The holiday season is right around the corner and we have TWO important suggestions to do before your holiday vacation starts:

  • Check your AC unit! Your winter guests might be escaping their White Christmas up north but they still want to sleep in a cool home. If needed, repair or replace your AC unit before your winter guests arrive. Because the compressor unit is housed outside, it may have sustained some damage during the storm. Your AC unit may have been working after the storm but the water damage can take a toll on the unit so we suggest getting it checked out ASAP. If you do need to repair or replace your AC unit, these companies can help: Aire by Design, Inc., DebonAir, Going-Aire, Houston Air, Island Air Control and R.G. Mechanical Services Corp. 

  • Make your charitable donation before December 31st! Contributions are deductible in the year made. To make it count during this tax year, gifts must be made by December 31. Are you interested in making a charitable donation but not sure which organization to donate to? The below non-profit chamber members are all located in the Florida Keys and are all not-for-profit designated 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Code.

Many of them had extra expenses and had to cancel major fundraising events as a result of the damage caused by Hurricane Irma. If you are interested in making a tax deductible donation... DONATE TODAY!
