Ferguson, Newport News, VA, a leading HVAC and plumbing wholesale distributor, has made a contribution to support the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors (PHCC) Educational Foundation's 2010 "Invest In Your Future" annual viving campaign.

"Training and education are the tools that can help contractors thrive, no matter what condition the economy is in. Ferguson recognizes this and is doing their part to provide educational opportunities for contractors with their gift," says Foundation Chairperson Bill Jones. "We truly appreciate their continued support."

Ferguson has been a major supporter of the PHCC Educational Foundation for 20 years, and is a corporate founder-level donor to the Foundation's endowment fund.

Combined past and present contributions from Ferguson now total more than $185,000 in support of industry education.

Industry contractors, suppliers and manufacturers can show their support and be represented on the donor thank you list by making a contribution to the annual giving campaign.
