Business rides to rescue

A ‘fox’ in shining armour saved the day for a local non-profit group.

When the Kindale Developmental Association held a fundraiser for their numerous programs, the bids were flying fast and furious.

But when one promised product fell through, Kindale was left scrambling.

Enter Fox and Sons, a Vernon-based plumbing, cooling, heating and electrical company that stepped up and offered to finish the job for free.

Fox and Sons finished installing an air conditioning unit for the winning bidder, and Cindy Masters, development officer for Kindale, could not be more thankful to company owner Ted Fox.

“He really was the knight in shining armour. He stepped up to save the day,” Masters said.

Fox and Sons owner Ted Fox said he appreciates the work Kindale does and was happy to help them out.

For no charge to Kindale or winning bidder Glenn Taylor, Fox and Sons finished installing the air conditioning unit and then gave him a price break on upgrading his furnace.

Fox said it was just the right thing to do.

“Kindale does wonderful things for the community,” Fox said. “I know we had worked with them a number of times in the past over the years and when I heard Kindale was having some trouble and figured I could help with a little of it, that’s what we’re here for.”
