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!

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 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.

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.
