SERVPRO of Bay County is always trying to give back to our community in different ways! So, we wanted to share this story with you that absolutely touched our hearts.

We are a proud sponsor of the Veterans and First Responders luncheon. During the luncheon our Marketing Manager, Talena, gave away Gulf Coast Jam tickets as door prizes. The first winner was in tears when she was given the envelope. Talena asked, “Are you excited?” and she replied, “You have no idea, we have an adult daughter that is paraplegic and wants to see Tim McGraw, and we just can’t afford tickets this year.”

After the luncheon, the Mom called Talena to claim her prize. Talena and the Mom went on to talk about her daughter, Nikki who is 27 years old, born with Cerebral Palsy, and has been in a wheelchair her entire life. Nikki is a major Tim McGraw fan and her obsession started at age seven when she first heard the song, “Don’t Take the Girl”.

At the time, Nikki was away at camp so Nikki was not going to learn about the Gulf Coast Jam tickets until the next Friday. “Make sure you are listening as we are sure we will hear her scream all the way from Altha!”,said Mom. She then asked if we were selling tickets and Talena explained our sponsorship opportunity and asked if she needed more tickets. She replied, “Yes, one, because it takes two people to handle her and her wheelchair.”

Without hesitation, Talena told her SERVPRO of Bay County has her third ticket covered.

Blankets of Love

SERVPRO of Bay County giving out blankets of love to Hurricane Michael survivors.

On a cold day in December the SERVPRO family is found handing out green love with some warm blankets and some delicious hot chocolate.    What is all this about you ask? On October 10th, 2018 Hurricane Michael paid a visit to the Florida Panhandle and forever changed the landscape and lives of this coastal community.  That is when the employees of SERVPRO of Bay County jumped into action doing their jobs and working round the clock to accommodate the enormous amount of homes and businesses that desperately needed our help. Our SERVPRO family did not stop there, they were constantly trying to find new ways to help.  A suggestion was made that our group become involved with Hope and Healing.  This event sponsored by City of Panama City and other volunteers was to provide hope through food, clothing and toys for Bay County families. We jumped at the chance to help, and hence the green blankets of love.  Over 1000 families were assisted during this event. Providing love and a little hope to the community we call home. SERVPRO of Bay County employees left feeling they received more than they gave.  Now that's a warm feeling!
