P.E.S.T. Relief Is Coming To Town!

Here at the P.E.S.T. Relief International workshop, we have been working closely with Santa to provide comfort and relief to the orphaned, abused, and those who are at-risk. Last week, P.E.S.T. partnered with Clark Pest Remedy to make U-Hope shelter a safer place to sleep. This once infested home is now free of bedbugs, allowing residents to continue to thrive as they pursue a better life. Additionally, P.E.S.T. Responders partnered with the Boy Scouts of America for continued improvements at Abba House by renovating a screened-in-porch, installing new sheets and bedding, and painting several rooms.

While sharing your love with family and friends, become a P.E.S.T. Relief Responder and give a $10 end of the year donation to help us share the love with those who need it most. Please click the button below and contribute to a heartwarming cause this holiday season.

Georgia Partners Bring Comfort & Relief

 

Summer was busy for all of us, but we ended strong with a day of education and service. P.E.S.T. Relief International and CPCO of Georgia partnered together in the REST Initiative to bring comfort and relief to two women’s recovery centers the last weekend in August. The REST Initiative is all about making shelters and group homes a more sanitary and comfortable place to sleep so that those in need can continue to receive help and care in a safe environment. Our goal through REST is to support organizations who are the “boots on the ground” in what they do best; helping others through their programs or providing care for a child.

 

  

 

Our project began on Friday with the installation of 27 mattress encasements and ScenSci Volcano Bed Bug Detectors donated by Mattress Safe® and Bed Bug Central respectfully. CPCO enlisted their board of directors along with other volunteers to diligently encase the mattresses and place the detectors amidst the home.

 

On Saturday, P.E.S.T. Relief International partnered with CPCO and Mattress Safe, Inc. to combine education and service together in one day. The morning kicked off at 9:00 a.m. with a 2 hour HPC Bed Bug Training followed by a workday at Abba House to further the efforts of the REST Initiative.

 

    

 

The best part is that a team of 37 P.E.S.T. Relief Responders consisting of pest control operators and distributors from Georgia, North Carolina, and California joined their efforts together to make this day a total success. Exclusion repair, electrical repair, termite treatments, bed bug prevention measures, lawn care maintenance, and painting services were provided to this Christian recovery center for women who are breaking free from addiction. Many of the living areas that were old and tattered were transformed into a safe and beautiful environment for the residents. Now this is what I call EMPATHY IN ACTION!

 

  

 

I want to give special thanks to each and every one who participated to make this event a huge success:

 

Thank you also to Dianne Cornwell, Julie Fogg, Kim Noel, Sylvia Kenmuir, Karen Dial, Jorge Vallejo, Glenda Lehmberg, Gail Deluca, Home Depot, Gregory’s Paint of Johns Creek, David Cowart Tree Service, Allison Smith Company, Mattress Safe, Inc., and The Ratman Inc. for their contributions.

P.E.S.T. Relief International
 

I had the privilege of visiting Honduras with my son and a colleague to further the mission of P.E.S.T. Relief International - to provide comfort and relief to those in need.

 

Our first stop was the city of San Pedro Sula. In San Pedro Sula, we met with our partners who help us run our micro-enterprise located there. This micro-enterprise manufactures mattress protectors for the children of the orphanages in Honduras. Through this effort we are helping the ladies of Honduras break the cycle of poverty for their families as well as providing sanitary sleeping environments for the children.

 

Honduras Frinds   Micro-enterprise

 

La Ceiba was our next stop where we attended language school and worked in a local orphanage for a week. Here we faced many challenges and rewards. I did not get the memo that my teacher would not speak ANY English and there was no air conditioning to cool off from the 105 degree heat index!!

 

I was so excited to bring 120 mattress protectors to the local orphanage! My biggest mission yet. Little did I know that I was going to be involved in a much larger project!  

 

Upon our first visit, we learned that they had purchased 120 foam mattresses for the protectors we had brought. This sounded great until I learned that they asked us to cut them down to size with a machete!! Once we were able to locate some razor blades, we went to work. Much to my surprise, we combined the old mattress with the new foam and wrapped it up in our mattress protector making a functionally new mattress.

 

Cutting down mattresses   Encasing Mattresses

 

After three hot and tiring days, I became hooked on the reality of the impact I could make on the quality of these children's lives.

 

I'm hoping for partners like you to help me continue this momentum and provide sanitary living environments for orphans, those who are abused and individuals at-risk. If you would like to participate in providing new beds and protectors for orphans in Honduras as well as for various shelters here in the US, please join our efforts.
