NIPSCO partners with TradeWinds
Supporting the health and safety of its participants, employees, and visitors!
TradeWinds Services, Inc. enhanced the health and safety of its participants, employees, and visitors, thanks to a $10,000 donation from NIPSCO. TradeWinds installed air purifiers in its main facilities in Merrillville and in their group homes throughout the local communities.
“The health and safety of our participants, their families, our staff, and our visitors are a top priority at TradeWinds”, said CEO, Jon Gold. “We have hundreds of people of all abilities and ages entering and exiting our facility every day, and we want to take every precaution to keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible. This funding from NIPSCO will assist us in doing so.”
The air purifiers were installed by Budd Mechanical Systems, Hammond. “iWave is an air purifying device that installs in any air conditioning or heating system. When air passes over the iWave, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke, and odors in the air, creating a healthy environment without producing any harmful byproducts,” said Dana Booth, owner of Budd Mechanical Systems in Hammond.
TradeWinds serves people with special needs by empowering them to realize their full potential. Numerous children’s and adult programs are administered at the main centers and in the group homes each and every day.
“Health and safety of our customers and employees is a big priority for NIPSCO,” said Rick Calinski, Director of Public Affairs and Economic Development for NIPSCO. “We are proud to partner with TradeWinds to enhance the safety and wellbeing of all who enter their facility. TradeWinds offers such great services in Northwest Indiana, and NIPSCO has been a proud supporter for decades.”
