Giving Back to the Greater Louisville Area
While our business is providing trustworthy and dependable heating and cooling installation, maintenance, and service, as well as plumbing, drain, and sewer service and installation, our privilege is to give back to the Great Louisville Area. We are focused on recognizing those we call ExtraordinAIRy Treasures – high school seniors who are treasures to our future and people within the community who are treasures to those around them.
ExtraordinAIRy Treasures Scholarships
Since 2016, Jarboe’s Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling has presented a $1,000 ExtraordinAIRy Treasures Scholarship to 27 graduating high school seniors in Kentuckiana. Jarboe’s recognizes the need for ALL career paths in life. There are many graduating high school seniors who plan to attend college to receive a Bachelor’s Degree or higher. They have aspirations of being doctors, lawyers, and engineers. There are other graduates who are good with their hands and are headed for a trade school to study a skilled trade such as welding or plumbing. All of these careers are necessary for the world to function as needed. Can you imagine not having someone qualified to repair your furnace when it breaks on the coldest night of the year?
ExtraordinAIRy Treasures scholarships are unique in that there are no GPA requirements, and the student cannot apply. Someone who thinks that the student is an ExtraordinAIRy Treasure to our future must nominate him or her at MyLouisvilleTreasure.org.

Christmas On Us
Jarboe’s Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling recognizes that there are many individuals and groups that make a huge impact every day in the community. We created Christmas On Us in 2017 to shine a light on these treasures. So far, we have awarded $1,000 to 27 treasures in our community. Just like with the scholarships, the recipients were nominated by someone who saw them as a treasure in the Greater Louisville Area. Those who are selected represent a variety of ages and gifts such as Charlene Shipley who founded Roo’s Wish with the goal of making every foster child feel special; Jeff Gill who founded Hip Hop Cares to help the homeless; and 7 year-old Maci Curtsinger who saw two children in the cold without coats from her car window at a red light, and she immediately grabbed both her coats and handed them out her window.
