Tarheel Basement Systems recently donated to the North Carolina Association of the Deaf, supporting the deaf and hard-of-hearing in the state. The Association helps to provide closed captioned TV programs and installation of telephone relay systems, both of which give the hearing impaired new opportunities for communication.
Pete Burgess, owner of the company, chose to support this organization in hopes of helping this disadvantaged group protect their rights. Burgess frequently supports charitable causes to reach out and give back to the North Carolina community.
Linda Nelson, President of the NC Association for the Deaf, wrote to thank Pete for his support saying, “Your support provides hope– hope for a brighter, more productive future.”
