Carter Plumbing was recently in Haiti installing plumbing in a local village for an orphanage. Jamie and Lisa Carter, owners of Carter Plumbing, went to Haiti on a mission trip with Crusades for Christ. Together they were able to install the plumbing for a new bathroom, and install piping to bring water to an area where the orphans can reside. Many of the orphans were abandoned when their parents died in the earthquake. Haiti is still under major duress with the devastating destruction caused by the earthquake. Millions still live in tents and have very limited food resources. The sanitation and water purification methods are minimal and many people are subject to contaminated drinking water. Carter Plumbing had the opportunity be a “plumber without borders!” It was an amazing blessing to Jamie and Lisa in offering their gifts and giving hope for these orphans.
Other Organizations Carter Plumbing Supports
Carter’s Support Water.org
This year we did a fund raiser and donated $500.00 to Water.org. They are changing lives in 3rd world countries by digging wells, and educating the citizens to purify their water. 3.4 Million people die annually from a water related disease. 780 Million people lack access to clean water. More people in the world have access to a mobile phone than a toilet. Matt Damon is the leader of this organization and a huge supporter for fresh water.
The Carter’s supported their daughter Lauren on a Mission trip to Kenya, Africa to study Leadership in an impoverished nation.
Carter’s support the Leukemia Society Light the Night
This year our company was able to support a Light the Night team, in which, we collected $2000.00 for the organization. Lisa Carter’s father had Leukemia, and the walk is very dear to the company.
Carter’s support The Joseph Groh Foundation
On Father’s Day of 2008, following a day spent with family, Joe decided to go for an aerobic bike ride along the trails of Lake Grapevine. At one point the trail turned sharply left and the front tire of Joe’s mountain bike slid on some sand and off the trail. Joe was thrown headfirst over the handlebars, breaking his neck and damaging his spinal cord at the C-4 vertebra. Knowing that life had suddenly and unalterably changed, Joe vowed to never look back, never give up and to remain positive. We are supporting Joe’s foundation which helps people in the trades who suffer a permanent disability.
