Ambius employees in the U.S. and Canada created care packages for COVID-19 front-line workers as part of the company’s Hometown Heroes program.

More than 108 teams and districts participated in the Hometown Heroes program, choosing organizations in their own communities to give back to. The teams filled care packages, some of which included lunch for staff and homemade cards from the children of Ambius employees for health care professionals, senior care facility workers and first responders.

“We have seen extraordinary examples of bravery and sacrifice from health care and first responders on the front line of this pandemic,” said John Myers, Rentokil president and CEO, the parent company of Ambius. “Our colleagues have expressed the desire to support our local communities, and it’s our responsibility to give back. I’m proud of our colleagues’ commitment to their communities and enhancing the lives of those who are giving so much during this time.”

The teams helped more than 8,100 people on the front lines all across the country. A team in the Boston area set up a station at Boston Medical Center to give out more than 600 plants to health care professionals. The team also purchased items on the wishlist of Health Care for the Homeless to make sure the organization was prepared for the summer rush. Another team chose the Jackson Ridge Rehabilitation Center in Fulton, Ohio, to provide plants and care packages for the staff members at a senior care center.

Mike Knisely, district manager at Ambius, and his team in Knoxville, Tenn., provided ponytail palms and food for the staff of a senior care facility as a thank you for their hard work and effort during the pandemic.

“The Hometown Heroes program was gratifying and fun to be part of,” said Knisely. “We chose Autumn Care in Knoxville, Tenn., as our Hometown Heroes (recipient). The organization is a senior living community that specializes in memory care, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. They provide an amazing service to our community, and we’ve witnessed firsthand how patient and sincere the staff members are with their residents. It’s an honor to be able to give back and serve them, and I’m extremely proud of our team for the job they did.”
