In mid-December, Northwest Exterminating’s Good Deeds Team and several colleagues ventured to the Toys for Tots warehouse near its Atlanta, Ga., headquarters for two days of volunteering and fellowship. The Rollins-owned company has partnered with Toys for Tots for several years.
“This comes back full circle, as evident in the smiles of the parents and each child who receives toys through this program,” says Kristen Milligan, co-director of the Good Deeds Team.
The Toys for Tots goal is “to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.” This aligns with the Northwest Good Deeds Team’s goal of providing simple, meaningful opportunities for employees to create a positive impact in the community in which they serve. Northwest’s co-Presidents, Stephen and Stanford Phillips, joined the team to help fulfill orders.
“It’s amazing to see everyone helping, and they are genuinely happy to be doing so,” Milligan says.
