Arrow Exterminators aids March of Dimes


June 26, 2017

Team members at Atlanta–based Arrow Exterminators raised a record-breaking $44,000 this year for the March of Dimes.

For more than a decade, they have donated their time and money to help the not-for-profit organization, which strives to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

This year, employees capped off their fundraising efforts at the 2017 March for Babies event, a 5.3 mile walk through Brook Run Park in Dunwoody, Ga. More than 200 of Arrow’s team members, family members, and friends walked together to support the March of Dimes at this event, which raises money for babies in the community.

At Arrow Exterminators, individual service centers and corporate teams kept the momentum going with friendly competition throughout a six-week fundraising period. Companywide fundraisers included BBQs for Babies, a family bingo night, and car washes. Several managers hosted a “Pie Your Boss” contest to raise money for the March of Dimes.

“Raising money for an organization like the March of Dimes is what our core value ‘community’ is all about,” said Arrow Exterminators CEO and President Emily Thomas Kendrick. “The March of Dimes impacts the lives of so many families and I could not be prouder of our team members for raising over $44,000 that will support the March of Dimes and their invaluable research and dedication to preventing premature birth.”

The March of Dimes assists in local communities by helping mothers take charge of their health and acts globally by sharing best practices in perinatal health. The organization was started by President Franklin Roosevelt at a time when polio was on the rise, and helped fund research for vaccines that effectively ended the epidemic.
