As a Chamber of Commerce Ambassador, one of the services I provide on behalf of the Chamber is to help our members get their Chamber Directory Listing up and fully functional, fully visible. Prior to development with the Member, I perform some basic research on the Company, the Principles and the History of the company.

What I found most interesting was the level of community involvement the founders had, especially when researching businesses that were in their 2nd and 3rd generation of family ownership. They were a fixture in their community and understood the value of organizations that worked to help strengthen the community they resided and conducted business in. In other words, they believed that they not only had a vested interest in their community, but a responsibility as well.

Some of these organizations included The Rotary Club, The Kiwanis Club. their local Church, their local Masonic Lodge, and many were on the Board of these non-profit businesses within their community.

Interestingly enough, many of these companies are thriving into their 3rd Generation. The building blocks were their dedication and commitment to Community, and their legacy is a result of that work.

SERVPRO of Derry/Londonderry also believes in the commitment to Community. We are involved with a number of non-profit organizations and work on Committee's within the Town's we service. We donate time, money and service and are always available to help or advise where and when needed. Commitment, dedication, service for others, all good business traits, but also good for the soul.

Serving Our Community

The Salvation Army

Serving the community that we live and work in makes us a partner with that community. As a partner, we want the best for our community and we want to help it grow and prosper. One of the ways SERVPRO of Derry/Londonderry does this is by offering help and assistance to a number of organizations, one of them being The Salvation Army of Greater Derry.

The Salvation Army of Greater Derry provides a number of services for the Greater Derry area: Worship Services, Emergency/Disaster Service, Christmas Kettle Program, Food Pantry, Nursing Home Visitation & Church Services and After School Programs, just to name a few.

SERVPRO of Derry/Londonderry, in tandem with The Salvation Army of Greater Derry, is distributing shopping bags to businesses and organizations within the Greater Derry community, with a request to collect non-perishable food items and toiletries. These items are then distributed to those in need throughout our community. Certainly a worthy cause.

If you would like to contribute to this program, please contact our office directly for details. Every portion of your donation goes directly to those in need. Your help is greatly appreciated.
