In a heartening display of corporate citizenship and community resilience, Paul Davis Restoration pledged a generous donation of $500,000 to the American Red Cross’ Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP) in January of this year. This proactive contribution underscores the company’s unwavering commitment to ensuring that the Red Cross is equipped to respond to disasters of any scale across the United States.

The ADGP, powered by forward-thinking members like Paul Davis Restoration, enables the Red Cross to maintain a robust infrastructure, train volunteers, and harness innovative technology and resources. These critical elements are vital for delivering timely relief and support to those affected by disasters.

Anne McKeough, Chief Development Officer at the American Red Cross, expressed profound gratitude for the donation: “Paul Davis Restoration’s contribution is a beacon of hope. It empowers us to fortify our capabilities and stand ready to assist individuals during their most challenging times.”

Rich Wilson, President and CEO of Paul Davis Restoration, shared the sentiment: “Our collaboration with the American Red Cross is more than a sponsorship; it’s a shared mission to provide extraordinary care in times of need. We’re proud to align with an organization that mirrors our dedication to service.”

In March, Paul Davis Restoration furthered its commitment by participating in the Red Cross’ Sound The Alarm program. Local offices joined forces with firefighters and Red Cross chapters to install life-saving smoke alarms in urban homes, enhancing community safety. The event was a success for so many communities.

The spirit of giving extends beyond financial aid, as Paul Davis Restoration encourages its nationwide network to participate in the Red Cross’ Annual Blood Drive. This initiative addresses the critical summer blood shortages and exemplifies the company’s culture of service.

To date, Paul Davis Restoration’s efforts have yielded impressive results:

  • 80 blood donations from team members since the year’s start.
  • 38 donors at the company’s National Conference in April, providing life-saving blood for 114 individuals.
  • A personal commitment from CEO Rich Wilson to maximize his blood donations throughout the year.
  • Testimonials from donors within the Paul Davis Restoration family reveal a shared passion for making a difference:
  • Rich Wilson emphasizes the company’s vision aligns perfectly with the Red Cross, highlighting the importance of supporting others in their time of need.
  • Louise Spilkin, a first-time donor, praises the ARC’s efficient process and expresses newfound pride in contributing to life-saving efforts.
  • Doug Beimfohr and Drew Anderson, both owners of Paul Davis Restoration franchises, reflect on the profound impact of donating blood and the joy of serving the community.
