When businesses experience success in their local communities, this is due in part to their customers choosing and recommending their services. Many successful businesses express their gratitude to their communities by giving back and sponsoring local charity events. ServiceMaster 24 Hour of Largo, FL sponsors many local charity events throughout the year to help raise money for various causes and institutions. For years, ServiceMaster 24 Hour has sponsored annual events including various parades and golf tournaments in the Tampa, FL area, and in 2016 they sponsored the “Head for the Hills” 5K race in Lakeland, FL for the first time. The following are just a couple of the highlights of the charity events sponsored by ServiceMaster 24 Hour in 2016.
“Head for the Hills” 5K Run
The “Head for the Hills” 5K run held its inaugural race on December 3, 2016 with ServiceMaster 24 Hour as its major title sponsor. This particular 5K run is unique because the course for the race runs over the scenic hills of Lakeland, FL to provide a real physical challenge for the runners. All proceeds collected from this fundraising event were donated to the Centerpoint Church and its subsidiary ministries in Lakeland and the surrounding communities.
Tee It Up for the Troops Golf Tournament
Each year in September, ServiceMaster 24 Hour teams up with many other local businesses to sponsor the Tee It Up for the Troops golf tournament to raise money for several different charities that support U.S. servicemen and women. For the past six years, ServiceMaster 24 Hour has been the lead sponsor and they typically raise around $25,000 to distribute to the charity organizations. Several members of the ServiceMaster 24 Hour staff, who are also veterans, participate in the golf tournament along with several of their clients. The proceeds from this event are given to Support the Troops Inc., Tee it Up for the Troops Inc., Amputee Veterans of America Support Team, Homes for Heroes, and the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.
