| October 17, 2011

TWINSBURG, OH and NEW YORK — With the help of New York-based Bug Off Pest Control Center, the team at J.T. Eaton recently donated several cases of glue boards to the Northern Manhattan Improvement Corp., a non-profit organization. NMIC’s mission is to “serve as a catalyst for positive change in the lives of the people in our community on their paths to secure, violence-free and prosperous futures.”

“We had a surplus of glue board pallets, and wanted to do something through our Stanley Z. Baker Foundation,” said Dale Baker, grandson of the Foundation’s namesake and vice president of the family-owned pest management product manufacturer. “We knew that a call to Andy Linares would bring us the answer.”

"When the J.T. Eaton team called and asked me if I knew of a deserving organization for a product donation, I thought of NMIC right away," recalls Linares, who is president of Bug Off Pest Control Center. "With New York City's high rodent population, the glue boards have made a world of difference in the level of comfort for these families and their homes."

Barbara Lowry, NMIC’s executive director, echoes the sentiment. “We’re very happy to distribute the donation of glueboards to our clients, tenant associations and our weatherization program buildings. We appreciate the generosity and kindness of both Bug Off and J.T. Eaton.”
