Savannah Children’s Hospital Gifted Easter Baskets from Northwest Exterminating

Savannah Children’s Hospital Gifted Easter Baskets from Northwest Exterminating

The Northwest Savannah service center has a long-standing partnership with the Willett Children’s Hospital of Savannah. The partnership has grown over the years, allowing the team to celebrate multiple holidays with the staff and families.

The Savannah team sent out the call to Northwest’s 35+ service centers to create and donate Easter baskets for the children at the hospital. The original request was for 60 Easter baskets to be donated to each child to spread some Spring cheer. The request was overwhelmingly met, and the team was able to drop off 92 baskets filled with window clings, crayons and colored pencils, coloring books, small dolls and action figures, and other springtime treats. The team did not donate candy at the hospitals request.

The Northwest team did not want to forget to honor the nursing staff of the Hospital who goes above and beyond every day. Candy and additional treats were donated to the staff as a continued thank you!

It is truly a blessing to be able to partner with the Savannah Children’s Hospital multiple times each year and bring even a small bit of joy into the lives of these children and families. The Savannah team is so thankful to be able to have the opportunity to serve their local community this way, and they are looking forward to the other events and holidays in 2021.

LaGrange Office Supports Teammate & Family

LaGrange Office Supports Teammate & Family

Something that all of Northwest believes is that honoring our customers begins with honoring our teammates. Valued people desire to value others, so teams are always stepping in to support their teammates through hard times. This is exactly what our LaGrange team did as a local teammate got ready for surgery in early April.

The LaGrange team got together to purchase and donate items to the family while the teammate underwent and recovered from surgery. They made food and purchased personal items and a pizza gift card for the family to use! The team’s goal was to ensure the teammate was comfortable throughout their recovery and the family could have a few easy dinners for one less thing to worry about.

When we think of supporting our community, we often immediately think of the amazing non-profits, community organizers, and businesses making a difference. While Northwest appreciates and supports many of these, it’s always incredible to recognize that pouring into others begins with pouring into our team. We are thankful for the family-like culture that the LaGrange team has fostered!

Northwest Looks for Ways to Support the Northeast Georgia Homeless Veteran’s Shelter

Northwest Looks for Ways to Support the Northeast Georgia Homeless Veteran’s Shelter

A unique thing about all 30+ Northwest service centers actively working to be involved in their communities is that each month, new stories seem to arise on ways teammates have tried to support or help close to home. The Monroe, Peachtree Corners, and Corporate teams came together to support a local homeless veteran’s shelter near the Monroe service center.

The teams worked together to collect and donate items like food, snacks, toiletries, paper goods, and canned items for the men and women who utilize the shelter. After only a few weeks, the team was able to donate a truckload of items to the shelter.

The Monroe team made the donation in the second week of February. We’re thankful for teammates like these who look for every opportunity to make a difference in their local areas. The teams look forward to other opportunities to help in 2021.

LaGrange Service Center Comes Together for Needed Item Donation

The LaGrange team is always up to something within their community. Whether it’s a Boston Butt Drive or building bunk beds, the team enjoys being a part of the community they have the opportunity to work and live within.

The LaGrange office services a local Women’s Shelter. While providing service, they struck up a conversation with the shelter’s director who mentioned they were having a hard time keeping toilet paper in stock and were in need of it for the shelter. The LaGrange office immediately took action and ordered a few boxes of toilet paper as a donation.

Though a small act of kindness, it’s the opportunities like this that make every teammate at Northwest proud to work for the Mouse. Teammates who want to support not only their customers but also their communities and are actively looking for opportunities to do so. Thank you, LaGrange team, for keeping your eyes open to ways to help!

Northwest Comes Together to Support Ephesus Food Pantry

Northwest Comes Together to Support Ephesus Food Pantry

Opportunities present themselves in interesting ways. Northwest has service centers in the Birmingham, AL and Carrollton, GA areas. One morning, a teammate driving between the two heard an announcement about the need for donations at a local Food Pantry on the radio. The result was the Northwest team coming together to meet this call.

