INDUSTRYNEWS The McAlear Group Making a Difference From Oct. 4 thru Oct. 9, 2017, volunteers from The McAlear Group, parent company of Service Spring Corp (Maumee, OH) and Draincables Direct (Millbury, OH), traveled to Houston, Texas to assist in cleanup efforts following Hurricane Harvey. Reid organized the trip through Experience Mission, an organization specializing in planning domestic and international mission experiences and aiding in disaster relief, for himself and five fellow team members. The goal of Experience Mission is to help get people back on their feet by partnering with local families, churches, other organizations and companies, like The McAlear Group, wanting to help. Committed to making a difference, The McAlear Group was eager to help in the restoration and clean-up process. They were put in touch with the Ibarra family, whose home sustained substantial flood damage making their home unlivable. The McAlear Group volunteers spent each day at the Ibarra home replacing insulation, drywall, and cleaning, making the house feel more like home again. While volunteers were working with the Ibarra family and Ramos, Paul McManus, Director of Sales for the Service Spring Corp division, along with Territory Sales Manager at Service Spring Corp, Chris Bagrowski visited six Service Spring customers affected by the hurricane. Overall, The McAlear Group and Experience Mission volunteers were able to get a lot accomplished for both the Ibarra family and customers of Draincables Direct and Service Spring Corp. "We want to positively impact the world, and we can start with the areas we operate and have business relationships. Going out of our way to support them in this time, by physically showing up, was powerful – both for those we visited as well as for the volunteers," Reid concluded.
