SERVPRO Staff Continue to Make Difference in Community
While SERVPRO South Brevard is committed to serving its community through exemplary water and fire restoration service, we also want to serve our community in other ways. One of our staff members recently took part in a community event through the Melbourne Beach Rotary Club which was planned for such a purpose.
The Melbourne Beach Rotary Club is a part of Rotary, an international organization made up of professional business leaders. There are more than 1.2 million members, called rotarians, that reside in 160 countries and are a part of 30,000 clubs. These clubs meet up weekly with the objective of finding ways to serve their community. Going by the motto “Service Above Self,” these clubs organize community service projects that address major issues in society such as clean water, children at risk, poverty, hunger, illiteracy, and violence.
Recently the Melbourne Beach Rotary Club hosted an event to raise money for Candlelighters of Brevard. This organization exists to provide children with cancer a mental, physical and emotional release from their disease. Through programs and services such as Home Away From Home where family members of patients are put up for free to be by their loved one, the Utility Assistance Program designed to help pay the family’s utility bills, and the Angel Fund which provides a one-time financial donation to families that suffer the loss of a child, the organization is able to make the lives of child cancer patients and their families just a little bit easier.
To raise money for this noble cause, the Melbourne Beach Rotary Club held a golf tournament at Aquarina Golf Course in Melbourne Beach. Of all the proceeds received by the Rotary Club during the event, 75 percent went directly to the organization to aid them in running their programs. The donation by the Rotary Club will help Candlelighters of Brevard continue to help young cancer patients and their families with whatever program or service that they need during this difficult time.
SERVPRO Marketing Representative Heath Parks is a proud member of the Melbourne Beach Rotary Club. Following the ethos of SERVPRO, Heath does whatever he can to help the members of his community. In addition to being a volunteer firefighter, Heath also takes part in community events that are geared toward helping those within his community. One such event that he has taken part in was the golf tournament earlier this month. He’s one of a number of staff members who go out of their way to make a positive in their community.
Providing water, fire, and smoke restoration to those that have suffered such a fate in their homes, SERVPRO’s focus is to help the members of their community get through difficult times. But that’s not something that stays within the doors of the company. SERVPRO also encourages their staff to make a difference in their own community however they can. Heath’s commitment to his community is indicative of the culture that SERVPRO strives to create within the business and spread to their staff members.
