SERVPRO “TEAMS UP” WITH LOCAL STUDENTS FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Here at SERVPRO of Chester, Hardin, Henderson and McNairy Counties, we care about our community and our neighbors. We recently teamed up with some local students to make a difference in the lives of two families. In the process of working a recent fire loss, one of our associates opened his heart and came up with a beautiful way to support a friend in need, and get some work done!
Due to the extent of fire and smoke damage, one particular home was going to be completely stripped down to the studs and rebuilt. Our associate’s son had been talking to him about his friend, whose mother was recently diagnosed with cancer and no longer able to work. Due to medical treatments, travel and everyday life, the family was struggling financially. So our associate rallied the troops and made a plan! Several friends of the young man, along with their fathers, volunteered their time and muscles to complete the “tearing out phase”.
When we proposed our plan to the homeowner, she was moved by the generosity of the boys. So with her permission, they went to work and cleared the structure in a long day’s work. SERVPRO of Chester, Hardin, Henderson and McNairy Counties donated all proceeds from the demolition to the young man and his family. Work was done, lessons were learned, and memories were made. Two families were helped, and multiple hearts were touched. It was a great day that none of us will soon forget.
