V O L U M E 5 1 I S S U E 1 F E B R U A R Y 2 0 1 8 91 The Ibarra Family: Luz, Adrian, Edwardo, The McAlear Group volunteers spent each day at the Ibarra home replac- ing insulation, drywall, and clean- ing, making the house feel more like home again. "There are no words to appreciate what you guys are doing here," Ibarra said "It makes you have to be hum- ble and appreciate where your next meal is coming from," she added. "The Ibarra's are going to be impact- ed by this for eternity," said Andrew Martinez, Territory Sales Manager for Draincables Direct. Martinez lives and works in the Hous- ton area and saw first-hand the dam- age and devastation caused. A customer of Martinez, Emet Ra- mos of Emet's Plumbing was also affected by flooding, having about 16 inches of water in his shop. Ramos hired a contractor to help in the repairs, but the process has been slow. The McAlear Group volunteers were able to help Ramos put in new insulation. Ramos was grateful for the assis - tance from The McAlear Group and plans to pay it forward. "Just like we are getting help, we are also helping other people that were really affected in their homes," Ramos said. 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 Ser- vice Spring Corp, Chris Bagrowski visited six Service Spring customers affected by the hurricane. There are no words to appreciate what you guys are doing here - Sara Ibarra "The dealers were overwhelmed that we took the time to come down and visit them. They truly appreciated our assistance and the work we completed for their community," McManus said. Overall, The McAlear Group and Experience Mission volunteers were able to get a lot accomplished for both the Ibarra family and customers of Service Spring Corp and Draincables Direct. "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.
