JACKSONVILLE, FL—Two Jacksonville pest management companies donated their expertise to help eradicate destructive drywood termites from a pair of homes operated by the Prisoners of Christ ministry.

Prisoners of Christ is a faith-based program providing re-entry services for men coming out of prison as they transition back into civilian life. The ministry operates five transition houses in the Jacksonville area where recently released prisoners live and receive counseling and life skills training. Two of these homes, however, are infested with drywood termites. While not encountered by north Florida homeowners as frequently as their subterranean termite brethren, drywoods still pose a serious threat to the structural integrity of a house.

McCall Service and Rivers Pest Control performed full-house fumigations on each structure.

“Investing in those who are willing to make positive changes in their lives and giving back to the community is what McCall Service is about,” says Bryan Cooksey, president and CEO of the Jacksonville-based, second-generation pest management and lawn care company. “We have been blessed by our customers, and we are giving back to the community that blessed us.”

“What McCall Service and Rivers Pest Control are doing is a real credit to their sense of community and compassion,” says Ken Durkee, president of the Prisoners of Christ program in Jacksonville. “We rely on donors to help out, and the in-kind work these two companies are providing is greatly appreciated and lets us keep the ministry moving forward and achieving its goals.”
