Fox Pest Control’s Oxford, Conn.-based office recently donated more than $1,400 to two charities. Connecticut’s Fox sales representatives gave $728 of earnings to the Epilepsy Foundation to improve the lives of those dealing with epilepsy and seizure disorders. Bryant White, co-founder of the Logan, Utah-based firm, then matched this donation to support local non-profit organizations affected by COVID-19.
According to a news release, Carson Rupe, sales manager for Fox’s Oxford office, presented the opportunity to all the sales representatives to donate their income toward a charity of their choice. The sales representatives collaborated with team members and customers to determine where to donate collectively.
A Fox Pest Control customer suggested they donate to the Epilepsy Foundation. The organization leads the fight in overcoming the challenges of living with epilepsy and works to advance therapies and treatments.
White recognized this as a time to also give to local organizations, the news release notes. White donated to The Valley Community COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund, which assists non-profit organizations struggling from the effects of COVID-19 in the Oxford area.
Fox Pest Control has a reputation for giving back. In April, for example, the company worked with customers to collect non-perishable food items for those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic. Technicians collected items from customer doorsteps during their scheduled treatment. The items were disinfected, stored and delivered to the local organizations.
In May, it raised $1,100 to fight childhood poverty via a virtual Red Nose Day event. And on June 19, it helped host a drive-in graduation ceremony for Premier High School, a Pharr, Texas-based facility designed for credit recovery and early graduation.
Founded in 2012, Fox Pest Control offers residential and commercial pest control services, has served more than 50,000 customers and has 18 branch locations nationwide.
