About Share the Warmth
Matthew Clement, owner of Ambassador Fireplaces wants to do something to help Lane County families in need. As a leading dealer and installer of fireplace products, Matt understands that an investment in a heat stove and the installation is not a realistic option for many families, especially for those who need it most.
Matt came up with a solution: to donate one complete pellet system to a family in need each winter. He took his idea to suppliers and other companies to see if they’d like to be involved—and Share the Warmth was the result.
The recipient will receive a Napoleon Timberwolf TPS35 pellet stove (or insert), professionally installed by Ambassador Fireplaces. The complete package includes a DuraVent Chimney kit, a Hearth Classics hearth pad, half a ton of wood pellets, and all necessary permits.
Final day to nominate a family: October 31, 2015
Announcement of this year’s recipient: 2 weeks after the nomination deadline
Last Year’s Recipient
Last year’s stove was donated to the Devouassoux family whose story touched our hearts deeply. Below is a kind letter we received from them:
“When I received the email telling me I had been chosen to receive the pellet stove, I was so overwhelmed with joy.
I was diagnosed with untreatable brain cancer in January 2013. It left me unable to work and with lots of medical bills. When we purchased our home the existing wood stove was removed because it was not up to code. We had been unable to afford to replace it, so we had to rely on electric heat. Last winter in 2013 and 2014 our power bill was over $400 for a couple of months. Since we got our pellet stove and pellets, our power bill has been over $100 less.
It is amazing that Matt, the owner of Ambassador Fireplaces chose to do something so wonderful. I was shocked when I found out that it was not just a pellet stove, but also included the pellets too. It moved me to tears. This has truly been a blessing and answer to our prayers for my family and I. I truly am thankful for their kindness. Thank you.
The Devouassoux Family”
