LaGRANGE, Ga- A group of LaGrange business leaders did not go into the office today. However, it wasn’t because they took the day off.
It’s the third annual Day of Service for ServiceMaster employees across the nation, and here in LaGrange, employees with American Home Shield are rolling up their sleeves and getting in on it.
The Home Shield volunteers put vibrant new coats of paint on the walls of the Boys and Girls Club. But another surprise was a $2500 donation. The Boys and Girls Club is thankful for all the generosity and the example it sets.
“It’s something we teach our kids and something we teach our community people and our parents. So, it just adds value to our program,” says Mekos Denson, chief executive officer of The Boys and Girls Club of West Georgia.
“It’s really nice to see the community out here, helping the children. Like I said, everything we do is for the children, so it’s just really nice to have the community involved,” says Alan Hunn, unit manager of The Boys and Girls Club of West Georgia.
The volunteers say they love supporting their community.
“We believe in being active in the community, and it’s always a good opportunity for us to get out and to really make a difference in the lives of others in our community,” says Gina Coley, director of service operations for American Home Shield.
The LaGrange workers were among a thousand ServiceMaster workers nationwide doing community service work today.
These American Home Shield employees finished up a very busy day by working on a nature trail at the senior center.
The Boys and Girls Club of West Georgia in LaGrange reminds parents they still have room for participants in the 2016-17 after school program.
