In 2020, We Are Grateful for the Dedicated Members of our Team
2020 certainly has been a special year. The viral pandemic has impacted family lives, business operations, social activities, and the overall health of each and every one of us. Thanksgiving celebrations everywhere are unlike the gatherings of years gone by.
This year, for this day of thanks, the team at SERVPRO of Glenview would like to wish our customers, clients, community members, and vendors a safe, healthy, and meaningful Thanksgiving. May this year bring you the opportunity to see beyond material objects, to look within, and to discover what it is that you truly value and are thankful to have.
As we take a moment to contemplate all the changes and how things are different this year, there are still many reasons we are thankful, and as such, we count our blessings.
SERVPRO of Glenview has been operating under owner Jeff Thompson, for three years, since October 2017. We are thankful for the loyal members of our team: Production Manager, Saul Perez, who has been with Jeff from the beginning; new Office Manager, Donna Thompson, who joined the office team in September; Suzie Koivun, Marketing Manager, who shifted departments in September; and Crew Chief, Ron Elmgren, who joined the production crew in March. Additionally, we are thankful we have crew members that we were able to count on in our times of need this year, as they came in and worked 10-12 hour days during the huge storm event in May. Thank you to Walden, Tim, Aaron, Steve, Luis, Matty, Brian, Zack, Aleks, Troy, Jordan, Jonah, and David.
Each of our SERVPRO team members is blessed with a wonderful family and we are grateful that they understand that at times our jobs with SERVPRO call us away from our time with them. This year in particular, families have had an extra worry, because SERVPRO of Glenview provides residential and commercial bioremediation services for the very virus that has changed the way we live our lives: coronavirus. SERVPRO of Glenview production team members have responded to positive covid exposures and provided sanitizing and disinfection services for a growing number of area businesses and residences. We are grateful they are helping our communities be safer as a result.
2020 has also been a "storm-y" year. There were days of great rainfall in our area in May and hundreds of area homes were impacted by the storm. Our teams were busy for three solid weeks in May and June, pumping out basements that flooded and providing mitigation services. In late August, Hurricane Laura made landfall in Lake Charles, LA, and SERVPRO of Glenview was one of the first franchises to respond to the call from corporate for help. Our team spent over two months in Louisiana - including having to evacuate to Houston themselves when Hurricane Delta blew through. All in all, we were among the 62 franchises who provided support and assistance to the overwhelmed residents and businesses of southwestern Louisiana. 2020 continues to be a record-breaking hurricane season. As of this writing, Hurricane Iota, a Category 5 storm, was the latest hurricane this season to make landfall. We are nearing the end of November - but we are not yet at the end of the hurricane season! Not only are we thankful to our team members for the extended time and efforts in mitigating homes and businesses in Lake Charles, LA, we extend our thanks and gratitude to their wives and families and pets that they left for over two months. We know everyone is glad our team is back home and safe!
We are thankful for continued growth in the Glenview/Northbrook communities. We are grateful for the dedicated service of our local first responders, fire fighters, police, and emergency personnel - their continued loyalty to serving our community has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated this year. Special thanks to all the healthcare workers in our lives for their extraordinary support this year!
