Hike for the Homeless

Morningside Shelter held their 3rd Annual Hike for the Homeless on October 5, 2013. Thanks to generous community support, nearly $20,000 was raised to benefit the Shelter, which is located in Brattleboro, VT.  Cota & Cota’s team, (L-R) Matthew Satterfield, Jill Kelley, Deborah Satterfield, Jaimi Russell, Harold Elliott, and Jennifer Ruderman Priestley, raised nearly $300. It was a great hike with fun company for a good cause!

Punt, Pass & Kick!

Sponsored by the NFL, the “Punt, Pass & Kick” program curriculum is designed to teach youths practical skills about the fundamentals of football and team building. In September, Jenn and Casey Cota, Eric Chapin and Chris Moore brought the program to Hadley Field in Bellows Falls, VT. The Cotas sponsored the event, which was managed by Jenn Cota. Kids were helped by Casey, Eric and Chris. The kids had a great time showing their football skills. The winners move on to Massachusetts for the next round.

Football Camp

Three years ago, Casey Cota noticed a need for helping young athletes purchase football equipment. His solution? Organize a football camp to benefit the Connecticut Valley Pee Wee Football League. Children in grades 3-8 gather for one week every August for football camp. The league has now grown to over 100 participants. High school volunteers help with coaching duties to acquire the community service hours they need to graduate. There are also quite a few Cota & Cota employees that volunteer as coaches throughout the week as well. At the end of the week, participants get a t-shirt and pizza party. Big thanks to Casey for organizing the camp, Eric Chapin, and the following Cota & Cota employees for volunteering their time to see that everyone wins: Jim Tully, Harold Elliott, Bill Otis, Tucker Wilkinson and Grant Christiansen. You guys have made a difference!

Marinaville!

On July 5, 2013, Cota & Cota partnered with WTSA for their sixth annual Marinaville promotion, held at The Marina restaurant in Brattleboro.  We sponsored a “Summer of Choice” event, where party-goers could sign up to win a choice between taking home a Blue Rhino patio heater or a Mosquito Magnet. Our winner, Tom Shields, chose the Mosquito Magnet.
Despite the humidity, there was a great turnout and we had a lot of fun! Check out WTSA’s website to see all photos of the event.

Congratulations, Tom!

Happy Monday!

At Cota & Cota we continually strive to provide the best possible service to our customers. Today, we received an email that made our Monday!

“As a new customer of Cota & Cota I felt it was important for me to drop you a note to make you aware, personally, of the outstanding customer service I’ve been provided by your Team.  EVERYONE that I have had contact with at Cota & Cota has been EXTREMELY knowledgeable, helpful, professional and courteous.  You folks truly are an incredible group of individuals and employees!

Craig Morse was extremely helpful to me in my new account set up process (for oil, propane and central a/c services) and he sincerely wanted me to be happy and satisfied.  Deb and Jill in the office were right on top of things, calling me to set up service appointments that were both convenient and timely — And, both provided great customer service to me with various follow up calls/questions.  Rick Ramirez was awesome not only assisting Mark Ethier with the new propane tank set up, but also servicing my furnace AND working with Tom Cobb servicing my central air conditioning unit — Seriously, is there nothing this guy isn’t good at?!  I swear, as a manager, I strive to have employees like Rick; Professional, knowledgeable and a true multi-tasker!  Both Mark & Tom were also total professionals and did the assigned jobs to my complete satisfaction.  All of your Team was most respectful of my time, my home and my space — You guys are truly top notch!

Having been with my prior service providers for several years, the thought of jumping ship to another company was a bit overwhelming — In hindsight, however, you guys couldn’t have made the transition any easier.  My only wish now is that I had signed up with Cota & Cota when I bought my home four years ago!  SO glad, however, to be with Cota & Cota now!

In the capable hands of the Cota & Cota Team, moving forward, with the changes of the seasons, I know I’ll be kept warm or cool by your services you’ll be providing to me long into the future!”

Walk Out of Darkness

Nick Leone, Service Technician, Veteran, and all around good guy, recently participated in an overnight walk in Washington, D.C. called Walk Out of Darkness. Nick and his team walked from 8pm-4am to raise awareness for veteran losses to suicide. Over 1700 walkers raised over $2.5 million for the cause. Thank you, Nick!

In Nick’s own words:

“The walk was part of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention‘s efforts to promote awareness on the subject of preventing suicide, educating the general public, and supporting the survivors. The photo is of our team from Ruck Up, a veteran’s outpost in Keene that provides counseling, case work and support for homeless veterans in New England. From left to right is A.J. Paige (the leader of Ruck Up), John Pajak, Sue Barton, Donald Spencer, and Eddie Brown(carrying the Vermont battle flag). And I am down front.  🙂 We were partnered with Miles for the Military, and were there to increase awareness of the Military and veteran losses to suicide. It has claimed up to 22 per day, but in reality may be much more.”
