Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES - Feb 01, 2017 - ‘Tis the season for giving, and continuing to spread joy after the holidays is LRS Plumbing – a family owned and operated plumbing business proudly serving Los Angeles communities since 1997. As part of their ongoing philanthropy efforts, LRS Plumbing started “Our Season of Giving” to give back to their community by providing services free of charge to a disadvantaged person/family. This season, the Los Angeles County Fire Department by way of their African-American Fire Fighters association THE STENTORIANS and local home improvement businesses, will lend their support and manpower to help with the success of the community project on Monday, February 6, 2017 in the 800 block of 76th Place in Los Angeles, CA from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The recipient for the 2017 Season of Giving is a vibrant, 101-year-old great-great Grandmother, Ms. Missouri Billingslea, who has lived in the home since 1953. Billingslea has a dire need for many upgrades throughout the home, but most important is her front bathroom where bathing from her caregivers has become difficult because it is not in ADA compliance.
Ms. Billingslea will be gifted an ADA compliant bathroom in the front of the home to include an accessible toilet with grab bars, sink with ADA fixtures, a roll-in shower plus a complete makeover to the rear bathroom that has been inoperable for over 7 years. With the help of local sponsors Home Depot, True Restoration, HP Paint Services, Superior Carpet and Flooring and Dave Matthews Electric, the home will be fitted with all new plumbing, interior painting, home fixtures, new flooring and drought tolerant landscaping. LRS Plumbing and their team of sponsors will provide these enhancements free of charge.
“Our 2017 Season of Giving recipient is a deserving Great-great Grandmother who was selected from various entries since our outreach this November. After reading her story and assessing the home, we were compelled to choose her and reveal it on her 102nd birthday,” says General Manager Leonard Redway.
Led by LRS Plumbers team members, others participating in the day of activities are: Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby, STENTORIAN President and Battalion Chief Robert Harris, Fire Captain Joe Williams, Mark Ridley-Thomas and 9th District City Councilman Curren Price. Ms. Billingslea is one of his constituents.
STENTORIAN President Robert Harris says, “This event was brought to our attention by one of our trusted Fire Captains, Joe Williams, and immediately we were on board because it was a perfect fit to expand our outreach with the community.”
LRS Plumbing’s “Season of Giving” is sponsored by: Home Depot, True Restoration, Superior Carpet and Flooring, Dave Matthews Electric, HP paint services, 94.7 THE WAVE and WATTS Coffee House.

About The STENTORIANS
The STENTORIANS organization was founded in 1954 by African-American firefighters of the Los Angeles City and Los Angeles County Fire Departments. Their purpose and goals were to band together and address the discrimination and segregation challenges in the City’s Fire Department. The name STENTORIANS, was selected for its appropriateness from the word Stentor, a Greek Herald described in the Iliad as having the voice of fifty men, extremely loud and powerful, audibly expressing a very forceful sound. Today, the STENTORIANS function as a community-based and social organization for their membership and their families. www.lacostentorians.org
