Goodman Donates to Habitat for Humanity and Military Makeover

March 27, 2019

Goodman Donates HVAC System to Habitat for Humanity Family

Anna, a well deserving mother of three, is one of the latest recipients of a Habitat for Humanity® home. To keep the family’s new home comfortable, Goodman donated a high-efficiency, 16 SEER/9.5 HSPF heat pump system.

The new home, which was built by the homeowner and a fleet of volunteers, is located in the suburbs of Orlando, FL. With the help of the HVAC installation dealer, Air Flow Designs Heating and Air Conditioning, the family’s new Goodman brand HVAC system will help keep utility bills low and provide consistent indoor comfort year-round.

“When we heard Anna’s story, we knew we wanted to help in any way we could,” said Brandon Franks, Goodman Director of National Accounts. “And our friends at Air Flow Designs made the installation possible.”

The family has had significant financial and health-related struggles. After living in a motel for six years, Anna saved enough money to move her family to a small apartment. However, rent was taking up too much of the family’s income, making it difficult to pay for other necessities.

To add to the stress, Anna’s middle daughter, Briana, was diagnosed with a brain disorder that significantly deteriorated her vision. The family is currently working with the Division of Blind Services to apply for a service dog. “No matter how difficult life can be, you have to keep striving to get better and believe that anything is possible,” said Anna.

Goodman is proud to support this Habitat for Humanity home build. Habitat for Humanity has grown from a grassroots effort that began on a community farm in southern Georgia in 1976 to a global nonprofit housing organization in nearly 1,400 communities across the U.S. and in over 70 countries.

Goodman Salutes Veteran with Indoor Comfort Makeover

Aaron Middleton is a USMC Major and Senior Communications Officer at US Marine Corp Central Command in Tampa, Florida. Over the past twelve years, as Aaron deployed and traveled the world, he and his wife Holly had four beautiful children: Trott, Scarlett, Magnolia, and Kelvin.
However, the family has faced overwhelming adversity. Their youngest child almost lost his battle with a severe lung issue, and then their five-year-old daughter, Scarlett, unexpectedly died from an undiagnosed illness. The shock and trauma of Scarlett’s passing shook the family to its core. With the focus being on their family and serving our country, the Middleton’s home needed attention.

Goodman, a proud sponsor of Military Makeover airing on Lifetime TV since 2016, stepped in to salute the Middleton’s by donating high-efficiency HVAC products. With Goodman as a sponsor and the expertise of The AC Guy of Tampa Bay, a local, independent Goodman dealer, a new Goodman brand heating and cooling system will help lower the family’s utility bills and provide consistent indoor comfort year-round.

The Military Makeover episodes featuring the Middleton family will air on the Lifetime Television® at 7:30 a.m. ET on the following dates:

  • Episode 4: April 5 and April 11.
  • Episode 5: April 19 and April 25.
  • Episode 6: April 26 and May 2.
