Jacksonville, Fla.-based McCall Service recently donated a total of $8,925 to United Way Northeast Florida to help out during the COVID-19 pandemic. The funds were raised in part from an April promotion that provided a discount to customers for new annual services and a $25 to the agency. CFO David Cooksey reports that more than 350 new annual services in April made the donation a reality.
“It’s always been important to us to do what we can to support the community that has always supported us as a family-run business,” Cooksey said in a news release. “We saw the impact that this virus was having on so many people, and knew we needed to come together to help in some way.”
In related news, McCall Service has introduced ViPro Shield, a proactive disinfecting service for commercial businesses. Noting on the web page for the new service that its team is comprised of “cleaning and disinfecting experts,” the page goes on to say:
We understand the importance of keeping environments clean and free of harmful pathogens and viruses. Our experiences consist of disinfecting hospitals and other facilities that have been at risk for exposure to various infectious diseases.
