Ft. Lauderdale Thanksgiving Event
Commitment to the needs of our community is the focus of SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale South. During the days preceding Thanksgiving, 2017, we partnered with the Tamara James Foundation to meet the needs of families in the area who were at risk of going without a festive and nourishing meal.
We joined forces with this organization founded by Tamara James, a standout basketball star for South Broward High, the University of Miami, the WNBA, and the Israeli league. The Tamara James Foundation mission strives “to empower, educate, and strengthen today’s and tomorrow’s athletes by providing opportunities for everyone to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities.” Recently elected mayor of Dania Beach, James reached out to local businesses to support this mission, and SERVPRO was only too happy to add to the effort at the Tamara James Foundation’s 10th Annual Thanksgiving Drive on November 21, 2017.
Danica Beach was the natural location for the Drive. Shelters awaited the truckloads of food al all kinds. Canned goods, collard greens, sweet potatoes, onions, bell peppers, turkeys, and much more arrived in generous quantities. Volunteers packed row after row of bright orange bags ready to go home with one of the 300 plus families benefiting from this event. Beautiful weather and sunny smiles created an upbeat mood mirrored by all attending.
We were honored to contribute bags to help our fellow citizens and we are proud to be a part of such a positive and sustaining program. Our employees and others from all walks of life assisted along with elected officials, police and fire department representatives. The energy and joy of the volunteers and families participating in the Thanksgiving Drive are evident on every face captured on film.
Our restoration business team celebrates the connection made with others in the communities we serve during the Tamara James Foundation’s 10th Annual Thanksgiving Drive. Building a sense of community by sharing and caring is the bedrock of our business, helping avoid want and worry while standing firm with our neighbors in the face of disasters.
