This past October, Northwest teammates partnered with HomeAid Atlanta and Status: Home for HomeAid Atlanta Care Day. The combined efforts from all teams resulted in everyone being able to serve over 15 apartments! Together, the teams painted seven and removed carpet from ten apartment units.
HomeAid Atlanta, established in 2001, is a local affiliate of HomeAid and their goal is to create safe housing for those experiencing or at risk of homelessness through construction, community engagement, and education. Every month they make it their mission to host a Care Day and partner with another non-profit organization in the local area. The month of October they partnered with Status: Home.
Status: Home (formerly Jerusalem House), founded in 1988, is the oldest and largest HIV/AIDS permanent supportive housing provider in Atlanta. Since opening the doors to their first house in 1989, Status: Home has helped countless individuals, including children, by providing a place to call home.
Northwest Good Deed and Builder Support teams have a long-standing relationship with HomeAid Atlanta. For over 10 years, we’ve been working on projects and initiatives together. We are thankful for the opportunity to work on yet another project together to support the lives of the community members and families who will call the apartments homes. Our team is grateful to be a part of something so meaningful and can’t wait to be of assistance again!
At Northwest, we believe in putting our Customers First and serving our community with a Servant’s Heart. Recently, our Newnan Service Center provided lunch for the Senoia Police Department, our local first responders!
The day was filled with delicious food, friendly conversations, and heartfelt appreciation. It was a wonderful opportunity for our Newnan team to connect with the first responders who serve and protect our community every day. We believe that fostering strong relationships with our local community is not only a way to say thank you but to also create a sense of unity.
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.
Our teams at Northwest share a common mission – putting customers first and serving our communities with a servant’s heart. Recently, our Columbus service center hosted a First Responder Cookout for the local Columbus Police Department. The team was able to provide burgers, hot dogs, chips, drinks, and fun conversations!
Our Northwest teams have actively been involved in hosting First Responder Cookouts across the Southeast since 2017, a cherished initiative we eagerly anticipate each year. We have the privilege of hosting more than 30 cookouts a year, allowing us to express our heartfelt thanks to each local community.
For our teammates involved in these cookouts, this opportunity is immensely meaningful. It is an honor to extend even a small portion of the appreciation we hold for these dedicated individuals who give so much to our communities. Our Columbus team can’t wait until next year’s cookout!
Driven by a heartfelt desire to make a difference during “National Hunger Action Month,” Northwest’s Homewood, Alabama team came together to collect food for the Community Foodbank of Central Alabama (CFB) throughout the month of September. Homewood teammate Christina G. brought the idea to the table due to her passion for helping those who need it most.
When Christina approached CFB with her plan of gathering donations, she was met with open arms and warm hearts. The CFB team assured the Homewood team that no donation was too small. The response from the Homewood team was extraordinary and they were able to collect over $200 worth of non-perishables.
CFB has been a constant in the Central Alabama area since 1982 and has worked side by side with United Way of Central Alabama and The Greater Birmingham Foundation to stay open. In their early years they focused on feeding those in need of emergency food, but in 2016 they took the bold step to address the root causes of hunger in the area. Since broadening their mission, they have been supplying millions of meals per year to over 230 partner agencies, like shelters, food pantries, and children’s programs in 12 counties across Central Alabama. Learn more about their programs here!
The turnout exceeded Homewood’s expectations and truly reflects the Servant’s Heart initiative we strive for here at Northwest Exterminating. We are so excited to see what Christina and her team do next!
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and our Miami Service Center recently participated in the annual St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital walk/run hosted in Miami, Florida. The commitment to giving back not only reflects our team’s servant’s heart but also their unwavering dedication to good deeds in their community.
Since 2017, the Miami team has been part of the run/walk charity event, demonstrating their dedication to creating a positive impact. The event holds a special place in their hearts and allows them to contribute to the incredible work done by St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
We’re grateful for a team driven by a customer’s first and servant’s heart attitude, continuing to possess the desire to serve those in need. We can’t wait to see what the team accomplishes next!
