In Honor of National Service Day

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King the United States held a National Day of Service on January 18, 2021. The International Franchise Association (IFA) and YESCO encouraged participation by offering an act of kindness or service to a customer, the community, or an employee.

"Often the small acts of service mean more than the grand ones.  Talk with your team and come up with a way to spread the brightness the YESCO family shares," was the instruction given by Josh Young, president YESCO Franchising.

YESCO Greenville (South Carolina) reached out to Haven of Rest to see if the ministry had any needs. The recovery program is a bible-based charity designed to rescue, restore, and release men and women facing life-dominating problems related to addictions and homelessness.

YESCO was asked to repair a non-functioning light on a flag pole at the mission's housing campus. Shane Hazel, a technician, was able to locate the underground power supply, install a LED flood light and illuminate the American flag.

"The employees are grateful to be able to give back to an organization that has and continues to help many individuals in the Upstate community." said Christina Ridgeway, president YESCO Greenville.
