In a previous blog post, we reminded you that each year the third week of June is declared National Mosquito Control Awareness Week by the American Mosquito Control Association. The purpose of this week is to raise awareness of the importance of mosquito control in our country, to educate people on the risks of mosquito-borne diseases and to help bring to light solutions for managing the problems we’re faced with during the spring and summer months where mosquitoes are out and about.
This year for Mosquito Control Awareness Week, Mosquito Joe locations across the country partnered with local blood donation centers for our Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign. For every new customer that signed up for a mosquito treatment service from Mosquito Joe during Mosquito Control Awareness Week, we donated 10% of the sale to local blood donation centers. Around the Corporate Office, we also took the opportunity to go donate blood ourselves (see picture above).
We love taking this opportunity each year to support our communities in a new way, to Beat the Bloodsuckers during Mosquito Control Awareness Week. We want to say thank you to all the blood donation centers who partnered with us this year. Thanks to the best customers in the world, Mosquito Joe was able to donate over $2,000 in just one week to these centers across the country to help with the amazing work they do each and every day. Thank you to our customers for helping make Mosquito Control Awareness Week 2014 such a memorable one and for your continued support of Mosquito Joe. And of course, thank you to all of our wonderful franchisees who participated in this special campaign with us and helped to make a difference in their community during Mosquito Control Awareness Week as well as throughout the spring and summer months. As our company continues to grow, we look forward to making an even bigger difference in 2015.
