The Spirit of Service at SERVPRO of Northeast Wichita
Floods, fires, mold remediation, biohazardous clean-up, and cleaning are all work we do which while grueling and tough at times is fulfilling because we are helping people in our community. It’s not uncommon for people to call us in a complete panic because their basement is flooded or a fire has covered their belongings in soot. Often people calm down when they hear us say “we are one our way and we know what to do”. These same values of helping and service influence our company and team to contribute to even more. Here are some of the ways SERVPRO of Northeast Wichita and our employees serve the Wichita community.
This has got to be one of the most famous fund raising events in Wichita. We love our pets in Wichita and here at SERVPRO so getting involved and sponsoring Woodstock was an easy decision. We set-up a booth, gave out food scoops and a bunch other fun items and even set-up some corn hole toss for fun. Woofstock is great day of fun and in the end raised over $240,000 for our the Kansas Humane Society.
Blarney Breakfast/Delano St. Patrick’s Day Parade
We have been involved in the Blarney Breakfast and St. Patricks Day Parade off and on since we opened our doors. Our owner Patrick Butler moved to Wichita from Ireland, SERVPRO’s colors of green, orange and white are the same as the Irish flag and Patrick first worked in America with people with developmental disabilities so these events tie into each other on multiple levels. If you have ever seen the leprechauns marching down the road in the parade it was probably us!
Habitat for Humanity
Our staff has participated in several builds over years. It is a great fit for us to put our building skills together with our goal of service in the community. If you ever have done a Habitat build you know how rewarding and fun it can be.
The Lords Diner
Our wonderful Rodeana Garon has been volunteering at The Lords Diner long before she came to work with us. Her spirit of service is big reason she fits in with us so well! In addition to her work with The Lords Diner she has started Meals on Wheels with herself and Michael Butler which fits in really well with the amount of driving they already do around town!
Besides that we love to take part in all kinds of events from the Starkey, Inc.’s Ice Cream Social or Alzheimer’s Associations Walk to End Alzheimers event. We are always looking for ways we can get involved in the community whether it be through sponsoring events to actively volunteering. Don’t be afraid to reach out! (316) 684-6700
