Additional furnace donations allow 3 families to be helped this year

  • Two of the families being helped live in the Aztec area, while the third lives in the West Hammond district southwest of Bloomfield.
  • Approximately 80 nominations or applications for the program were received this year.
  • Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning already is planning on continuing the program next year.

FARMINGTON — A trio of San Juan County families will have the gift of a warm home this holiday season after the annual furnace giveaway program organized by a Farmington business was joined by two other firms.

Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning has been giving away and installing a Coleman furnace for a needy San Juan County family every year since 2019, according to Michelle Robbins, who owns the company with her husband. But this year, the business was able to warm up the holidays for three families when two other companies stepped in and donated furnaces, which Robbins workers will install.

“It was awesome,” Robbins said. “Actually, after we did the site visits (which are used by Robbins personnel to pick which family would receive the prize), we couldn’t really decide among the three finalists. And it was about that time that we got a call from the New Mexico Gas Company.”
