Thank You All

Over a 6 week period Dixon Ace Hardware and Lumber asked their customers if they would like to “round up” their totals to the nearest dollar in order to accumulate funds that would be given to Dixon Family Services. Today they brought DFS a check for $800!!!

Owners of Dixon Hardware, Stacey and Tony Tryba, said they heard our plea to help Dixon Family Services keep our doors open so we can continue to serve struggling families and individuals in Dixon. Yet again our hearts are warmed by this community’s creative ways to support our non-profit organization!!

On behalf of everyone at Dixon Family Services and the people we serve, THANK YOU DIXON ACE HARDWARE AND LUMBER AND ALL OF YOUR GENEROUS CUSTOMERS!!!

Things Just Sometimes Have a Way of Working Out

Several weeks ago Dixon Family Services was suffering from a “broken” air conditioning unit.  Right in the middle of a triple digit spell we had no choice but to call a repair company.  We knew it was going to be expensive as the last time we needed repair it was over $800 and we were told at that time that all 3 of our commercial AC units would need replacement soon as it’s been almost 22 years since the Dixon Family Services organization completely renovated the very old building that once housed the Dixon Police Department, City Hall and a Dixon Municipal Courtroom.  The complete gut and rebuild was funded by grants secured by then Executive Director, PJ Davis and totaled near $400,000 for the project.

Needless to say, in these days of budget uncertainties, we were dreading the cost of a repair of one of our old 1998 AC units.  Well, on the exact day that someone was coming from a local AC company, a man named Aaron showed up and offered his services.  Aaron is retired from the profession of heat and air conditioning repairs.  He told us he had heard ‘through the grapevine of social media” of our problem and would take a look.

Up in the hot attic on a very hot day, Aaron spent a couple hours up and down in our attic and outside to the AC unit.  He replaced our filters and determined that a fan was needed.  He ordered the fan through a warehouse with his still current contractor’s license making it much less than we would have had to spend.  Two days later Aaron and his son, Kyle showed up and installed the fan, a new thermostat and free-on to the unit.  We were back in business with wonderful coolness.

Aaron wouldn’t take anything for his numerous hours of work.  We are very grateful that he heard about us and made it his mission to help us.  He believed it was the right thing to do and I am pretty sure that watching and helping his father in this act of kindness for us will help make Kyle a good man as well.

Thank you Aaron and Kyle!
