FORT MYERS, FLORIDA (December 19, 2012) An AC repair company in Ft Myers is contributing more than cool air to the Southwest Florida community. The company recently donated building space, which was used as a temporary “Santa’s Workshop” by a charitable organization called “Stockings-4-Kids”. The charity made donations of more than 1,000 goodie filled stockings over the holidays to less fortunate children.

“We are a firm believer in giving back to the community,” said Mike Clark, United Mechanical, Inc. "We were more than happy to donate a portion of our building space to serve as “Santa’s Workshop”, and help these children who’s holidays may have otherwise been a little grim this year."

“Stockings 4 Kids” was founded in 2010 by Lee Knapp. She brought together a dynamic team of 20 women who helped raise money and items to fill 570 Christmas stockings. These stockings were donated to needy children and delivered for Christmas day! Each year, this effort has continued, and reached an impressive 1,000 stockings in 2012. Lee also organized a “Kids Helping Kids” program, in which young adults and older children learn the true meaning of the Holiday Season by working in “Santa’s Workshop”, stuffing stockings for other children. This goal was achieved through the help of numerous volunteers, sponsors, and the donation of building space by UMI.

The stockings were distributed to a number of local children’s charities in Southwest Florida, including: Dr. Piper Center (250 stockings), Children’s Home Society (150 stockings), Big Brothers/Big Sisters (110 stockings), Salvation Army (100 stockings), Community Cooperative (70 stockings), Child Care Center (70 stockings), Café of Life (60 stockings), Children’s Advocacy Center ( 60 stockings), Act Shelter (45 stockings), Healthy Choice Ministries (45 stockings), Community Pregnancy Clinics (40 stockings).
