Celebrating Teammate Acts of Kindness Day: Our Second Annual Celebration Across the Southeast

At Northwest, we believe in the power of kindness and its impact on our communities. This year, we proudly celebrated our second annual Teammate Acts of Kindness Day, where our teams across the Southeast came together to spread goodwill and make a difference in the lives of others. Our initiatives were diverse, thoughtful, and heartwarming and resulted in completing over 1,700+ Acts of Kindness in one day!

In our Smyrna office, teammates brought in beautiful flowers, delicious cookies, and thoughtful goodie bags to share with one another. The atmosphere was filled with joy and appreciation as we celebrated the small gestures that can brighten someone’s day. Our Homewood team also participated enthusiastically, bringing each other goodie bags filled with snacks and treats.

Beyond the office, our teams went above and beyond for our customers. Teammates engaged in acts such as bringing trash cans up for customers, fixing mailboxes, and watering plants. The East Cobb team bought pizzas for the surrounding Service Centers, spreading cheer and goodwill among our extended team. In Opelika, a teammate helped push someone’s car to the nearest gas station, while in Monroe, someone assisted in jumping a customer’s car. These thoughtful gestures demonstrated our commitment to extending kindness beyond our immediate team, touching the lives of our customers and showing them that we truly care about their well-being.

Teammate Acts of Kindness Day is more than just a day of good deeds; it’s a testament to our commitment to creating a positive and supportive environment both within our team and in the communities we serve.

Empowering Families in Crisis: Northwest’s Involvement in the HomeAid Essentials Drive

Empowering Families in Crisis: Northwest’s Involvement in the HomeAid Essentials Drive

In a gesture of compassion and solidarity, our team recently participated in the 23rd Annual HomeAid Essentials Drive, a pivotal event aimed at supporting families grappling with homelessness in metro Atlanta. Understanding the critical needs of these vulnerable families, particularly women and children, we rallied together to collect and donate essential baby supplies such as diapers, wipes, and other necessities.

The significance of these donations cannot be overstated, especially considering that an estimated 4,770 individuals experience homelessness in metro Atlanta on any given night, with nearly 35% being women and children. For families facing economic hardship, the cost of diapers alone can pose a substantial burden, with babies requiring up to 12 diapers a day. By participating in the Essentials Drive, we sought to alleviate some of the stress and challenges faced by these families during times of crisis and transition.

Through the collective efforts of the metro Atlanta home building industry and generous community members, the Essentials Drive has amassed over 2.1 million baby items since its inception in 2002, providing invaluable support to countless families in need. We are honored to have been a part of this impactful initiative, contributing to the well-being and dignity of families in our community and reaffirming our commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of those facing adversity.

Northwest Exterminating Macon Office Participates in Local Habitat for Humanity Annual Women’s Build

The Macon office recently participated in the Macon Area Women’s Build, which was graciously organized by our Macon Office Manager. This initiative brought together 12 dedicated volunteers from Region 4, including the Good Deed Team Ambassadors, to spend a day making a difference at a local house in Macon. From cutting and nailing trim to hanging doors and painting, our team poured their hearts and skills into improving the lives of others. It was truly a fulfilling experience, working side by side for such a noble cause.

Macon Habitat for Humanity has been making a profound impact since its inception in 1986, completing its first house by 1987. Over the years, through unwavering collaboration with the Macon community, they have served over 120 families, providing them with safe and decent housing. Their dedication to building not just houses, but homes, resonates deeply with our team’s values of community and compassion.

This year’s Women’s Build marked the event’s 20th anniversary, drawing together 11 groups and nearly 200 volunteers throughout the month-long event in March. Corporate teams of women and men from various industries joined forces with their local Habitat affiliates, including Macon Habitat for Humanity, to sponsor, build, and dedicate homes. It’s inspiring to see the collective effort and commitment to empowering families and strengthening communities through homeownership. We are proud to have been a part of this incredible milestone and look forward to continuing our support for such impactful initiatives.

As we mark our fifth consecutive year of spearheading the Easter Basket Donation Drive for the Willett Children’s Hospital in Savannah, Georgia, we couldn’t be prouder of our team’s collective effort. Since the beginning, our yearly goal of collecting 75 Easter Baskets has consistently been surpassed, and this year was no exception. With overwhelming support, we completed a remarkable tally of 90 Easter baskets, along with 6 Nurse baskets, and over 500 Easter eggs, bringing joy to the hospital’s staff, patients, and families.

Since our inaugural drive in 2020, our commitment to making holidays special for those at the Willett Children’s Hospital has only grown stronger. Building on the success of previous years, our collaboration with the Family Life Coordinator, and the enthusiastic participation of Northwest branches across the southeast, have become integral to the annual Easter basket event. This milestone year is a testament to the enduring dedication of our team and the profound impact of community support.

The Memorial Health Dwaine & Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital of Savannah stands as a beacon of hope for families across Southeast Georgia and South Carolina. Inaugurating their new facility in 2021 was a significant milestone, reflecting their unwavering commitment to providing specialized care tailored to children’s needs.
