Contractors Electric serves Lane County and nearby surrounding communities, providing quality electrical construction and repairs.
In December 2015 the company donated $1,500 in materials and labor to improve the exterior lighting at ShelterCare's Housing, Health & Wellness facility, which provides emergency shelter, transitional housing and longer-term respite care to families and individuals. The new, brighter lights provide an added level of security, and by replacing the old, incandescent bulbs with new LED bulbs, the upgrade also offers cost and energy savings.
Co-owners Steven Leuck and Jeff Brown believe that an integral part of serving their community is supporting local charitable organizations that provide crucial services to those who would otherwise have no one to turn to in times of need.
"Being able to support groups like ShelterCare is a privilege," shares Steven, "because we know anything we can give genuinely helps others."
Contractors Electric provides new, remodel, troubleshooting and diagnostic repairs for all electrical and low-voltage systems—for commercial, residential or industrial clients. They also offer 24/7 emergency services. "When you call our main office number," Steven says, "you will reach one of us in person—not an answering service—no matter the time of day or night."
We are grateful to Steven and Jeff for all the work they did for our Housing, Health & Wellness program. Ensuring that our housing units are clean, comfortable, and worry-free places to live is an ongoing task, and the financial obligation for upkeep and maintenance is only increasing. Sponsors like Contractors Electric help ease this burden, and allow us to focus more money and attention on people and programs.
Steven also shares another reason he and Jeff choose to support ShelterCare. "ShelterCare is special to us because someone we know has a close family member who struggles with some of the very things ShelterCare works to heal."
"We often wish there was a way to give more than we have," Steven adds. "Our hope is that others in our community will recognize the incredible value ShelterCare provides our community and society."
