METAIRIE — Following Hurricane Ida, David Tindell with Lobell Sales representing Navien, reached out to local business owner and PHCC member, Leon Molinario Jr., owner of Leon’s Plumbing in Metairie, to offer assistance to residents in the path of Hurricane Ida who needed to replace damaged water heaters.

Tindell stated, “Brock Adams, the South Central regional sales manager with Navien, reached out to me and asked if I could help facilitate the distribution of Navien tankless water heaters to Hurricane Ida victims. I enthusiastically told him I would be happy to help.”

Adams and Tindell generously donated 10 new Navien water heaters to Molinario to be distributed to local customers in need.

“We were happy to help people that were not able to get help from their insurance,” said Molinario.

PHCCLA appreciates the partnership with Lobell Sales and Navien to make these donations as the rebuild and recovery from the hurricane continue.
