2020 SERVPRO Virtual Conference

Every year, SERVPRO HQ hosts a large convention celebration for our franchise owners so this year, due to COVID, our corporate team decided to host their first virtual conference. This allowed not only the franchise owners but all of the SERVPRO team to join. They creatively held live educational webinars on different topics from marketing to cleaning product education. We even had the opportunity to listen to an amazing keynote speaker, Kevin Brown right in our office. He used to be apart of the SERVPRO team and still is in so many ways. It was a real treat to listen to him speak about casting vision on yourself and the team. We are very proud to a part of a network that pushes forward in ingenuity and class.

We are cleaning up ERV (Emergency Ready Vehicle) back at our warehouse during the COVID19 pandemic. We have assigned an area in our warehouse for American Red Cross ERV to park and for the volunteers to have access to the vehicle whenever they want.

Food Rescue (Final Week)

At the beginning of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we found the opportunity to help at the Northeast Iowa Food Bank by taking over the Food Rescue routes on Tuesday and Thursday. For almost 2 months, we were able to fill a need by rescuing food from 4 grocery stores and taking them to the Food Bank. The usual volunteers are coming back and we aren't needed anymore but we are glad about what we were able to achieve for the community in such a short time. We definitely recommend volunteering for this organization.

Food Bank (Week Seven)

We are doing NEW things! For example, Dani (Market Support Coordinator), drove the SERVPRO Transit Vehicle for the first time! Despite the size of this vehicle, she was happy to sit on the driver's seat and lead the way to pick up baked goods to our local food bank. AND IN THE RAIN! The Transit was such a help... because of its space, we were able to load all the food without making extra trips.

CE Classes for Insurance Agents (06/11/2020)

We hosted our very first CE class of the year in a new location. New Hampton, IA! We were happy to pick an area where we can invite Insurance agents in the SERVPRO of Decorah and SERVPRO of Black Hawk's footprint. We were afraid that we had to cancel the event due to the pandemic but we were able to cut down the class to only 20 individuals, practice social distancing, and offer SERVPRO clean location. It was very good to see familiar and even some new faces!

Food Bank (Week Four) (Red Nose Day 2020)

During COVID-19, Red Nose day skipped their calling card, the red clown nose to a digital Red Nose for safety reasons but we were persistent and made our own cut out red noses to put on our face masks as we picked up food from our local grocery stores to take them to the Food Bank. Red Nose Day goal is "to end child poverty by funding programs that keep children safe, healthy, and educated." Red Nose Day has supported many programs such as Feeding America. Our local food bank is connected to the Feeding America network.
