CHS Teacher Appreciation

Due to Covid-19 we have not been able to do normal community events and normal marketing visits.  We decided to figure out how to continue providing positive vibes to our community and actively stay involved where we can.   So, this year for Teachers Appreciation Week we chose a school - Columbia High School - and put together an appreciation gift for them.   We purchased "Teachers Rock" cups and bought gift cards - one from a local restaurant and they added $5 and then one from a local brewery (food or drinks) we purchased $10 gift cards and they provided one free drink card.  We bought cupcakes at a discounted price so we could "sweeten" their day and 1000 Degree Pizza donated a $5 coupon to every one of them!  So many smiles and laughs - it truly was a great day at SERVPRO!

Appreciation for our First Responders

Due to Covid - 19 creating havoc on our country, we decided to step outside the box and try and make a little sunshine in the lives of the First Responders on the front line.  For three days we delivered lunch - pizza, subs & wings - along with gourmet cupcakes and a little SERVPRO trinket to the Columbia County Fire Departments.  7 Stations in all, and over 20 firefighters!  We appreciate ALL YOU DO for our community!

Christmas on The Square

Every year we are blessed in our community to have "Christmas on The Square" in Suwannee County, which is Live Oak, Fl.  It brings many of us together that only see each other annually and many local talented singers, dancers along with vendors selling their items and amazing food.  From 3/4 year olds to adults we enjoy the sounds of Christmas throughout the day and get to see many of our customers that we have provided services for.  It is a huge way to just say "Thank you" by giving out SERVPRO trinkets and just saying Merry Christmas!

Elks Lodge 893 Charity

Being members of the local Elks Lodge #893 has made possible for us to donate time and energy in so many ways to our community and local VA.  We help collect items to take to the domicilary.  We have brought in a singing/dancing group called Revolution several years in a row to perform at our local VA hospital and domicilary.  We collect easter eggs for the local elementary schools, provide scholarships to teenagers and that is amongst just a few of the things we do.  

2017 Craft Beer & Wine Festival

Another photo from one of the events we chose to sponsor this year.  Photo is one of our sponsoring flags flyng in the wind.  Thankful for the relationship with PGA so we have this to use in our community at events.  Hundreds of people came out and we had beautiful weather. 

2nd Annual Craft Beer & Wine Festival

For the 2nd time we sponsored and attended the Craft Beer & Wine Festival.  What an amazing day we had for it.  Not to hot and not cold or raining!  We saw many amazing vendors from around the state as well as some local brewers getting ready to open.  So awesome that our community has these events and we are able to sponsor and help our chamber bring them to Lake City!  Looking forward to next year already!

Saying Thank You to Our First Responders!

Every now and then our Marketing Representative Brandi takes things to our Property Managers, Agents, Adjusters, First Responders, and Customers in general. Today happened to be the day Brandi took cookies to the local Police and Fire Departments. We love building and maintaining relationships with people who have used us in the past or may need us in the future. 

Lake City's Inaugural Gingerbread Competition

SERVPRO of Columbia and Suwannee Counties participated in the inaugural Ronald McDonald House Charities "Build a house for the House" Competition. We had 1.5 hrs to completely assemble our "masterpiece". In true SERVPRO fashion our Gingerbread house had to be unique so....It had a water damage. We also built the SERVPRO warehouse in the background. Everything on the board was edible except the SERVPRO Vans. We won SECOND place which we are very proud of. All proceeds from the event went directly to our local Ronald McDonald House located in Gainesville, Fl.

Christmas on the Square 2016 - Live Oak

Marketing Rep Brandi and Cleaning Specialist Sharon had so much fun. They got to see familiar faces and meet new ones! We truly are part of an awesome community. We were able to answer questions about "what SERVPRO does", hand out little trinkets, and take up donations for Relay For Life in exchange for baked goods. 

Trunk or Treat

We were excited to participate in Trunk or Treat/ National Night out for 2016. Our Marketing Rep Brandi chose the Nightmare before Christmas theme and it was a huge hit! We have some adorable kids in Columbia County.

Christmas on the Square/Live Oak

Was a bit chilly, but we were glad to set up for the annual Christmas on The Square downtown Live Oak again this year. Handing out trinkets and seeing past customers and hopefully welcoming new ones. We also were glad to be next to the local State Farm and socialize with the Good Neighbor Bear all day through.

Altrusa Club of Lake City at Conference

As a member of the Altrusa Club of Lake City, Kim Nicholson has been blessed to be a part of many happenings since 2010 when she became a member. This past weekend a group of us went to Tampa to our annual conference where we donated art supplies to the host clubs charity this year which is in Gainesville. We as a club were also awarded many awards, but to top off the event the Lake City Club won the esteemed First Place Outstanding Club Award! In addition we won first place for the Mamie L Bass Service Award in recognition of our Get Fit project last year!
