SERVPRO® : Helping with Hygiene
SERVPRO® : Helping with Hygiene.
The Charles County Children’s Aid Society located in Waldorf, MD and has been assisting families for the past 85 years. On October 24th I was lucky enough to have been in attendance to their celebration. As most of you already know we have a phenomenal relationship with The Charles County Children’s Aid Society but even I was astonished at the additional things I saw and learned that evening.
Normally I am running through the door to pick up a delivery or rushing to drop of things off that they need, but not that evening. That evening I was able to step back and observe the facility, the working members, volunteers and board members. I noticed things that normally get lost in the hustle and bustle of service. I was able to tour the facility, see work areas, storage for Christmas connection and I even noticed bare shelves. When I asked a board member what should be in that area she informed me that they get so much help from the community but people often forget about personal hygiene. PERSONAL HYGIENE? That’s what should have lined those bare shelves!!! I sat there thinking of how I could help with this as she explained in detail how those items are overlooked. She spoke with such a grateful heart but I knew something needed to be done. This is when the “Helping with Hygiene” campaign was born.
The next day when I returned to work I immediately sprung into action and got approvals for us to do this on behalf of The Charles County Children’s Aid Society. I sent out mass emails and began making boxes. I had a great response from the community and we are currently running this campaign until December 1, 2019.
