November 24, 2010 - Thornton & Grooms honored Clarkston SCAMP with the company's Hearts & Heroes Award for October.

"We love to support local charities and to see one such as SCAMP is great," said Mike Bergstrom, vice president of Thornton & Grooms, family-owned plumbing, heating and cooling business based in Farmington Hills. "SCAMP offers the opportunity for special needs kids to enjoy all the great things that summer camps offer and we are so glad to be able to help."

Each month, Thornton & Grooms awards $1,000 to a local charity nominated by its customers. The award helps non-profit groups and organizations facing challenges in the struggling economy.

SCAMP is a five-week program for children and young adults with special needs. It provides social and recreational activities, like swimming, arts and crafts and field trips to the fire station.
