Aptive Environmental Pest Control, based in Provo, Utah, will donate at least $ 275,000 in 2020 to the United Nations Foundation’s “Nothing but Nets” campaign. To celebrate both Malaria Awareness Month in November and Giving Tuesday in December, Aptive is committed to raising funds on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, to an additional $ 50,000 from its community of customers and sales reps, making this a great one Donation potential increased to nearly $ 400,000.
The United Nations “Nothing But Nets” campaign sends insecticide-treated bed nets to regions of the world that are infested with malaria by mosquitoes. Since 2016, Aptive has brought its community together every year to stop the spread of malaria, which is transmitted through a simple mosquito bite. Aptive contributed over $ 912,000 to the campaign and saved nearly 285,000 lives, according to a press release.
Jonathan Watrous, head of the Aptive Environmental Sales Team, has been leading the “Nothing But Nets” donation program in the sales team for four years.
“What I love about working at Aptive is being part of a company that not only looks after its employees, but also supports those in need,” Watrous said in the press release. “It’s a great feeling to know that the work we do every day changes the lives and homes of the families we serve as well as those around the world.”
Aptive CEO Vess Pearson agreed.
“We believe that a few small acts of kindness can make a big impact, and we’re seeing them right before our eyes in partnership with Nothing But Nets,” Pearson said in the press release. “As the holidays approach, we encourage others to bring generosity – big and small – to their communities and beyond, because this is where change begins.”
