COLORADO SPRINGS — There's no arguing that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed a massive portion of our daily lives.
In the midst of these changes, many local businesses are finding ways to overcome and adapt to keep their doors open, while at the same time, help those around them.
Similarly, businesses hit hard are reporting a tremendous outpouring of support from the community.
This outpouring reminding all of us that while this global epidemic has changed so much, it HASN'T changed people's desire for community.
This is We're Open Colorado, a segment dedicated to highlighting local businesses that are still open and finding unique ways to serve the community.
With all of this in mind, let's take a look at Flow Right, a plumbing heating and cooling service that is working to provide peace of mind for many by committing "$10,000 in subsidized services in order to address specific needs in the community."
The Flow it Forward program, which started at the beginning of April, is geared towards helping home owners who cannot afford essential services or repairs.
"Maybe they lost their job, maybe they have fixed income, maybe they lost hours," stated Jimmy Roybal, part owner of Flow Right, "but for them to stay at home comfortably and have their family be comfortable with them, they need some sort of essential service."
The program acts as a sort of "pay what you can" initiative according to Roybal, "We even had some people who couldn't afford anything and so we took care of the service for them."
If you know of a family or individual in need of assistance, you can nominate them HERE, and even nominate yourself.
The company is also offering free AC check up and turn on to healthcare workers in honor of National Nurses Day which takes place on May 6th.
