Climatic’s Community Involvement Sarasota FL

Climatic has been a member of the Sarasota community for over 40 years. We are proud of to be a part of this community and believe it’s important to make a a difference by giving back to our community. We have chosen to give back by supporting three very important causes, of which two involve people who live in our community, Eric Buchanan and The Wright Family. We hope you will join us in supporting all of them.


Eric Buchanan

At the age of 9, Eric Buchanan was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. He was fortunate that he was able to enjoy a normal, healthy life while attending Cardinal Mooney High School in Sarasota, FL and University of North Carolina Charlotte. He played football and enjoyed the simple things in life. When he was hospitalized the first time, he had to leave Charlotte and move back to Florida where he finished college at the University of Florida.

Eric has been a survivor through the ensuing years. After college, he had made a decision to work with a great company, Publix. He was busy getting acquainted with the company and building a future for himself. When his lung collapsed, Eric had to leave his passion which was his work, and start depending on oxygen.

He is now in need of a double lung transplant. With this surgery he will be able to get back on his feet and once again become a normal, young adult pursuing his interests.

Payton Wright Foundation

When Payton Wright had her first surgery, the one thing she said to her dad was, “Don’t Worry Dad, it’s gonna to be a good day.” She was four years old and going into surgery for brain cancer. One year later, Payton passed away.

In memory of Payton, The Payton Wright Foundation was founded to bring awareness to pediatric brain cancer. Her parents, Patrick and Holly Wright, started this foundation to remember their daughter, Payton, and to help support families who are caring for a child with brain cancer.

The foundation provides resources in raising awareness, support, a network of expert hospitals, and funding for research to help work towards a cure in pediatric brain cancer.

A Life’s Story Foundation

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis, and ultimately, respiratory failure.

ALS attacks certain cells in the brain and the spinal cord needed to keep our muscles moving. Early signs and symptoms of ALS include:

  • muscle cramps and muscle twitching
  • weakness in hands, legs, feet or ankles
  • difficulty speaking or swallowing

The senses, including hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch, are not affected by ALS. In most cases, people with ALS do not experience difficulties in bowel, bladder or sexual function.

Kevin Swan, founder of A Life Story Foundation was diagnosed with ALS in February of 2012. A 501(c)(3) organization, ALSF’s mission is to tell the stories of PALS (People with ALS) in order to raise awareness, funds, and create action to help eradicate the disease.

Climatic Conditioning has made it their mission to help raise awareness for the A Life Story Foundation. They have worked hand in hand with the non-profit organization.
