Anyone who has met Frank can feel his genuine passion for helping others and he has instilled that as a core value of this company.

The start of General Air Conditioning and Plumbing publically supporting the fight against breast cancer You never know when it begins in your life — a time when you find yourself standing up to be a part of supporting the fight against the horrible disease that has ravaged our world called breast cancer. One of General’s first personal interactions with breast cancer was in 2008 when their marketing consultant, Barbara Duffy, was diagnosed with stage 3B cancer at the young age of 40. The troops followed her journey; seeing life through her eyes in a very intimate connection with the journal she and her family kept, thanks to CaringBridge . Everyone learned about all the different obstacles that must be endured to fight the terrible disease with no buffer. Click here to read. Already being a part of the philanthropic force of the valley, they all knew they had to help those locally in need fighting this as well. Since that time, the General and troops have been able to support and meet some amazing people. Many you pass by on the streets every day and don’t even know it. They’re fighters, and General Air Conditioning and Plumbing is proud to stand behind them. Since 2008, the General and troops have donated over $37,841 in support of Breast Cancer awareness here in the valley. It’s with dedicated volunteers that make up organizations like the Desert Cancer Foundation who tirelessly arrange fundraisers to spread the word for involvement. Last year, Frank accepted a position to serve on the board for the Desert Cancer Foundation’s annual Paint El Paseo Pink Walk.
