Roy’s Cares was born.

Since we began our charity initiative in 2013, we have donated to over 45 different charities in the Western New York area through our lawn sign program. Here’s how it works: with every call that we take, our dedicated service technicians ask if they can put up a lawn sign after the job is done. For every sign that we put up, we donate $5 to a charity chosen by our staff. That’s it – it’s that simple. If we can put up a sign in your yard, we donate to a local charity initiative. Pretty easy, right?

This is our way of saying thank you to our community – the same community that makes it possible for Roy’s to be the company that it is. We have been a family owned and operated company since 1974, and we want our community to feel like part of the family as well. Some of our past contributions have gone to:

Most recently, we donated to an organization called The Teachers Desk, an organization that provides teachers with the materials needed to provide for their students who are in need. At this store, teachers can shop for free! Books, school supplies, and teaching resources are readily available for their classrooms.

Since opening in 2011, The Teacher’s Desk along with their team of volunteers have distributed more than $10 million worth of product to teachers working at schools in need in Western New York. Roy’s is proud to be able to help.

We are always open to suggestions, so if you ever have an idea for a charity or cause that you think could use our help, please feel free to call (716) 873-5000 or send us an e-mail! Roy’s Cares is just getting started – we look forward to being able to help many more charities in the Western New York Area!
