The program, which starts May 18, 2020, consists of donating a portion of their sales to the local food banks for every new ongoing service agreement with ABC Home & Commercial Services.
“Our reasoning is simple: to help because we can.” Bobby Jenkins, owner of ABC, said. “We have been fortunate to keep our business running throughout COVID-19, and we feel we owe our community the continued support and help during this uncertain time. We want to help in a bigger way than we have in the past, which is why we are donating $20 for every new ongoing service agreement signed with ABC.”
ABC’s new ongoing service agreements range from annual pest control agreements to weekly pool cleanings to maintenance on AC systems to mowing and fertilizing of yards. “Our goal is to contribute approximately $50,000 over the next few weeks as we start this program. We hope to reach the goal and are able to help the local food banks ensure families have food,” says Jenkins.
ABC has offices and satellite offices in Austin, Bastrop, Bryan/College Station, Corpus Christi, Georgetown, Marble Falls, San Antonio, San Marcos, and Temple/Belton and will be donating to The Central Texas Food Bank, Brazos Valley Food Bank, Coastal Bend Food Bank, and the San Antonio Food Bank as well as the food pantries that operate in conjunction with the food banks.
“The increased demand for our services brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic has stretched our resources to the limit,” said Derrick Chubbs, president and CEO of the Central Texas Food Bank. “This program from our friends at ABC Home & Commercial Services demonstrates the value of a truly caring community during these challenging times. Thank you, ABC. For each of these $20 donations, we’ll be able to provide 80 meals to our neighbors in need.”
