OnTime Service provides electrical, HVAC, and plumbing services around Birmingham, Alabama, but that’s not all.
Community service and charitable giving are a big part of the business — not just on Giving Tuesday.
Carol Adkins and Kerry Adkins, the husband-and-wife team who own OnTime Service, made an agreement long ago to make charity and service a central part of their business model.
A percentage of every service call goes into the charity fund. Charities and nonprofits can request help through an online form or visit OnTime’s headquarters in Hoover to present their needs.
Help can come in the form of cash or hands-on service. Last summer, the OnTime Service team made their 7th construction mission trip to Quetzaltenango, Guatemala to help Good Shepherd Ministries construct an orphanage.

Our latest charitable donation went to The Renaissance Academy Prep School for Boys, which provides college preparatory education in a safe and structured Christian-based environment.
“Carol and I met them a few weeks ago, toured the school and really wanted to help their ministry,” Kerry Adkins said. “Let’s help spread the word on their mission, incredible work, and need.”
The Renaissance Academy Prep School for Boys started as a mentoring program for inner city athletes who wanted to attend college but lacked proper preparatory guidance. Since then, the mentoring program has blossomed into an actual school for young men.
TRA Prep’s motto is “Providing excellence in academics today, for the unlimited opportunities of tomorrow.”
TRA Prep has a 100% graduation rate. Additionally, their juniors and seniors are eligible to receive apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship/craft training through Construction Education Foundation of Alabama (CEFA) and the Young Apprentice program.
We are encouraged and motivated by the incredible work being done at The Renaissance Academy and hope to one day hire some TRA Prep graduates right here at OnTime Service. It’s a great place to work for employees who want to be a part of something much bigger than themselves.
Please help us share the incredible work TRA Prep does for young men in grades 5-12 and their families and communities.
The Renaissance Academy Prep School for Boys is a non-profit 501c3 organization. They do not receive any government funding to support the educating of these young achievers.
