Philanthropy Fortifies Communities says StLC Mechanical Contractor

“In the greater St. Louis metropolitan area, both large and small business owners have an opportunity to create a difference in our communities--by funding or even donating your organization’s time,” suggests Robert Hoffmann, the founder of Hoffmann Brother’s Mechanical Contractors.

“Because we’re in a position to make a difference in our communities, many organizations call for our support. While we’re not telling any small business how to dole out their time, we’d like to share some of our most important foundations and charities,” says the spokesperson of Hoffmann Brothers Mechanical Contractors.

The Missouri USO happens to be a personal cause dear to Mr. Hoffmann’s heart. When his son opted to serve his country, over the family business, Mr. Hoffmann elected to serve his country with the company’s commercial HVAC maintenance.

Homelessness and domestic violence continue to plague communities of the greater St. Louis metropolitan area. St. Louis Metro Homeless Center and SHALOM HOUSE, Metro Homeless Center & Family Services represent two foundations making a difference in St. Louis City neighborhoods.

Foster parents play an integral part of the St. Louis City community. Because these residents are raising children, who would otherwise be without a family, some need extra financial resources for food, clothing and other household related expenses.

Many foster households of the St. Louis Angels’ Arms cannot afford to maintain a home’s furnace, boiler and heating system. To help promote safety and leverage their heating system’s energy efficiency, Hoffmann Brothers extends volunteerism for the families of St. Louis Angels Arms.

Spread the word of unity, peace and community in St. Louis City.

In addition to the homeless, stray and abused animals need love and support too. Hoffmann Brothers donates and volunteers its time to the Stray Rescue St. Louis, keeping abandoned canines, and other pets out of the cold and extremely hot temperatures. If you would like to contribute to this cause, please visit

This holiday season and next year, we plan to continue to fortify our community with funding and volunteerism.
