ServiceMaster and Terminix Give Back with Virtual We Care Week 2020

This week, thousands of employees from ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: SERV), a leading provider of essential services to residential and commercial customers, will volunteer their time and energy to support community organizations across the United States as part of We Care Week 2020.

This will be the seventh year ServiceMaster and its subsidiary brands have celebrated the annual signature event, but this effort will look different from past years, as the company adapts the initiative to the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the past, ServiceMaster employees celebrated We Care Day as one day of service in local communities across the country. However, this year, ServiceMaster will dedicate an entire week to celebrate service giving more employees the opportunity to contribute to causes with personal importance, in ways that are personally important.

"ServiceMaster and Terminix both have long histories of giving back to the communities where we live and work," said Brett Ponton, chief executive officer of ServiceMaster. "Despite the challenges we are facing from the pandemic, we found a way to include our teammates from around the country. It's our people who are so passionate about giving back and dedicated to helping and supporting those in their neighborhoods."

Employees will have the opportunity to participate in the week virtually through a program called "Caring Steps." For every step that employees walk, which will be tracked via a mobile app, ServiceMaster will donate money to 20 charitable organizations. This program will allow employees to give back while serving customers, working virtually and social distancing ? and getting some great exercise in the process.

Other ways employees will be able to contribute are by volunteering on their own, being part of a Make-a-Wish reveal or providing a personal donation. Employees making donations are encouraged to donate directly to the organizations involved and all will be able to witness the Make-a-Wish reveal live via a virtual video.

"From its inception, our We Care event has held a special place in our employees' hearts and minds. It has served to help connect our teammates in the communities where they live and work with organizations supporting those communities across the country," said Velvet Graham, senior director of Events, Community Relations and Culture & Inclusion at ServiceMaster. "Now, more than ever, we must continue that legacy of community and inclusion of organizations that not only our employees are passionate about, but that help to further the advancement of issues of poverty, hunger, mental wellness, social injustice, homelessness, and education."

Among the national organizations are Habitat for Humanity, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and Color of Change. Employees will also be partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant a child's wish. Among the local community partners benefiting from We Care Week are LeBonheur Children's Hospital, the Mid-South Food Bank, and the National Civil Rights Museum.

The entire list of partners for We Care Week 2020 includes:
