CLIFTON PARK, N.Y -Thomas Pest Services recently assisted a not-for-profit agency with a pest problem. The Open Door Mission located in Glens Falls, N.Y., needed advice and was thrilled when Thomas Pest Services immediately came to the facility to offer their expertise.
 
Thomas Pest Services is committed to protecting the local community against pests. Pests carry many diseases that can threaten the community and destroy property. "Most people tend to think of pest management in terms of ants, roaches and fleas, but the importance is much broader including food and health protection," said Sarah Thomas, vice president of Thomas Pest Services.
 
The Open Door is a Christian Ministry dedicated to reaching out and serving the needs of the homeless and unfortunate of our community regardless of race, color, creed or sexual orientation. The Open Door serves more than 5,000 meals each month, including on-site meals, distributed bagged lunches, and distributed ready-to-eat meals, distribution of gleaned and other food items to over 30 agencies and approximately 800 people in Warren, Washington, and Saratoga Counties. Executive Director of The Open Door, Chaplain Bruce D. Hersey said, "I am truly grateful for the work that Thomas Pest Services performed."  "Thank you for your excellent workmanship, attention to detail and friendly demeanor. Your high quality of work has gone a long way to alleviate any concerns that could possibly be attributed to pests, said Mr. Hersey"
 
"Having the opportunity to assist The Open Door Mission was an easy decision," said Thomas.

Thomas Pest Services granted The Open Door a free year of pest management services. "As a local business, it is our responsibility to give back to the community. We are fortunate to have facilities like The Open Door in our community and are thrilled to be affiliated with them."
