    BLUFFTON, S.C. – As part of the company’s 10 year anniversary celebration, Covert Aire™ has created an extensive charity campaign program encompassing needs throughout Beaufort County. The locally owned heating and air company is inviting the public to join them in these efforts to provide heat for those without through Operation Warm Up, to provide food in the Beaufort area for the Fourth Quarter Drive to End Hunger and Toys for Tots.


    Members of the Covert Aire team completed various “random acts of kindness” throughout our community this summer in commemoration of the company’s anniversary. The company’s efforts this winter, although more intentional, are an extension of these acts of kindness. They reflect one of Covert Aire’s core values - giving back by helping others in their community.




    Covert Aire™ is teaming up for the third year with Mingeldorff’s, Bryant Heating and Cooling Systems, and Lowcountry Radio Group to fix, replace or repair selected homes without heat this winter through their charitable drive, Operation Warm Up. Over the last two years, the Bluffton-based heating and air company has donated over $20,000 in services to families in need across the Lowcountry.


    The last two years, Operation Warm Up has brought such joy to my team and to those we were able to help,” says Mike Covert, President of Covert Aire™.We want to do what we can to help those who need it stay warm this winter.”


    The public can assist by sharing a description of anyone they know who may need help. To be considered for Operation Warm Up simply submit their story explaining why they have a heating issue and cannot afford to fix it. Non-profit groups and civic organizations can also submit nominations of someone in need of heating repairs.


    Submit your story or the story of your family or friend at www.covertaire.com by clicking “Contact”. Fill out the form including the story of the individual or family you are nominating. All entries received will be confidentially sent to Mike Covert’s office directly. Forms must be submitted between Nov. 1 through Dec. 2 in order to be considered. Those chosen will not have their names released, unless explicit consent to use the name, likeness and photograph is given.


    In addition to Covert Aire™, with Mingeldorff’s, Bryant Heating and Cooling Systems, and Lowcountry Radio Group are sponsors of Operation Warm Up.




    The company will also be encouraging the spirit of giving by inviting customers and the public to participate in the Fourth Quarter Drive to End Hunger. This food drive will again benefit Help of Beaufort this year. For every non-perishable item donated, customers can receive $1 off of a Covert Aire™ service up to $25.


    We want to help families in our area who are struggling to put food on their table this winter,” says Covert. “Everyone deserves to celebrate the holidays without being hungry.”


    Best items include: peanut butter, jelly, canned meat, pasta, pasta sauce, canned fruit, rice, juice, canned/dry soup, sugar, flour, dry cereal, vegetable oil and grits. Customers can give their items to a Covert Aire™ service tech or anyone may participate by dropping items off to the Covert Aire™ offices, 39 Persimmon Street #602, Bluffton, SC.




    Covert Aire™ is also teaming up with Bluffton Self Help to provide toys for children in need this holiday season. The company will serve as an official drop off site for Toys for Tots for our area. The public is encouraged to stop in with new, unwrapped toys beginning in November.


    What better way to celebrate the holidays then by bringing a smile to the children in our community,” says Covert. “We hope our customer and friends will get in the spirit of the season by joining us in participating in Toys for Tots.”


    Covert Aire™ has a media partner this year assisting in their efforts - Lowcountry Radio Group 104.9 the SURF and SC 103FM, and Easy 106.5FM.
