Merseyside air conditioning and refrigeration firm Everkool is supporting foodbanks during the coronavirus lockdown as it seeks to play its “small part” in keeping vital services running across the area.
The Bootle-based company, which has seen some of its projects delayed due to social distancing measures, is offering free maintenance and repair work to foodbanks and charities providing food to struggling families.
The firm is also working with a variety of supermarkets to ensure their refrigeration systems are fully functioning given the increase in customer numbers and food deliveries.
Craig Greenwood, Everkool founder, says: “Like all businesses, Everkool has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and the current lockdown.
“Some of our projects have been put on hold but we will hopefully be in a position to get back to business as usual.
“This isn’t the case for a lot of people who have seen their jobs lost and incomes disappear and who are now forced to rely on foodbanks.
“We wanted to do something meaningful during this crisis and that’s why we have committed some resources to support charities and food banks.
“We are also on call to supermarkets and other important suppliers to help keep them moving during this demanding time.
“A spirit of solidarity is fundamental in the battle against COVID-19. We are proud to be playing a small part in keeping vital initiatives running throughout Merseyside.”
Everkool was established by Craig Greenwood in 2009. It is one of the biggest providers of air conditioning and ventilation services in the North West.
