Fred Schilling donates his time and considerable expertise to help Haitian people obtain safe, clean drinking water.
In nearly four decades as a plumber, there isn’t much that Fred Schilling hasn’t seen. Since beginning his career with the U.S. military and becoming one of south Florida’s youngest-ever Certified Master Plumbers in 1976 with a perfect 100 percent on the exam, Schilling estimates that he has been involved in about 800 construction projects over 36 years, including virtually every type of large-scale project imaginable. This includes, schools, hospitals, hotels, shopping centers and even Six Flags Atlantis, which when build in the early 1980s was the world’s largest water theme park.
His latest endeavor, however, could be his most daunting – and rewarding – yet: helping bring clean, safe drinking water to the people of Haiti.
