SERVPRO of Rockford, Servicing the Community

The best way for a business to succeed in our eyes is to be involved in our community.  We at SERVPRO volunteer to several local charities, but our primary organization right now is the Alpine Kiwanis as they prepare for "Brat Days" next week the 16th and 17th.  This local charity raised approximately $100,000 that went back to the community through various childrens' charities.  We are very proud to donate our time to "serving" at multiple locations throughout the event, as well as helping deliver foods from one location to another.  This group helped the "United for Youth" project (which is a combined effort between the boy and girl scout organizations) raise money for their new green building, as well as helping the local Boys and Girls Clubs and their subsidiary charities.  There are also several other Kiwanis clubs in the area including the Rock River Heritage Kiwanis Club, which the owner vp's for.  This particular group raises money through peanut sales.  It is not as big of an event as "Brat Days", but the money raised from this fundraiser also goes back into the community to support local children based charities.

The other group we are very active with right now is Rosie's Birthday Club.  This group serves children who have never had the honor of celebrating their birthday.  They provide a gift of their choosing on the day of their birthday, and once a month they through a birthday party to celebrate all of the birthdays within said month.  They had their first annual fundraiser in March of 2010, and are getting ready to have their second fundraiser in September (on the 15th).  They are birthday themed fundraisers and provide a fun filled, birthday party atmosphere. 

We believe that supporting charties similar to these that we can have a greater impact on more than just those who end up being a customer/client.  Events and groups like this serve a greater good than that of our restoration and remediation work.  Groups like this step up and go beyond just helping someone in one time of need, but maybe several times of need.  We strongly encourage anyone and everyone to find some local group to be a part of and become a part of someone else's life!
