DVBA Christmas Party
Hilton Ballroom for xmas party
For SERVPRO of Palm Springs we love the holidays, it allows us to engage more with our clients on a personal level. A majority of our interactions can be in response to emergency restoration situations, but during the holidays we can actually get together for the more positive reasons.
In this shot we are attending the Desert Valley Builders association annual Christmas party at the Hilton in Palm Springs. The evening’s festivities where capped off by a rousing recital by Dueling pianos, they are as the name implies, Dueling pianos that really get the crowd involved with tons of call and repeat and blasting out the oldies.
We always find that these events can be key to a successful partnership in the coming year, they really increase the personal connection...and they are really fun.
Leadership Coachella Valley, Class 2016
Blankets for the Homeless
At SERVPRO of Palm Springs and SERVPRO of Indian Wells we are involved in many charitable groups and actions.
In this photo we show the Coachella valley Rescue mission staff and LCV alumni. They are standing next to the class project for 2016, over 200 brand new blankets.
THE CVRM houses over 250 people each night and is always in need of basic creature comforts. Socks are the number one requested item.
At SERVPRO we feel this behavior, delivered in a genuine fashion is “What it’s all about". Some call it the givers gain, we call giving back.
In this day and age where we have so many options, make sure you choose wisely and for the right reason
What sort of world do want to help create?
We know our answer.

SERVPRO, "Like it never even Happened!"
Power lunch with Cathedral City Chamber of commerce
Color Guard at The Power luncheon with Cathedral City
Here at SERVPRO of Palm Springs and SERVPRO Indian Wells,We believe in supporting our community. Thats why we volunteer and lend a hand. One of the ways we get involved is with the Cathedral City Chamber of Commerce Ambassador committee. For the last several years we have participated in a variety of events, committing Time, Talent and Treasure. Not only do you get to step-up and show your character, you also get the opportunity to meet a lot of the influential people in your area. These relationships grow into so much more than just business contacts, they create the roots that connect to your community. We feel that the gesture of giving has signifigant value.
In this picture we showcase the Color Guard from Cathedral City High School.
Indio Chamber staff and Homemade SERVPRO cookies
At SERVPRO of Palm Springs and SERVPRO of Indian wells; For Several years, our team has gotten together on the holidays to show the valley how we are different.
We bake and assemble over 1200(it grows each year) cookies to hand out to business partners and fellow vendors.
The funnest part of the project is delivering the items to all of our contacts. We are spread out through a very large service area, but it feels like a small community; this means that people talk. We hope they share the joy with there staff...I hear some even makes it home to family.
Its important to give and share with all aspets of the Service industry. We cant do it alone, so why should we celebrate alone.
Give until it hurts and wake-up again, and do it all over.
Golfing with Guys
Power Golfing with Some Power Players
Here in the Coachella valley, Golf is more than just a 'great way to ruin a good walk'. Its a way for folks to relax and form stronger bonds over some friendly competition. How a person plays the game, can be very telling.
The golf tourney was held at the Terra Lago course in North Indio, we were able to set-up a vendor booth and offer refreshments to the players.
We tend to set-up at several tourneys throughout the year, so keep your eyes peeled for the Big Green tent with the Orange house; we always give the coolest stuff.
Here we have Assmebly member Eduardo Garcia and the Mayor of Coachella Steven Hernandez. Great Guys, out having a well deserved break.
SERVPRO, always there to share the love. "Like it never even happend"
Whats in your Kitchen?!?
Pizza and Kiwanis, Community involvement at its best.
SERVPRO of Palm Springs and SERVPRO of indian wells is all about giving back, from the multiple charities we donate to; and to all the fun events we lend a hand at - 'Givers Gain' is our constant mantra.
The 'Slice of La Quinta' annual pizza contest, is an event for the City of La quinta'. Normally it is for local restaurants...But, We took home the prize for "Best Crust".
Here is our marketing manager (Chris Bennett on the right) with a few pizza pies and a Kiwanis pamphlet.
We thank our local La quinta Costco, they where nice enough to donate the (25) pizza boxes that we needed.
This is a really fun event, and if your like our marketing manager - there is never a 'Bad Pizza'.
Especially when its in support of your city.
Once the work is done, its time for fun.
CET- Career Fair
Fisrt impressions are Key; meeting some great people from the community.
SERVPRO is always looking for a few good people to help out with on our our mission. We are especially impressed by people who seek out education and training. Like any good employer we believe that that interdependence is the format for an effective Team.
Here we are at a Career fair for some students at the Center for Employment Training. We conducted multiple initial interviews for Production and Administrative positons. We then setup secondary interviews at our facility.
Go out and meet your potetial employees, not all resumes reflect the candidate, Get eyes on them and ask questions. We all shine in different ways.
We have been hiring from CET for several years and find the quality of their candidates to be much better than other hiring streams. This is a testament to the staff which takes a very old-fashioned approach to complete and throrough training.
Hire for attitude , Train for aptitude
