Austin, Texas-based ABC Home & Commercial Services, owned by Pest Management Professional magazine’s “ABCs of Growth” co-columnist Bobby Jenkins, is donating a portion of its holiday light sales to its local Ronald McDonald House Charities this holiday season.
From Oct. 1, 2020, through mid-December, ABC will donate $25 of every new holiday light installation to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas, Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Antonio, and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Corpus Christi, combined.
“We are excited to be able to make a meaningful contribution to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi,” Jenkins said in a news release. “Our holiday lights will hopefully ‘light up some lives’ while keeping families close when getting care for their children.”
Carolyn Schwarz, CEO of RMHC Central Texas, noted in the news release that “the holiday season is a particularly difficult time to be away from home with a hospitalized child. The proceeds from new home lightings this year will be put to immediate use, providing families with warm meals, a comfortable bed near their child, and so much more.”
ABC’s holiday light installations include a consultation with a designer to plan a custom system; professional installation; and careful removal of all lights and connectors after the holidays, placing them in bins for use next year.
Jenkins says the goal is to raise $25,000 among all three charities. ABC has offices and satellite offices in Austin, Bastrop, Bryan/College Station, Corpus Christi, Georgetown, Marble Falls, San Antonio, San Marcos, and Temple/Belton, Texas.
