Joel Rimmer, vice president of Oldfield’s Appliance & Home Theater, believes that a community is only as strong as the people who live there.
“We have been blessed to have been a part of the Eugene/Springfield community as a family owned business since 1936,” said Rimmer, whose company sells, installs and services major appliances and home theater equipment. “We are part of this community and have raised our families here. We believe that by helping those institutions who provide direct services to people in need, we are helping to build a stronger and more caring community.”
Recently, the company helped ShelterCare install a variety of major kitchen appliances in the agency’s new Center for Programs and Services. Oldfield’s provided the equipment at deeply discounted prices. Inventory included a refrigerator designated for use by agency clients meeting with counselors and staff, a stove, a washer and a dryer.
“We became aware that ShelterCare was in need of some appliances for their new facility and we’re happy to be a part of (that effort),” he said.
ShelterCare gives a big thanks to Joel and the entire Oldfields’ Appliance & Home Theater team for ShelterCaring about Homelessness.
