Giving Back

The Holidays are an exciting and fun time of year and they are almost here. At Watson Brothers we are thankful for our families, our friends, our customers, and our customers who have become family and friends. In this time of celebration, we are excited to be able to give back to the community that has supported us.

All month long, a portion of our proceeds will go to benefit two local charities that are very important to us. The first organization is The Exceptional Foundation of East Alabama. It serves adults with special needs that have aged out of public education programs. The Exceptional Foundation provides activities and support and helps garner a general sense of purpose their participants. It is our great honor to help provide a place for our Exceptional friends.

The second organization we proudly support is the Big House Foundation. The Big House Foundation provides resources for foster and adoptive families. Their goal is to give every child in foster a care a "typical" childhood and help families navigate the foster and adoption systems. Mac is the father of two boys that he and his wife Kate fostered and then adopted. The Big House was and remains an important part of their lives. Ornaments may be picked up at Watson Brothers Patio and Hearth for you to pledge a donation to the Big House "Santa's Workshop" Toy Donation Drive. You may also drop off toys at the store for Big House from now until December 4.

So shop us all through the month of November to help these great organizations. There's no better time to upgrade your outdoor space with a new grill or furniture or find the perfect gift for the grillmaster with the latest accessories from Napoleon, Smokeware, and, of course, Big Green Egg. Be sure to check us out on Black Friday -- November 27 -- for specials throughout the store including on Green Mountain pellet grills and Big Green Egg packages.

Finally, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our new venture, Watson Brothers Chimney and Vent. Watson Brothers Chimney and Vent offers full service chimney and drier vent service including cleaning, chimney and fireplace inspection and repair, and gas log service and installation. We want to help make sure your home is safe and cozy for the winter months. You can find us online at www.watsonbrotherschimney.com or call us at (334) 521-7211.

It's the most wonderful time of the year. Happy Holidays from the Watson Brothers!
