COLLINS GIVES BACK!
Collins Cares about the community and believes in the importance of giving back to nonprofits who do so much for the people who live in our communities.
We were happy to sponsor the American Cancer Society Moonlight Gala this past weekend and help them achieve their fundraising goal.
JUST FOR FUN!
Last month, we celebrated Ice Cream Day with a fun ice cream social. Jorge brought his own extras to make a super special sundae.
We are aware that every branch is being affected by the fires. We all need to take extra precaution in the field and personally.
The devastating video below is from our Fresno office manager, Melanee Euless. Her nephew was dispatched on July 27th to the Carr fire in Redding, CA. All his crew could do the first night was lifesaving of victims, it was the priority. He has been on the fire lines ever since with his crew from the Bay Area station. He and his crew will potentially get a couple days off but are already being told they could go back to the Carr or Mendocino fire.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the fires, our Collins families, our clients, the first responders, and our field working hard each day through this.
