Northwest Exterminating’s Miami Team Participates in Walk/Run for St. Jude

Northwest Exterminating’s Miami Team Participates in Walk/Run for St. Jude

Recently, our Miami Service Center participated in a walk/run with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to honor Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This marks the third year they have participated in the walk/run, as they believe this is an opportunity to help create a hopeful future to end childhood cancer. Many of our teammates are passionate about not only supporting local organizations but also ones specific to supporting children, so having teammates come together from multiple South Florida service centers for such a great cause was incredible. This was the team’s first year participating in the walk/run as Northwest, and the Northwest team truly appreciated being able to support our SFL team even from states away. The Mouse was even able to make an appearance!
St Jude 1

Our Miami team believes, “When you are there for the community, the community is there for you.” Being able to make memories while supporting St. Jude’s mission and joining many more who share the same vision is a big why behind this yearly commitment. The teammates enjoyed getting to make a difference while spending time together supporting St. Jude.

Teammates and their families from across the South Florida offices participated in the walk/run, with The Northwest Mouse making its appearance for the first time! This was the team’s first year supporting St. Jude as part of the Northwest Family. Co-Directors of the Good Deed Team, as well as other Northwest teammates came to support our South Florida team, and it was a great first event to be able to do together. We are so grateful for a team who makes time to give back to and support our local communities in big and small ways.
St Jude 2

St. Jude has been a leader in the understanding and treatment of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases since 1962. With multiple historical milestones under the hospital’s belt, they have been able to provide world-class service to children who suffer from unspeakable diseases. With the help of our South Florida team, the hospital was able to move a step closer to an overall cure.

Canton Service Center Assists Customer with Lawn Care

Canton Service Center Assists Customer with Lawn Care

After completing a customer’s service, Northwest’s local Canton Service Center team came together to further support the longtime, elderly customer with much needed yardwork. Several of the Canton, GA Service Professionals came to the customer’s home to help and clear up some potential landscaping that could create pest concerns.

Our teammates were able to trim trees back from the customer’s gutters to help prevent pests from making their way inside. While working outside of the home, they discovered a hornet’s nest and were able to safely remove it, free of charge. The smallest things can make a huge difference, and the team enjoyed taking the time to help in this small way.
Good deed team

Discovering these golden opportunities to shine beyond pest control continues to be important to our team. Our customers make up our community! Being able to create extraordinary experiences and make a difference for our community is why we do what we do. We’re thankful for our Canton Service Center teammates who continue to care for their customers, communities, and each other.

Murfreesboro Service Center Collects Donations for Local School’s Field Day

Creating lasting relationships within the local community is something that Northwest was founded on. Though our purpose is pest control, we are first and foremost in the people business. When Rockvale Middle School said they needed assistance with their yearly field day, our Murfreesboro Good Deed Team stepped in.

Good Deed Team 1

The team collected over 20 cases of drinks, including water and a variety of soda. This will provide over 600 drinks to the students at Rockvale, making their field day an exciting day filled with hydration and fun!

We are so grateful for an extraordinary team that truly cares about the community and contributes to making a difference and putting our customers first!

Fort Myers, FL Service Center Volunteers at The Talkin’ Monkeys Project

Fort Myers, FL Service Center Volunteers at The Talkin’ Monkeys Project

Having the opportunity to volunteer and serve alongside a team who cares and that you enjoy working with makes all the difference!  Recently, our Fort Myers Service Center gave time from their weekend volunteering at a sanctuary for apes and monkeys, known as The Talkin’ Monkeys Project.

The Talkin’ Monkeys Project is a home for apes and monkeys that were abandoned, abused, confiscated by the government, or even formerly used in research. This sanctuary is home to an array of educational programs and internships. The project is exclusively running on donations and volunteer work, relying heavily on the strong partnership with Florida Gulf Coast University’s students, who come to serve, learn, and even work with the network of sanctuaries worldwide.

The Northwest team was able to be a part of a big project that the sanctuary needed support with: A proposed orchard that will eventually sustainably feed the monkeys and apes. The Florida team assisted in clearing the area and planting 24 different trees and bushes. While volunteering, the Northwest team was also able to take a tour of the grounds and even feed the animal residents. It was such an honor to be able to support the Project’s mission and these animals.

The Talkin’ Monkey Project is grateful for the Fort Myers team and all that they did, even gifting the team t-shirts for all their hard work. Northwest is always looking for ways to go above and beyond to honor their customers and the community, especially in ways that our teammates feel passionate about. We are thankful for teammates who give their time to make someone’s day brighter.

Alpharetta Service Center Hosts First Responder Cookout in Roswell

Alpharetta Service Center Hosts First Responder Cookout in Roswell

Our Alpharetta team recently hosted a First Responder Cookout to give back to those who do so much for our community. The team provided the Roswell Police Department burgers, hotdogs, chips, and drinks! Overall, the cookout was a huge success, and a great turnout from our first responders.

Northwest has been hosting First Responder Cookouts across the Southeast since 2017, an initiative we look forward to every year. We have been able to host multiple cookouts this year, with even more on the way!

Having the opportunity to give back to those who have already given so much means a lot to our team. It’s an honor to show a small amount of our appreciation for all they do for us daily.

Lawrenceville GA Northwest Office Supports Local Customer with Yard Maintenace

Lawrenceville GA Northwest Office Supports Local Customer with Yard Maintenace

We are consistently reminded just how much the smallest act can have the biggest impact! Recently, a Lawrenceville teammate noticed a customer’s yard and how it needed a bit of care and attention. The teammate has established a long-term relationship with the customer and knew that caring for this lawn on the customer’s own was incredibly difficult for her. Our teammate brought the concern back to the whole team, and they came together to rake up and care for the customers yard one day after hours.  

The service team and Service Center Manager all helped out and had the yard looking great by the end. The customer was thankful for the time and attention paid outside of her usual pest control service. When asked about this small act of kindness and why they went out as a team to support this customer, the Lawrenceville GDT Ambassador said, “Northwest is truly a family. We want our customers to feel like they are family as well.”  

To create extraordinary experiences for our customers means noticing the small things and getting to know them personally, not just for the partnership for pest protection but also because our customers are our neighbors and community members. We’re thankful to our Lawrenceville team for taking the time to support this customer and for all they do to keep their eyes open to serve.

The annual Northwest Exterminating First Responder Cookouts are officially in full force! Every year, Northwest offices across the Southeast sponsor a First Responder Cookout in their local area to support our first responders and thank them for all they do to protect us and our communities.  

The Buford First Responder Cookout was held recently, and the team had a great time hosting all those that stopped by for a burger and all the fixings. Getting a chance to have lunch and talk together is always appreciated by our team!
