SERVPRO® Announces Firefighter Appreciation Program, $100,000 Donation to First Responders Children’s Foundation
SERVPRO to partner with Northern Trust to honor first responders at PGA TOUR event
Gallatin, June 23, 2021 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - SERVPRO, along with its more than 1,900 franchise owners across the U.S. and Canada, is proud to be able to give back to first responders in two ways in honor of the 20th anniversary of 9/11 this summer – and beyond.
First, SERVPRO is partnering with Northern Trust, title sponsor of THE NORTHERN TRUST PGA TOUR event scheduled for Aug. 16-22, 2021, at the Liberty National Golf Course in Jersey City, New Jersey, to launch the Firefighter Appreciation Program.
The goal of the program is to honor first responders ahead of the Sept. 11 anniversary. SERVPRO will provide free admission, as well as a dedicated venue on-site and special amenities to help ensure they have a comfortable and enjoyable weekend at the tournament – the first event of the PGA TOUR’s season-ending FedExCup Playoffs.
“Each and every day, SERVPRO’s 16,000-plus teammates witness the admirable work brave first responders perform as they rush into a disaster while others rush out,” SERVPRO CEO Rick Isaacson said.
“It’s only after these acts of bravery by those selfless men and women that our SERVPRO teammates can step in to mitigate the water and fire damage and begin the task of reconstructing the homes, businesses, and lives of those affected.”
Secondly, SERVPRO is thrilled to announce its support of the First Responders Children’s Foundation. FRCF does the noble work of providing financial support to children and families who have lost a parent in the line of duty or who are enduring hardship due to tragedy. Beyond that, FRCF funds educational programs operated by first responder organizations that benefit children and the communities in which they live.
To launch the relationship with FRCF, SERVPRO is donating an initial $100,000 to help support FRCF’s mission.
“As CEO, I cannot overstate how proud SERVPRO is to present the Firefighter Appreciation Program or how excited we are to announce our support of the First Responders Children’s Foundation. We applaud the foundation’s work, and we are proud to support the children and families of first responders,” Isaacson said.
