Clay's Climate Control Awards Local First Responder with Free Furnace and Installation to Celebrate the Winner's Impact Within the Community


Linwood, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/09/2020 --Clay's Climate Control has announced the winner of this year's Furnace Installation Giveaway to a deserving First Responder within their community.

This year's winner is Jessica Avellino of Egg Harbor Township.

Jessica is a local nurse at a long term care facility who was one of the front line workers to care for COVID patients during the initial outbreak of the virus.

Her husband, Wayne Avellino, sent a beautiful letter nominating Jessica. In his nomination, he wrote this about his wife, "After 12 + hour days, she would come home from work, start her day at our house then head to her mother's house where she helped care for her sister's six children and her own mother. Jessica never complained of her long and exhausting days, despite being painfully poked for Covid testing every week! She is a wonderful person who cares for others over herself."

This is the second consecutive year that Clay's Climate Control has offered this contest within their community. It is important to owners Jen and Clay Pierce that they give back to the community that has supported them and their business over the years.

"Clay and I both grew up in the area and we love to be able to support the community," said Co-Owner of Clay's Climate Control Jen Pierce. "We know that this year in particular has been very difficult for all first responders and healthcare workers. To be able to install a free furnace for someone deserving and in need warms our hearts. When Wayne's nomination of his wife was chosen as the winner we were delighted!"

As fate would have it, Jessica was given the news of her nomination and award on a special day for her and her husband.

"Jessica did not know that her husband had nominated her and when I called to share the news she was shocked," said Jen. "I read the nomination letter to her and she immediately began to cry. She reminded me that Clay's Climate Control did the original installation of their furnace almost 20 years ago! She also shared that the day I told her was their anniversary! What a present!"
