VOLUNTEER HIGHLIGHT

We're in hot water! (...well, not really)
Hot water heater
The Believe In Tomorrow Children’s House at Johns Hopkins recently made a key improvement to its plumbing system with a new commercial hot water heater! The 120-gallon, 3 phase electric, high-efficiency model, is a top of the line unit, and a much-needed modification to furnish hot water for Believe In Tomorrow’s leading hospital housing facility.

This upgrade was made possible by a product donation from renowned hot water heater expert, A.O. Smith, an innovative leader in hot water solutions, and the global standard for commercial and residential hot water heaters. When presented with the opportunity to support families in the midst of medical crisis, the 140-year-old company was eager to help. The donation was facilitated every step of the way by local distributor, N.H. Yates & Company, Inc.

Believe In Tomorrow turned to longtime partner, Associated Builders & Contractors of Baltimore, to help identify a company willing to contribute the installation. Bauer Mechanical, LLC was quick to answer the call, with personalized service and professional expertise. This local family owned and operated company specializes in new installations and major renovations for hospitals, commercial properties and institutions in the Mid-Atlantic, and were the perfect fit. Vice President Jeff Bauer Sr. recognizes the importance of helping others, and went above and beyond to ensure the project was completed seamlessly.

A very special thank you to all those who contributed to making this major modification possible for our families to enjoy a hot shower at the end of a hard day!




LATEST & GREATEST


In June 2012, the Believe In Tomorrow House at St. Casimir, our long-term hospital housing facility for pediatric bone marrow transplant patients, received a custom-designed building wrap through Signs By Tomorrow. The national sign and graphics company hosted a contest where entrants could submit a building or item of choice to receive a custom wrap, a type of advertising that covers a large surface area using a special material similar to a large, vinyl sticker.

Out of over 100 entries from around the country, the Believe In Tomorrow House at St. Casimir first made it to the top 5 nominations, and then received the most votes overall to win the contest! The wrap was designed to help spread awareness of Believe In Tomorrow's hospital housing program in a fun, childlike way, helping the building stand out in the busy Baltimore neighborhood of Canton.

Check out a video of the wrap installation, from beginning to end!

A special thanks to Signs By Tomorrow, 3M Commercial Graphics and United Application Standards Group (UASG) for making this happen.
