PROVO, Utah – Aptive Environmental Pest Control announced that it will donate $ 275,000 to the United Nations Foundation’s “Nothing but Nets” charity in 2020 on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, an additional $ 50,000 from its community of customers and sales reps, bringing the potential donation to nearly $ 400,000.
The United Nations “Nothing But Nets” is the world’s largest grassroots campaign sending insecticide-treated mosquito nets to regions of the world afflicted by malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Every year since 2016, Aptive has been bringing its community together to stop the spread of malaria, transmitted by a simple mosquito bite, by contributing over $ 912,000 to the campaign and helping to protect nearly 285,000 lives.
The aptive Environmental Sales Team Leader Jonathan Watrous has been leading the “Nothing but Nets” donation program in the sales team for four years. Says Watrous, “What I love about working for Aptive is being part of a company that not only looks after its people, but also supports those in need. It’s a great feeling to know that the work we do every day changes not only the lives and homes of the families we serve, but also those of the whole world. “
Giving back is one of Aptive’s six pillars of business and has always been a priority for the pest control company. From friendly fundraising competitions between in-house teams to investing in software that enables point-of-sale donations to be accepted, Aptive is committed to being responsible in every aspect of its business. In 2020 alone, the Aptive community donated well over $ 1 million to organizations it believes in, such as Operation Underground Railroad and the Saminay El Legado School in Ecuador, in addition to supporting the Nothing But Nets “.
“At Aptive, giving back is part of our DNA, and we pride ourselves on putting“ Nothing but Networks ”at the heart of our efforts every year,” said Vess Pearson, CEO of Aptive Environmental Make A Big Impact, And We See in collaboration with ‘Nothing But Nets’ right before our eyes. As the holidays approach, we encourage others to spread generosity – big or small – in their communities and beyond, because this is where change begins. “
