November is the perfect month to give thanks. Because of the pandemic, so many people are in need right now. Our essential workers and public servants risk it all to fight for us every day, and our neighbors are short on food and supplies. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, our Rochester branch showed gratitude for the incredible people who make up our tight-knit community.
Food Drive and Gift Baskets
Throughout November, the branch collaborated with Fox customers to collect food for the Irondequoit Community Cupboard. The nonprofit was in need of canned goods, especially at the start of this holiday season. We’re grateful to have such charitable customers who are willing to join in on causes like this one and hope the donations will be a help to those in need.
The Rochester branch was also able to donate gift baskets to local firefighters. These heroes risk their lives every day for all of us. The team was honored to do something, however small, to show Fox’s appreciation.
Lending a Helping Hand
This month, one of our team members was made aware of a prospective customer who came home from a hospital stay to find a rat infestation. Our Pest Pro could only imagine the amount of stress and pressure this put on the gentleman. Our team came together to promptly patch up all potential rodent entry points and take care of the rats free of charge. In the end, the branch decided to give the man over a years’ worth of free pest control services.
“Giving back to the community is truly a part of who we are as a company, which is why we’ve chosen several different ways to donate, both monetary and service driven to support individuals and organizations throughout our community. We hope many other companies will join us to close 2020 on a positive note,” said Chris Call, Regional Manager of Fox Pest Control.
It truly has been a magical month for our Rochester Branch. We appreciate the incredible people in our community who make this holiday season special!
