Buchheit Handshakes for Heroes

September 24, 2018

Buchheit of Centralia announced the launch of their latest outreach program, Handshakes for Heroes. This program was established to thank the everyday heroes of our communities. During the week of 9-11, Buchheit team members from each division went to their local responders, shook their hands, and expressed their gratitude through a gift basket containing Buchheit gift cards or coupons, food, and supplies. Milwaukee Tools also donated Sawzall Reciprocating Saw Kits to our local Fire Departments. Buchheit of Centralia Store Manager Ashley Thacker and Customer Service Manager Jennifer Gazda expressed their gratitude to the Centralia Police Department, Centralia Fire Department, and the Lifestar Ambulance Service. “We are so pleased with how the first year of our Handshakes for Heroes promotion,” said Buchheit Enterprises, Inc. CEO Tim Buchheit. “Our responders selflessly dedicate their lives to our communities. As a community, we should all remember to thank them and support them. Our mission is simple, but we hope that others will follow suit and express their gratitude to our responders too.” You can show your appreciation to our heroes by coming in-store and nominating your favorite local emergency responder organization for a $200 Buchheit gift card.
