It is with great excitement that we look forward to hosting The Anderson Companies Annual Charity Golf Tournament! We are pleased to announce that we will be donating this year’s funds to The Giving Tree, a nonprofit program started by Fredericksburg City School’s very own, Tammy Clark. Thanks to this special program, local students can obtain donated clothing, toiletries and other necessities free of charge.

 

 

We are thankful to be able to support such a special cause and look forward to seeing what great things The Giving Tree continues to do.

Community means everything to The Anderson Companies and our employees, which is why we believe in giving back by supporting local nonprofits and organizations dedicated to improving the lives of people in our area. We host this annual golf tournament to raise funds each year for a different charity and feel that the Giving Tree program provides an irreplaceable service to our community. All funds collected will go directly to helping students receive the support they need.

If you’re thinking about making the switch to Anderson Propane, there are a few things you can expect:

  1. Experience
  2. Communication
  3. Integrity
  4. Convenience

This has given us the experience to provide you with the high-quality care, products, and customer service you expect. From our in-office staff to the delivery drivers and technicians that work with you at your home, our team is here to help you in any way we can.

“Excellent experience, from setting up the service request, receiving the quote, and completing the service.”

Communication

We are committed to being a customer-first company that sets the highest standards in the industry. To us, this means expert communication is critical from start to finish. Whether you call the office during normal business hours or the 24/7 emergency line, you can always expect a friendly voice when you need us most.

“Everything from start to finish was awesome. Communication was great and the entire crew demonstrated professionalism. We truly appreciate the service that Anderson Propane has provided.”

– Ben F.

 

Integrity

Our work matters to us – all jobs alike. Customers can count on us for professional installation and quality maintenance time and time again. We stand by everything we do and will not hesitate to correct ourselves and the issue if we’ve made a mistake.

“We had a mix-up on the service to be performed. I had requested that my propane-fired fireplace and Rinnai on-demand propane-fired water heater be serviced on the same day, but the technician was only told to do the fireplace and did not have to proper tools to do the water heater. However, Anderson Propane reacted quickly and sent another technician to do the water heater on the same day. So, everything was resolved to my satisfaction and all the scheduled work was completed on time with a minimum of inconvenience. I appreciate getting the VIP treatment after I called in to notify the service department of the problem. I am happy with the results. Thank you, Anderson Propane for getting the service call completed on time!”

– Bruce H.

 

Convenience

It is always our goal to make working with us as seamless as possible. We offer many conveniences such as a customer portal to manage your account, tank monitoring so you can view your tank level right on your phone, automatic delivery so you never run out of propane, payment plans to suit your budget, and text alerts to notify you when our technicians are on the way!

“I enjoyed your employee’s professionalism and responsiveness. The text messaging system was great especially letting us know that an employee was on their way and their name. I appreciated it and wish larger companies could reach your level of professionalism. Thank you.”

– Juan U.

The Anderson Companies 2020 Annual Donation: Zoe Freedom Center

2020 has been a turbulent year for many people in many different ways. As our world learns to navigate through these unprecedented times, The Anderson Companies knew it was important, now more than ever, to give back to our community.

For over 5 years, we have hosted an annual golf tournament with all proceeds donated to various charities. This year with safety in mind, we made the difficult yet important decision to cancel our event. Although we couldn’t raise money through a fun day of golf, our team didn’t let disappointment cloud the most important part of it all: supporting our community.

When it came time to choose an organization to support, the answer seemed clear. According to the Overdose Detection Mapping Application Program, suspected overdoses nationally jumped 18% in March, 29% in April, and 42% in May. These statistics and the Anderson family’s personal experience with addiction and overdose lead them right to Zoe Freedom Center.

Zoe Freedom Center is a non-profit organization in Fredericksburg, VA that strives to educate and help those suffering with addiction find freedom. Husband and wife duo, Mark and Dana Brown, founded Zoe Freedom Center after Dana’s remarkable journey placed this mission on their hearts. In the past year, their organization has helped countless in our community and been a positive force in spreading awareness about addiction.

The Anderson Companies are beyond proud to support Zoe Freedom Center through our annual donation. We look forward to seeing the incredible work they continue to do for our community in the coming years. Your impact is great and our team is thrilled to support the journey to finding freedom from addiction for all. Thank you, Zoe Freedom Center!

The rain poured, but that did not deter the participants in this year’s 5th Annual Anderson Golf Classic at the Fredericksburg Country Club on June 22nd, 2018.

 

Anderson Golf Classic

All teams arrived in the morning for registration, sponsored gift bags and breakfast. The teams teed off and the competition began with only a short delay. The tournament finished up around 1 pm, followed by a delicious lunch which the golfers enjoyed during the awards and raffle ceremony.

Awards were given to the longest drive and closest to the pin for a few holes which were sponsored by some of our guests. There were a few fun competitions at this year’s classic, because who doesn’t like a little friendly competition? The winners lucked out with this year’s prizes! Prizes included golfing equipment, Yeti coolers and a Big Green Egg with EGGcessories!

All of the proceeds for this year’s Classic are being donated to Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office program, Fight Against Heroin and Opioid Addiction. Captain Chuck Carey and 1st Sgt. Murdock Woodard of Spotsylvania County spoke about their program during the event and took questions from the audience. At the end of the ceremony, awards for the top three teams were presented followed by a gracious speech made by Mark Anderson.


The Anderson family, which has been affected personally by this epidemic, like so many other local families, hope to bring awareness to all about the dangers of opioid addiction through the Fight Against Heroin and Opioid Addiction program. Politicians, law enforcement officers and public health officials have tried to stem the growing tide of opioid overdoses. The Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s Office plans to use these funds to facilitate awareness, education, and provide support for our area.
As with much of our nation, more and more Virginians have become addicted to these drugs and many have died. According to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, opioids have claimed the lives of more than 2,500 people in Virginia. The number of opioid overdoses in Virginia has risen steadily over those years with 764 people having died in the last year, 325 people having died from heroin overdoses alone.
The Anderson Companies and family are incredibly appreciative for all of the generous donations. Not only did our participants donate when joining the event, but they participated in our raffles, donated gift items for all participants, purchased event polo shirts, donated gifts for the award ceremony, and some even returned their prizes for proceeds to be awarded back for such a worthy cause.


Thank you again to all who participated to make this year’s Classic one to remember!

I was impressed from the 1st time I spoke to someone. The lady on the phone was relaxed, helpful and patient, explaining the process and how things would go. The best part was the gentlemen who came out to look at our tank, equipment, lines and repairing as needed.

I had a great experience with Anderson! Landscapers accidentally severed the feed line into my house, and they advised me of the immediate actions I needed to take, things to be aware of and had a manager and field tech out for the repair almost immediately. Very impressed with the service!
