Phoenix, Arizona (PressExposure) April 24, 2011 -- It was nothing short of a miracle in local Phoenix resident, Rose Bueno's eyes this past Wednesday as she experienced an extraordinary and unique gift of essential home repairs. Rose and her family were living under a leaky roof in need of major work. Through Chicanos Por La Causa, an agency that promotes the well being of Arizona's socially and economically deprived communities, Rose reached out for help. Tony Ardizzone, CEO and Founder of ZZone Construction, heard of Rose's tragic story. The story of a woman facing family hardship, financial struggle and personal loss. Tony called his team to action and enlisted a crew of over 40 sub-contractors who donated their time and materials on Wednesday, April 20th to fix Rose's roof and show the local community the power of one company's selfless deeds.
Rose is not unlike many Americans who are challenged in today's financial times. Not only did she have major roofing issues, but her family resided in a house without air conditioning, in a Phoenix climate where average temperatures in April reach 85 degrees, and upwards of 100 by June. Rose was not aware that in addition to the roof repair, ZZone Construction would install a brand new air conditioning unit for the house. On top of that, Tony's team also surprised Rose by repainting the entire exterior of the house. The company also assembled a team to provide full lawn and landscaping clean up for the family's yard. Prior to Wednesday, Rose thought her house was going to be condemned, but these improvements provided a truly amazing makeover for the family, coming just in time to celebrate a momentous Easter dinner and to also prepare for the imminent extreme summer weather in Phoenix.
In times of disparaging world news, random acts of kindness prove there are companies built on strong foundations guided by human principles. This comes as no surprise for Tony Ardizzone, whose company, ZZone Construction, has been in business for over 19 years, based on the same core values established by his father, Carlo, in their family construction business. Now, as a devoted husband and father of four, Tony's pride and joy resides in watching his children develop every day. Family has been and will always be a core value for Tony. His beliefs provide the solid foundation for his professional ventures as well, and the opportunity for him to give back to this local community exemplified his company motto, "Where Vision is Built". ZZone embodies their mission, not only giving peace of mind and hope to Rose and her family, but also restoring and building pride in the local neighborhood, starting one family at a time.
As a general business practice, Tony states, "We look at projects not for what they are but for what they can be." This project was definitely a life changing event for this family and an inspirational story to countless others.
