Northwest Exterminating Teammates and the Good Deed Team Participate in “From Hunger To Hope” Initiative with Feed My Starving Children

On March 14th and 15th, Northwest teammates joined the Northwest Good Deed Team to again lend a helping hand to the Feed My Starving Children “From Hunger to Hope” initiative.

Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children leads a global call-to-action to end hunger. By working with volunteers and distribution partners, their mission is “to reach everyone until ALL are fed.” In 2018, Feed My Starving Children was able to provide more than 966,000 children with one meal a day for an entire year.

“Coming back to work with this amazing organization for another year has been a very humbling and rewarding experience,” said Kristen Milligan, Co-Director of the Good Deed Team. The Northwest Good Deed Team searches within the communities in which we serve for opportunities to give back. We are extremely fortunate to have found great organizations like Feed My Starving Children to partner with to help make a difference.

Over the two days, 70 Northwest teammates helped prepare 141 boxes, totaling 30,456 meals! For information on the Good Deed Team, visit: https://www.callnorthwest.com/thegooddeedsteam/ or email gooddeeds@callnorthwest.com.

About the Northwest Good Deed Team – As much as Northwest Exterminating is in the pest control business, we’re even more so in the people business. It’s that train of thinking that pushes us to think outside the box on how we can better serve the communities we live and work in; the creation of our Good Deed Team came from just that. The Good Deed team is an active part of the Northwest Family that seeks out and partners with local schools, businesses, and organizations to create an impact throughout our communities. We love that we get the chance to help not only our customers protect their homes from pest, termites, mosquitoes, insulation, lawn, and wildlife issues but also help our communities become even better places to call home.

The Northwest Good Deeds Team Partners With Toys For Tots

The Northwest Good Deeds Team Partners With Toys For Tots

On December 14th & 15th, the Northwest Good Deeds Team and many Northwest Teammates ventured to the Atlanta Toys for Tots warehouse for two days of volunteering and fellowship.
Partnering with Toys for Tots for several years, Northwest views this event as a great way to foster the relationships we have developed in the community. “This comes back full circle as evident in the smiles of the parents and each child who receives toys through this program,” says Kristen Milligan, Co-Director of the Good Deeds Team.
The Toys for Tots goal is “to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.” This easily aligns with the Northwest Good Deeds goal of providing simple, meaningful opportunities for Northwest teammates to create a positive impact in the community in which we serve. Over the two days, everyone enjoyed the company of one another and the chance to give back this holiday season. Northwest’s Co-Presidents Stephen and Stanford Phillips joined the team to help fulfill orders, “It’s amazing to see everyone helping, and they are genuinely happy to be doing so.”

Aimee's Wing FINISHED!

We are so proud to have been a part of the project to build a wing for Aimee Copeland!  Thank you to Pulte Homes and the other 50 trade partners that donated their time and materials to renovate the Copeland home.  The 1,956 sq ft addition includes a rehab and fitness room, a bedroom with a sitting area, a fully accessible bathroom, and a study where Aimee can finish her psychology thesis.

Aimee and her family have been such a huge inspiration to us at Northwest Exterminating, the state of Georgia, and all over the country!  We can’t wait to see what’s next for this young woman!

Keep the Bugs Away this 4th of July

Happy 4th of July!!  We’d like to take a second to say how proud we are to be Americans!!  We’re proud to live in the country of the land of the free and the home of the brave!!  And like always, we’d like to thank all of the brave men and women and their families that have given so much for this great country!!

But before you go enjoy those fireworks…here are some tips to stay bug free this 4th of July:

  • Avoid standing water in areas like flower pots, bird baths, buckets, barrels, etc.  Areas like these are breeding spots for mosquitoes that can carry diseases like West Nile and encephalitis.
  • Wear an insect repellant, such as DEET, to protect against mosquitoes and other bugs.
  • Keep food covered when possible to avoid attracting mosquitoes, flies, and ants.
  • Tightly seal garbage and put it in a sealed garbage container on the outside of your home.  Make sure that the lid to the trash can is on securely to avoid rodents from getting in and going through the trash.
  • Keep your lawn mowed and clear of debris.
  • Protect your pets from fleas and ticks by using a preventative.  These can be purchased over the counter or by your veterinarian.
  • Have your exterminator treat your yard and home for insects and other rodents that could BUG you this summer!  (Get it, BUG you!)

What other tips do have for staying bug free this 4th of July?
