HALO

Helping All Live On (HALO) is a philanthropic organization open to friends, family members and employees of HARDI members as well as the trade press. From the organization’s earliest beginnings more than 50 years ago, it has been dedicated to philanthropic giving, promoting HVACR and educational endeavors.

GIVING

HALO has focused fundraising efforts for Homes for Our Troops. HFOT troops’ mission is to build specially adapted homes for service members who have been severely injured in combat operations since September 11, 2001. All specially adapted homes are built at no cost to the veteran thanks to donations from thousands of individuals, foundation grants, corporate sponsors, professional trades people and generous support from countless volunteers.

To date HALO has raised a total of more than $150,000 (in cash donations and products) for Homes for Our Troops.

EDUCATION

HALO continually strives to support education by providing scholarship funds for community colleges participating in the Industrial Careers Pathway program and supporting the HARDI Foundation’s member scholarship program.

FRIENDSHIP

HALO isn’t all work and no play! Many lifelong friendships have developed through involvement with HALO. Each year we hold a formal meeting at the HARDI Annual Conference. We host speakers, excursions, banquets and receptions, and other activities. We work hard to raise money for education and other organizations, but we have fun doing it.

“The friends you make in HALO are friends that you look forward to seeing each year at the annual meeting. Membership in HALO makes the meeting so much more enjoyable because you see old friends each year and make new friends too.”
