Last week at Bug Busters’ Annual Company Wide Training Meeting, they ended the day making 144 Winter Homeless Care Packages. The zip locked bag packages contained; gloves, socks, bandaids, chapstick, blanket, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, nail clippers, hair brush, soap, and more. The team then donated these 144 winter care kits to The Atlanta Mission. The corporate social responsibility of this event goes straight to the core fundamentals and mission of the company to give back to the community.
