A Drop of Kindness – HomeServe Donation Helps Louisville Water’s Affordability Efforts
Louisville, KY (July 14, 2021) – A $12,000 donation from HomeServe USA, a leading provider of home repair solutions, will help provide assistance to Louisville Water customers who struggle to pay their bill. HomeServe’s donation to the Louisville Water Foundation is part of the Foundation’s Drops of Kindness program that provides customers with direct bill relief.
“A core value at HomeServe is doing good in the communities we serve. This doesn’t just mean offering residents access to affordable repair plans that help take the inconvenience and financial burden out of home emergencies. It also means seeing the needs of a community and working together with our partners to find solutions,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of HomeServe North America. “We are proud to have been a partner of Louisville Water for over 14 years and are pleased to help them provide a helping hand to those in need.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 18,000 Louisville Water customers have struggled to pay their bill. Through the Louisville Water Foundation and Drops of Kindness, more than $5 million has been granted to customers to help with an unpaid bill.
HomeServe has been a partner of Louisville Water since 2007, offering customers access to low-cost interior and exterior plumbing repair plans. Since the partnership began, almost 96,000 Louisville Water customers have signed up for at least one plan and more than 206,000 plans have been issued. Over the years, 74,000 jobs have been performed for these Louisville area residents, saving them a combined $34.6 million in repair expenses. Without a service plan, these are repairs that Louisville Water customers would have had to pay for out-of-pocket. Additionally, through HomeServe and the HomeServe Cares Foundation, over $74,000 in pro bono repairs were completed in 2020 alone for Louisville area residents. Since 2013, HomeServe has contributed $132,000 to Louisville Water’s Foundation.
“We have been able to do so much good during the pandemic through the Louisville Water Foundation and our ‘Drops of Kindness’ program,” said Spencer Bruce, President and CEO of Louisville Water. “We are grateful for HomeServe’s ongoing support, which enables us to provide water bill assistance to those in need.”
