Longtime island HVAC system provider Bainbridge Heating and Air will donate a brand new ductless heating system to the Fort Ward Community Hall project.
Bainbridge Heating owner Curt Carlisle pledged the system, valued at $5,500, to the community hall campaign this week.
This is a very generous donation, and a real boost for the community hall project!
The campaign just now stepping up outreach to local businesses for in-kind donations of materials and support, and we’re grateful to Curt and Bainbridge Heating for being first to answer the call.
Curt says he is impressed by the neighborhood’s efforts to restore the building, constructed in 1910 as part the Coast Artillery Corps fortifications that guarded Rich Passage and the Bremerton Naval Shipyard.
“It’s a neat building with a great history, and it’s going to make a great resource for the whole island community,” he says. “We’re pleased to be able to help out.”
Any potential donor or community group that would like more information on the project can email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a presentation and building tour.
