Happy Holidays from

It's Time to Give Back 
As 2009 draws to a close and the time of year approached for Thanksgiving and Holiday cards, our staff at ServiceMaster Building Maintenance agreed that given the difficult times many people in our community are facing, our resources would be better spent trying to help those in need.  Earlier this week, staff from both our Madison and Appleton offices purchased and delivered food to six community & food pantry organizations in both the Madison and Fox Valley areas.  The money donated toward food is enough to provide over 14,000 meals to members of our community!  Read below to learn more about the organizations who received donations from ServiceMaster.
Isauro, Jorge, Jackie, and Kathy from our Madison office delivered food to the Goodman Community Center.  The Center runs many activities and programs for residents ofGoodman Madison's near east side, including fitness classes, senior programs, teen and youth programs, a food pantry, parent & family programs, among others.

Pauls2Paul's Pantry, Green Bay.  Heather and Kelly from our Appleton office delivered food to this pantry, which celebrated 25 years in operation this year and assists those in need from Brown County.  Depending on family size, visitors can utilize the pantry up to three times per week.  This pantry runs solely on private community donations.
St Vincent
St. Vincent de Paul also received food donations.  Being the largest pantry in Dane County, it is open five days per week and provides people and families in need with three days of groceries each time they visit.  Last year alone, over $1,100,000 worth of food was donated.  Learn more here.

Outstanding Cleaning Services
Thank you for the outstanding cleaning services provided by ServiceMaster. From our daily cleaning routine to scheduled carpet/upholstery shampooing, your people do an excellent job. I really appreciate how responsive you have been to any request I’ve made or when we need a quick “touch-up carpet shampoo” because of a spill… it’s so convenient to take care of this before a stain sets in! We take great pride in providing our clients and employees with a clean and professional looking environment. You’ve provided great customer service over the years, so please keep up the good work!
