Grove Park Foundation is dedicated to revitalizing the Grove Park neighborhood and improving quality of life by working with local partners, leaders and residents to create a healthy, equitable and vibrant community.
“We believe everyone deserves a safe place to live, work and play, and we plan to honor that commitment to community service through various forms of giving locally and across the country,” says Gary Rollins, vice chairman and CEO of Rollins Inc. and PMP Hall of Famer (Class of 2012). “This partnership is only the beginning of a much larger vision we have to continue giving back to the communities that we serve.”
Last week, a group of Rollins volunteers and program leaders visited to help with various outdoor projects, including building garden boxes and yard cleanup.
“It can be hard to find volunteer opportunities by yourself, which is why I was excited to learn that my company was starting a program that could offer me the chance to make a difference,” says Catelyn Anderson, a Rollins employee who participated in the volunteer effort. “Not only did I get to meet people in my own city who I wouldn’t have ordinarily met, but I also got to connect with people within my company. I think most people are looking to improve their community but might not have the access and connections to put it all together. Through this partnership, Rollins gave us that opportunity.”
Representatives from Rollins’ Atlanta family of brands, including employees from its corporate offices, Northwest Exterminating, Trutech and Critter Control, will have the opportunity to volunteer in the Grove Park neighborhood.
“Grove Park Foundation is grateful for the partnership with Rollins and their family of brands,” says Debra Edelson, executive director of Grove Park Foundation. “They have already been involved in serving our community and are making an impact. We look forward to our collaboration in the future.”
