At the heart of our business, our team strives to live out five core values each day. One of those, partnership, is at the forefront. What is partnership? Partnership can be defined as, “the state or condition of being a partner; participation; association; joint interest.”
Since early March, Guarantee Restoration Services has worked with numerous organizations along the Gulf Coast. These charitable partnerships have given us the opportunity to serve our community during such a difficult time for all.
Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank
In mid-May, we started a campaign to garner engagement and bring awareness to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank’s mission. Currently, this food bank serves 11 parishes in the extended Baton Rouge area. Before COVID-19, they donated 100,000 meals per month. Since the pandemic began, it has donated that amount per week. After a month-long campaign, we were able to reach our goal of 500 likes and shares. On Friday, July 17th, GRS donated $1500.00 to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. We also donated fogging services to their 50,000+ square foot facility.
The Ochsner Hospital System includes 40 owned, managed and affiliated hospitals and specialty hospitals and more than 100 health centers and urgent care centers across Louisiana and coastal Mississippi. In June, we donated $1500.00 to the Ochsner Medical Center in Baton Rouge. Additionally, our team went to the Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner on July 9th and 10th to disinfect vehicles for all healthcare workers and first responders. In addition to the cleanings, workers were provided waters, Gatorades and snacks courtesy of GRS.
Livingston Parish Public Schools
Back during the 2016 flood, the Livingston Parish Public School system called on Guarantee Restoration to restore and re-occupy many its schools. At the end of May, our team successfully cleaned all 43 of its school campuses. Most recently, the school board contracted us to re-clean every school building before the 2020-2021 school year starts in a couple weeks. This partnership was featured on few, local news outlets, including WBRZ Channel 5, NBC Channel 33 and Fox Channel 44.
Finally, Guarantee Restoration has donated masks to a couple different governmental entities. First, District Attorney Hillar Moore picked up some masks for his office. We also gave some additional masks to Sheriff Sid Gautreaux and his deputies at the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.
There When You Need Us Most
As we continue to face the COVID-19 pandemic, we have continuously adapted our business practices and done what we can to help those in need. Service is incredibly important to our company, and we are thankful for the opportunities we have had to serve our communities in need.
