Brokate Janitorial Sets $25,000 Donation Goal for 2014
SPRINGFIELD, MO — As a local family-owned business, Brokate Janitorial has always looked for ways to give back to the Ozark communities it serves. Over the years, the company has been active in many local fundraisers and worked with local organizations to help with their cleaning needs. Like many individuals and businesses, Brokate Janitorial pitched in when it was financially able to, and was for a cause they believed in.
In 2013, Cheyne Brokate, vice president of operations, came up with an idea to expand on how the company approached charitable giving. "I felt it was time our company added charitable giving to our annual goals and budgeting. We felt strongly about the giving we did, and always struggled with deciding how much and how often to give."
After going over the numbers and projections for 2014, the company decided on $25,000 in donated services and cash donations. Before the initiative had even launched, Cheyne inked an agreement to provide free year-round janitorial services to the Salvation Army of Branson. This agreement puts Brokate Janitorial $5,000 closer towards reaching or beating their goal.
"If you know of a great charity / local non-profit group that needs help with some floor waxing, carpet cleaning or office cleaning service, please have them give us a call. There are so many great organizations we have yet to work with, and hope to spread our giving out throughout the year. We might not be able to help them all, but we’ll sure do what we can."
The company plans to track the results all year long on it’s website www.brokatejanitorial.com. For more information on how to apply, or to get more information you can contact Brokate Janitorial at their Branson office (417) 338-4809 or their Springfield office (417) 885-9000.
