In its seventh year of providing support for local nonprofits, the Horizon Heat and Air Charitable Giving Program is pleased to announce they have rebranded and expanded for 2023.

The program is now the Work with Heart Charitable Giving Program and is adding three new partners: local companies Boyd Automotive, Edward Jones – Financial Advisor: Ken Adams, and Triangle Stop. The three businesses are joining Horizon Heat and Air, Hannah Flanagan’s, and Southern Alarm and Security in the Work with Heart Charitable Giving Program to give back to the community.

Nonprofit organizations wishing to apply for the 2023 Work with Heart Charitable Giving Program can access applications online at www.cfhcforever.org/grants/cgp. Applications will be accepted through Friday, February 10, 2023. Last year, $48,000 was awarded to 28 nonprofits whose programs range from housing assistance to medical care and after-school education.


“Giving back to this community is a pillar of my personal and business philosophies,” says Horizon Owner Dan Poeta. “I feel fortunate to have this community’s support and in turn, be able to provide these grants year after year. I am especially excited to have three new partners in this charitable endeavor and look forward to seeing the positive impact our pooled dollars will have.”
