Help the General Help a Deserving Family for Christmas

Have you ever had a little bit of an empty feeling around the holidays? The house couldn’t be any more perfect. The tree is beautifully decorated and the shopping is almost done. But there’s still something missing. You just don’t feel satisfied. Sometimes the best thing you can do, is do something nice for a stranger just because it makes you feel good.

General Air Conditioning & Plumbing will lead by example to show we are about much more than air conditioning repair in Palm Springs and Palm Desert.  As we reflect on the amazing year and the goodness we have been blessed with in 2017, our team decided again this year is the perfect time to give back to someone in need. We need your help to make it a success. We call it Comfort for the Holidays. We’re not talking about a little old heating repair in Palm Springs. No sir, the General’s troops will donate and install a brand-new Lennox air conditioning and heating system for one deserving family just in time for Christmas.

What we want from you is your nominations. Tell us about your friends or neighbors who need help this holiday season. The General won’t be able to help all of them, but your nominations will make it easier to find a truly deserving family. Here’s the information you have to give us for any nomination you make:

  • First & last name of the family in need
  • Their address
  • A description of why they need help
  • Your first & last name and phone number (in case we need more information)

The General gives our guarantee that you can do this anonymously, and no information you give us will be made public. We will respect the privacy of anyone who is nominated. We are accepting nominations from now through December 15. We are giving you several ways to make your nomination:

  1. Online through
  2. Email at
  3. Snail mail
  4. In person at our office
  5. We will accept a video nomination showing why someone you know is in need

For U.S. mail and in-person nominations, our offices are located at:

31170 Reserve Drive

Thousand Palms, CA 92276

Please take the time to help the General find a deserving family. Along the way, maybe you’ll find a way to help someone else who’s in need this holiday season. A little help from you can make a big difference, and who knows, it might change that empty feeling you get around the holidays. It’s just another way to remind ourselves the Christmas spirit isn’t about the fancy decorations, extravagant food & drink, or the gifts. It’s about filling your house, your neighborhood, and by extension the world, with hope and love.

Don’t wait, send those nominations now and help us find the most deserving family in the Coachella Valley. Comfort for the Holidays is just one small part of the General’s year-long give back campaign. Another reason they call us the best little air conditioning and plumbing company in the desert.

Need to confirm we will have landing page again this year.
