Employees of Lousiville, Ky.-based OPC Pest Services, a Rollins brand, collected and donated food for Thanksgiving meals for 20 families in the Bowling Green, Ky., area.
Kelsey Gallihugh, office manager of the Bowling Green branch, was interviewed by WNKY on the day the company started collecting donations, which helped spread the word. Each of the families received a three-pound turkey breast, yams, cranberry sauce, carrots, green beans, peas, corn, mashed potatoes, cornbread mix, fried apples, stuffing, and mac and cheese.
The leftover food items were donated to Barren River Area Development District (BRADD), a program that specializes in providing help to elderly and underprivileged families in Warren County and surrounding areas. BRADD provided OPC with the list of the 20 families they knew were in need this year. In addition, the OPC Pest Services Lexington branch was able to help 10 additional families through a sister program similar to BRADD.
“Our branch was acquired by OPC in November of last year. I’ve always wanted to do something to give back to the community, so I thought this would be a great time to do it,” Gallihugh said in the news release. “I had a blast doing it! I’m so proud of our guys for getting into the spirit to deliver the meals. It was an awesome team effort, that’s for sure!”
