Christmas is a time for giving, and giving back to our community is a core belief at Branham Electric. We are very proud of the work we do, and the relationships we have developed, throughout our 26 years in business. As a thank you for trusting in Branham Electric, we believe in giving back to our community.
Veterans organizations have always been the main receiver of our charitable efforts. In 2013, Tim was the St. Louis regional chair of ABC’s Heart of America Chapter. As regional chapter chair, Tim was charged with developing a charitable event for one of the area’s veterans’ organizations. Tim decided to do a Trivia night and chose The St. Louis Fisher House, as the beneficiary, after learning 96% of all contributions stay here in St. Louis and help veterans in many ways.
The Fisher House is located on the property of the St. Louis VA Medical Center. Open in July, 2010, the Fisher House has been privileged to serve over five hundred families of Veterans and active duty military personnel. It’s a non-profit organization established to provide “a home away from home” to the families and caregivers of our military men and women during their time of need.
Branham also contributes to The Salvation Army. For the second year, Tim Branham and family have walked in St. Louis’ Thanksgiving Day Parade, with The Northwest Chamber of Commerce, as Salvation Army bell ringers. Our employees started an annual Salvation Army fund raiser during the Christmas season several years ago. In 2017, our goal is for every employee to help The Salvation Army of St. Louis change lifes for the better.
This year, Branham employees decided to add Toys for Tots to our charitable efforts. Each employee is bringing toys to the company’s Christmas Party. The toys will be delivered to the local Marine Toys for Tots collection center.
The Christmas Season is a time for giving. and a time to thank our customers for giving us the opportunity to service your electrical contracting needs. Branham Electric takes pride in developing long lasting relationships with many of you. We thank you for giving us the ability to give back The St. Louis Fisher House, The Salvation Army, and Toys for Tots.
