A local electrician in Albuquerque donated "countless" hours to redo the electrical systems at a drug treatment facility. Andy, the electrician, works at Osceola Energy. His coworker reached out to a local news outlet's "Pay It 4ward" recognition program to nominate him for the award.
KOB4 Eyewitness News featured Andy last month, recognizing all the work he had put into the Victory Outreach Drug Addiction Treatment Center. "Because of his work, the women living in this rehabilitation center are able to stay warm with their space heaters, and no longer fear their electricity will short-circuit," said Chris Fortson, the coworker who nominated Andy.
Osceola Energy got involved and donated all the materials necessary for his project. So far, Andy has donated about $2,000 worth of his labor.
