Lennox Feel The Love recipients Jimmy and Priscilla Nash of Mentone felt the love from Collier's Heating and Air Conditioning of Warsaw with a new furnace and airconditioning unit, free of charge.
The Lennox Feel The Love program provides heating and cooling equipment at no cost once a year to one locally nominated family. Nominations from the community help determine each year's recipients. Over 200 other Lennox dealers nationwide performed installations over the weekend. Collier’s Heating & Air conditioning is one of two in Indiana.
Past nominees have included community figures such as teachers, firefighters, and volunteers; families facing hard times; veterans; senior citizens living in older homes; and people impacted by natural disasters.
Collier's co-owner Kevin Lehman says the company's involvement with the program for the past three years has been a rewarding experience.
The Nash's were unaware they had even been nominated when they had received the phone call about being this year's Feel The Love recipients.
The family was nominated by the Kosciusko County Housing for Hope. Their old furnace was out of date and theair conditioning is imperative for Jimmy's health. Priscilla Nash said receiving this has been a miracle.
Nominations for next year's Feel The Love recipient can be submitted to feelthelove.com after June 2022. This year there were only 12 nominations turned in locally.
