In September, Logan, Utah-based Fox Pest Control spearheaded a new company-wide service initiative: the Green Glove Project. More than a dozen Fox branches around the nation, including the Logan corporate office, celebrated by hosting local service projects in their communities. Participating locations included Corpus Christi, Albany, McAllen and Lubbock, Texas; Boston, Mass.; Virginia Beach, Va.; Rochester, Nyack and Syracuse, N.Y.; Chicago, Ill.; Baton Rouge, La.; Oxford, Ct.; Harrisburg, Pa.; and Cranston, R.I.
Jason Riddick, branch manager of the Virginia Beach location, organized a trash pickup in front of a historic Norfolk, Va., church. The team collected 20 bags — almost 200 pounds of trash.
“Through a long summer of working, COVID-19 and everything else they have going on in their personal lives, the technicians at our office found a way to make time for someone else,” Riddick said in a news release. “This area got some attention it’s needed for years.”
Corpus Christi team members painted the interior of Corpus Christi Hope House, a shelter that houses women and children. Branch Manager Jordon Pentacost said in the news release that although they’re not professional painters, “it felt good to have fun and give back at the same time.”
Seven representatives of Fox Pest Control’s Harrisburg branch repaired a damaged fence for a customer in York, Pa., whose husband is struggling with cancer. The branch provided a pro bono pest control treatment, and will continue with a free follow-up, quoted at more than $300.
“This initiative gives us the opportunity to lend a helping hand to those around us and make a positive impact,” Fox Pest Control Internet Marketer Brittyn Odland noted in the news release. “We plan to continue to do these projects in the years to come.”
