Looking for Help for a Good Cause

Wiginton is working with Family Promise of Gwinnett to sprinkler a home at 757 Moon Road in Lawrenceville that will become Promise Haven, a group home for temporarily homeless families to help them get back on their feet. We are providing the design and permitting service, and would welcome help with the installation.  Ordner Construction is providing construction management services and coordinating the other volunteer contractors.

Once we get the permit from Gwinnett County, we can send out a material list and work dates to see what folks are willing to donate. We would be primarily looking for Reliable residential sprinkler heads and CPVC piping and fittings, along with miscellaneous steel fittings and adapters, etc.

Here is a link to the organization website. https://familypromisegwinnett.org/homeless-recovery/promise-haven/

Also, below is what is available from Family Promise to anyone who donates labor or material:

1. Recognition in all marketing packets for Family Promise in the Promise Haven Renovation Flyer.
2. Social Media posts
3. Website Recognition
4. Recognition in the media (if we can't get it donated we plan to take out an ad in the papers to recognize all the companies that supported us.) 
5. At the opening of Promise Haven, we will have signage with every company's logo. We plan to invite WSBTV to this opening. 
6. In the house itself, we will have something made to hang in the house that shows all the companies and donors that gave to the project.
7. Logo on our Promise Haven T-shirt. This will most likely be distributed at the night of the opening. 
8. Recognition in our newsletter. 
9. My guess is the Promise Haven signage made at the opening will go around with me to the golf tournament and maybe the bed race as well. 

If you could please forward to membership, it would be a big help. We understand that everyone is absolutely covered up right now, so ANY help whatsoever would be appreciated. Wiginton and Family Promise of Gwinnett thank for your consideration!!

Haden B. Brumbeloe of Auburn, California, went to be with the Lord on August 27, 2020. He was 93. He was born in Alabama on March 8, 1927. It was Kidney Failure in the end that took his life.
Haden B. Brumbeloe, P.E., was a Fire Protection Engineer with 29 years of experience in fire sprinkler contracting and Publisher of Fire Protection Contractor magazine, the first independent publication for the fire sprinkler industry, with its first edition in March of 1978.
Haden served in the United States Navy during World War II. He attended Georgia Tech before going to work for Grinnell.
He was with Grinnell from 1948-1971 and “Automatic” Sprinkler Corporation of America from 1971-1977. He started as draftsman with Grinnell in Atlanta, Georgia, when fire sprinkler designers were called “Engineers” and no codes required fire sprinkler system installations. As a Sales-Estimator, he learned to sell fire sprinkler systems based on their fire protection merits and on insurance savings.
He moved from Atlanta to the San Francisco Bay Area in the early 1950s, where he eventually managed the Grinnell branch based in Emeryville, California.
At “Automatic” Sprinkler Corporation of America from 1971-1977, he became Regional Vice President of the 13 Western States and Guam. He gave two-years notice before he left “Automatic.”
After leaving “Automatic” he made a list of eleven things he could do. This list included consulting, expert witnessing, and leading seminars. He did all these things, but eventually took to number eleven on the list and started a newsletter that became FPC/Fire Protection Contractor magazine, where one of his sons, grandsons, and granddaughters work today.
He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Lillian, her three children, Catherine, Dennis, and Donna; and her grandchildren, including Nichole Root, a CrossFit Athlete who was on NBC TITAN GAMES, Nichole’s husband Bob, and their children Naomi and Gwen.
Additionally, Haden’s children from his first marriage include Haden Jr., who was killed while serving in the U.S. Army during Vietnam, Denise O’Connor, Richard, Brant, and Bob Brumbeloe; Denise’s son Liam; Richard’s wife Marge, and their children James and Jennifer, Brant’s wife Lisa, and their children Joseph and Cheyenne; and Bob’s two children Wesley and Danika.
There will not be a funeral or memorial service due to the difficulties of Covid-19 restrictions and concerns.
In lieu of flowers, please give to your favorite Christian charity, a burn center, and/or consider buying a beverage for a friend or a stranger and tell them you care about them.
