Our 2022 Charity Showdown has ended after an explosive amount of support!
Every year, our maintenance program members (Peterman Protection Club) nominate the charities that mean the most to them. We compile them into a March Madness-style bracket and have the community vote every week on their favorites.
The final charity in each division is selected as one of our partners for the year. These organizations receive a donation from us every quarter funded by $5 from every service call we run for our Protection Club members. Last year we donated over $70,000 to our partners.
Emerging from the sixty-four charities at the beginning of March, we’re excited to announce that the winners of our 2022 Charity Showdown are:
