United Way of Porter County’s Day of Caring

"SERVPRO of Porter County Sales and Marketing Representative, Lindsay Johnson, helped with United Way of Porter County’s Day of Caring on August 9th, 2019. This is the largest single-day volunteer event across Northwest Indiana. Over 576 individuals volunteered to help with 68 service projects in Porter County. The volunteers could choose from activities such as building, landscaping, painting, cleaning, hosting collect drives, giving blood, taking kids fishing, and more. Lindsay and her team worked on a landscaping project for Recovery Connection located in Valparaiso. They spent a busy day of trimming trees, pulling weeds, planting flowers, and cleaning up the parking lot. Thank you United Way of Porter County for organizing a great day to help our community.  Lindsay, thank you for helping to make a positive impact in the community, SERVPRO of Porter County is happy to have you on our team!"

Kenya Tree Planting Initiative

The SERVPRO of Porter County Tree has just been planted on June 27, 2019, in Kenya. Though it may be only one of several million, it makes a difference to the well-being of the country and the Planet. We participate from Indiana with a missionary group that works with local schools and officials in this worthy reforestation initiative. We are humbled and honored to be associated with this effort. Our team hopes to "branch out" in the coming years to assist our neighbors here at home and those further away.

Rebuilding Fort LaPLAYporte

When you raise a family in La Porte County, most parents or grandparents know how amazing Fort LaPLAYporte is for younger kids. This past week, the rebuild for this playground started. The work crews were scheduled all week from early morning till 8:30 pm every day. The weather was not cooperative with the rebuild and caused some setbacks, but the community stepped up in a huge way working in rain and mud. SERVPRO of LaPorte and Porter County Sales and Marketing Manager, Jenni Alexander volunteered her time Friday evening to help with the community project. She stated that after all the priceless memories made a Fort LaPLAYporte with her family, she wanted to help make sure that other families could build their own memories there. She said that it was a great experience and she was glad to be a part of the rebuild!

SERVPRO Team Members Play Santa's Helpers

When SERVPRO of Porter County learned about a top secret mission that several local teachers were planning to create a Christmas miracle for a family, they sprang into action.  They purchased food and toys and even wrapped the gifts.  

One of the teachers posted this message on her social media:

“When Jenni (the SERVPRO of LaPorte and Porter County Marketing Representative) was told of this family, she went back and told the angels at SERVPRO she wanted to help this family, they graciously agreed and what happened next was nothing short of a miracle.  She called me THIS MORNING to find out the details.  For them, it was no problem that I was taking the stuff to the family TODAY.  Can you believe, they shopped, wrapped and delivered the Christmas of dreams for this family in one day! “

SERVPRO of Porter County is a proud member of the community and is honored to participate in this mission.
