Local Plumbers Giving Back to Our Community
We know that there are others around us who need our help. We can’t help everyone, but we sure can help some! As local plumbers we pledge to share 10% of our profits with people or organizations in need in this community.
Your money is giving back. It’s one more reason that you can feel good about choosing Goodman Plumbing to be your local plumbers.
Some of the charities we have supported:

It Made a Difference for That One.
A Single Starfish, by Loren Eiseley
A little story that explains the reason we as local plumbers want to give back.
As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.
He came closer still and called out “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”
The young man paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean.”
“I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” asked the somewhat startled wise man.
To this, the young man replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”
Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, “But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can’t possibly make a difference!”
At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean.
As it met the water, he said, “It made a difference for that one.”
