Newcap. Inc.'s mission for over 50 years has been to move people from poverty to independence and self-sufficiency and improve communities.
"Neighbors helping neighbors." The motto for the Heat U.P. Wisconsin program is so appropriate. This program asks you to nominate someone you know who needs a helping hand. Then, on October 1st, local Lennox heating contrators install a new, high-efficiency Lennox furnace for those who are chosen! At first glance, this program seems simple in design: Lennox Industries donates up to 100 furnaces to participating Wisconsin and Michigan Upper Peninsula Lennox dealers. Then, the dealers and their employees donate the installation materials and labor needed to install the furnaces. Behind the scenes though, you'll find a network of industry leaders coming together to make this program work!
Since the program's inception in 2010, Heat U.P. Wisconsin has installed more than 326 furnaces, providing more than $1.3 million in support to recipients throughout Wisconsin and Michigan's Upper Peninsula! In addition, thanks to Heat U.P. Wisconsin's great reputation and response, other states have been moved to implement the program! Dealers in the state of Minnesota contacted Wisconsin's Heat U.P. Wisconsin leaders to ask for help in starting the program there. As a result, Heat Up Minnesota was born in 2013. Currently, Lennox dealers in 10 other states are working to implement this program in their areas in the near future!
You can help too!! Nominate!!! The Heat U.P. Wisconsin Program is based on submissions. If they don't know of someone who is deserving, they can't help them! Nominees are chosen based on a variety of criteria, including physical, mental, or social disabilities; financial challenges; job loss; military service; community service; and more. If you think someone is deserving, nominate them!
Nominate an individual or family now at http://www.heatupwisconsin.com/nominate. All submissions are due by August 28th. Those received after that date will go into the following year nominations. Please submit one nomiantion for each individual or family. Multiple submissions for the same person or family does not increase the nominee's chances of being selected. In the event your nomination is not selected, please submit a form for them again next year if the need still exists! They try and help as many people as possible each year.
**An important note when thinking of nominating someone: the furnace provided in not compatible with mobile homes/manufactured housing. The furnace does require a complete duckwork system. Hydronic systems, boilers, wood stoves, outdoor wood boilers, electric baseboard heaters or fireplaces are not eligible to be reaplaced or added onto with this program.
