AFGO is proud to support the The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art Hyperloop Team, who are entering a pod in the SpaceX Hyperloop pod competition in 2019.
The competition pits them against other college engineering teams to create the fastest and safest pod to run through SpaceX’s Hyperloop test track in Hawthorne, CA.
AFGO wishes the Cooper Union team the best of luck, and we’re happy to sponsor the creative engineers of tomorrow.
As part of AFGO’s ongoing commitment to giving back, we have again supported the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation with a donation for their 2018 51st Gala.
AFGO has made this donation in memory of Michael and William Modell, in light of our long-standing relationship with Mitchell Modell & Family.
We urge you to donate to the Foundation if you can to assist them with their important work.
On Thursday, May 24th, 2018 the office and field staff of AFGO Mechanical Services, Inc. took time to support Red Nose Day, an initiative of our client Walgreens that supports charitable organizations such as City Year and the Boys And Girls Club. Money raised goes to the Red Nose Day Fund, which supports programs that ensure children in need are safe, healthy and educated. Half the money distributed will be spent right here in America across all 50 states and Puerto Rico. The other half will be spent in some of the poorest communities in Latin America, Asia and Africa. Red Nose Day grants aim to address both the immediate needs of children living in poverty, and foster long-term change—to break the cycle of poverty and provide hope for a better future.
AFGO is proud to support Walgreens and Red Nose Day!
AFGO would like to thank PRSM and the city of Nashville for an excellent time at the 2018 PRSM National Conference. It was terrific to connect with new and old friends, as well to get out and enjoy the wonderful city of Nashville. We eagerly anticipate next year’s conference!
AFGO is growing to serve our valued customers in 2018 with brand new trucks and equipment! Remember that our vehicles are regionally zoned throughout the metro area, so even though we’re in Long Island City YOU are never far from an AFGO truck.
AFGO is a proud supporter of the Lustgarten Foundation For Pancreatic Cancer Research and we have again donated to their great work. The Lustgarten Foundation, founded in 1999 and named for the late Marc Lustgarten, is the largest private organization in America dedicated to finding a cure for pancreatic cancer. Thanks to a grant from Cablevision (of which Mr. Lustgarten was an executive) 100% of every donation to Lustgarten goes directly towards research. The Foundation has a 4-star ranking from Charity Navigator, putting it at the very top. We urge you to make a contribution to this worthy cause.
On September 23rd, the AFGO family (staff and management) traveled out to Jackson, NJ for our traditional October company outing to Six Flags Great Adventure.
With Halloween approaching, Six Flag’s “Fright Fest” theme and “Spooktacular” parade are always a big hit. We always enjoy the opportunity to have fun together as a company after a very busy and productive summer season. We enjoyed a big family-style meal, took a ride through the safari, and enjoyed the big coasters and other rides.
Going into the fall/winter cooling HVAC season, this was a great way to refresh the batteries and enjoy each other’s company. We hope you all have a great Halloween season.
June is Alzheimer’s Awareness & Brain Awareness Month (ABAM) in the United States, and AFGO is proud to “go purple” and support the effort to raise awareness of this condition.
Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in America, and the latest estimates are that over 5 million people in this country suffer from the disease.
Please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association for this worthy cause to #EndAlz.
