ARS®/Rescue Rooter® focuses on four pillars of philanthropic giving:
It is critical to ARS/Rescue Rooter that we help younger generations succeed and thrive. Many ARS/Rescue Rooter-supported programs and non-profits nurture positive values in providing youth an environment to grow, learn, lead healthy lifestyles, and further their education. We are passionate about collaborating with organizations that help and support people who face adversities like special needs or serious health conditions that often begin at a young age.
ARS/Rescue Rooter is proud to support initiatives including Tim Tebow Foundation Night to Shine, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Walk/Run, Memphis Streets Ministries, and a company-wide food bank drive.
ARS/Rescue Rooter understands the commitment active military and veterans have made to our country, and so we have made honoring and supporting veterans a priority. We are aware veterans often face a different battle when trying to reclaim their civilian lives. In working with veterans’ agencies nationwide, including Alpha Omega Veterans Services and the American Red Cross, ARS/Rescue Rooter shows appreciation for our veterans through volunteering, writing letters of gratitude to our current and retired military and other acts of gratitude.
Athletic Team Sponsorships:
Athletics are a great way to promote fellowship in our communities. Whether it is the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational, AutoZone Liberty Bowl High School Game or cheering for the University of Memphis Tigers, ARS/Rescue Rooter supports activities that keep our customers active and rallying together.
Our own ARS Cares Program strives to reach out to those suffering without heat or A/C in our communities and provide them with a free HVAC system or water heater. In 2020, ARS/Rescue Rooter expanded the ARS Cares Program to award free home services makeovers to frontline healthcare professionals providing essential services during the COVID-19 pandemic. To date we have donated more than 150 systems to deserving recipients in communities nationwide.