The teammate who overheard the announcement reached out to the local service centers and Corporate office to see what could be possible. The radio asked for donations of basic hygiene needs, especially children’s soap and shampoo. Teammates collected and donated over 251 items within 2 days of the request.

Northwest was able to collect children’s shampoo and soap, baby wash and wipes, Q-tips, men’s and women’s deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, face wash, soap, and razors. All 250+ items were dropped off at the donation society to be used at the Food Pantry. While dropping off, our teammate was able to collect a list of additional needs and items, which the team plans to work on collecting and donating in the future.

It’s incredible to see teammates from all over the Southeast come together in support for our small, local communities we’re fortunate to serve. The Birmingham and Carrollton service centers look forward to supporting more initiatives in the area.

Northwest Supports Local Dobbins Air Force Base with Supply Donation

Northwest Supports Local Dobbins Air Force Base with Supply Donation

Over the last few months, the Northwest Good Deed team and teammates have been collecting donations for soldiers who are quarantining while coming back into or going out of the United States. When the team found out the quarantine period was 16-20 days, they knew the Northwest team needed to come together to support these men and women who do so much for us daily.

The team began donating care bags for each soldier that comes through Dobbins Air Force Base for quarantine. On January 24th, nearly 150 soldiers were quarantined at the Base. Each received a supply bag and had access to donated gaming systems, puzzles, magazines, and DVD players.

Recently, the team heard from TSgt USAF AFRC 16 IS/Delta Flt Disney, who thanked them for thinking of the soldiers quarantined there. It was such a great moment to receive a card from someone receiving the bags.

The team plans to continue to send supply bags to each group of soldiers at least until June 2021! We are so thankful to Sydney Curtis for being the liaison to the Northwest team and relaying this incredible idea for us to support. The team has really enjoyed collecting and putting these together, and it is a small way we can stay thank you to the servicewomen and men.

Dalton Police Department Hosted by Northwest Exterminating to Say Thank You

Dalton Police Department Hosted by Northwest Exterminating to Say Thank You

Each year, Northwest Exterminating teams plan First Responder Events in an effort to show our appreciation for all they do for us and our communities every day. With COVID-19 restrictions, we have been unable to celebrate and thank these men and women as we usually would, so the team got creative with a way to safely say thank you!

On January 26, Northwest hosted meals for any member of the Dalton Police Department at Dos Bros in Dalton, GA. The team invited the police department to stop by for an appreciation meal on Northwest by them simply showing their ID when entering the restaurant. We were thankful that Dos Bros welcomed the idea!

The work that the people do in the Dalton Police Department allows our families to thrive and live safely. We were grateful for the opportunity to show our appreciation and serve the department a meal. Thank you, Dalton PD, for all the work you tirelessly do in Dalton.

Savannah Office Supports Willet Children’s Hospital in Savannah, GA

Savannah Office Supports Willet Children’s Hospital in Savannah, GA

The Savannah team is at it again! Over the last few years, the Northwest team out of the Savannah, GA office has created an amazing relationship with the staff at the Willet Children’s Hospital. The team has focused the partnership to celebrate most holidays with the families and children staying within the hospital at this time.

Each year around the December holidays, the Savannah team reaches out to all of Northwest to collect decorations for the children’s rooms. From mini Christmas trees and lights to window clings and garland, Northwest comes together to purchase and donate these items to bring a bit of holiday cheer to the hospital. This year, the team donated 20 bags of decorations so that each family could decorate their rooms together. 20 window clings were also donated for the ICU rooms.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the team was unable to drop these off and assist with the decorations this year as they have in the past, but they were thrilled to still be able to continue the tradition is some way. In addition to the decorations, they also donated bins of candy for the nursing staff as a small way to say thank you to these frontline workers for all they do.

Being able to volunteer with and donate to the Willet Children’s Hospital has been such a gift to the Savannah team who truly enjoys anytime they’re able to come together to support the families and staff. We are thankful for all the Hospital does, and we look forward to continuing the partnership into 2021.
