Miller Heating and Lennox Heat U.P. Wisconsin Recipient
An Elroy woman, who has dedicated her life to doing for others, has herself been the recipient of a valuable donation. Helen Mihne went to Miller Heating and Air Conditioning in Elroy for a quote for a new furnace. Milne is on Social Security and was spending 400-dollars a month heating her home on Academy Street with heating oil at $4-plus a gallon. She wanted to purchase a furnace that uses natural gas which costs less than $1 a gallon. Owner/operator of Miller Heating, Dave Miller, decided to nominate Mihne for the Lennox Heat U.P. Wisconsin program. Each year on the first Saturday in October, participating dealerships and their employees reach out within their local communities to provide free installations of high-efficiency Lennox gas furnaces for individuals and families in need. Up to one hundred furnaces are provided at no cost by Lennox with all labor and installation materials donated by the installing contractor and their employees. Miller said, “Helen does so much for her community, her church, and the children of the Royall School District.” While talking with Milhne, WRJC.com learned that Helen has been running an ongoing rummage sale at her church three days a week during the spring and summer months for 10-years entirely on donations. The rummage sales have raised approximately $50,000 which has gone for improvements to the church and now funds the $2500 annual elevator maintenance contract. Elroy Senior Citizens use the church basement for their nutrition site four days a week and the local food pantry also uses the church basement. She helps kids with new and used coats by her aluminum can collection. Helen is truly a woman who makes things happen out of almost nothing. What an amazing woman!
