Mosquito Joe Launches Eighth Annual Beat the Bloodsuckers Campaign in Honor of Mosquito Control Awareness Week
Owners Nationwide will Work with Non-Profits Nothing But Nets or Local Blood Banks June 21-27.
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Mosquito Joe, a Neighborly company, and one of the nation’s leading mosquito control companies, has launched its annual philanthropic campaign. The eighth annual Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign will take place June 21-27, 2020, in honor of the American Mosquito Control Association’s Mosquito Control Awareness Week.
Across 335 locations, participating Mosquito Joe franchise locations will give back to their communities in one of two ways:
- Franchise owners who choose to work with Nothing But Nets will donate $10 for every new customer serviced during Mosquito Control Awareness Week. This donation sends two life-saving mosquito nets to those who live at risk of contracting malaria in areas such as sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
- Franchise owners who choose to work with the American Red Cross or a local blood bank will donate 10 percent of new customer sales during Mosquito Control Awareness Week to the respective organization.
Since 2013, Mosquito Joe franchise owners have collectively donated more than $200,000 in charitable giving through the Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign. Over the four years of Mosquito Joe’s partnership with Nothing But Nets, the generosity of the Mosquito Joe community has raised more than $105,000 and provided over 29,400 insecticide-treated mosquito nets to families in need.
“Every year our franchise owners look forward to Mosquito Control Awareness Week to rally together to raise awareness and funds that benefit our domestic and global communities,” said Mosquito Joe President, Lou Schager. “With families spending time in their homes now more than ever, we are passionate about making sure each home’s outdoor space is itch-free and fun for everyone. Through Mosquito Control Awareness Week, we are able to educate our customers on the real dangers of mosquitoes and how they can protect themselves and their families.”
