It is hard to believe that I started in the cleaning industry when I was 19 and still in college. I didn’t know then that I was embarking on the biggest ride of my life! In 2015 QJS celebrated 25 years in business, in an ever-changing industry we have proudly become recognized by our peers as one of the top leading companies in the cleaning industry.
In the last 25 years, we have survived recessions, sickness, industry changes, governmental changes and added two partner companies to QJS. After each challenge, we have remained strong due to the dedication to QJS’s high standards, work ethics, values and most of all, great people!
When we discussed how we were going to celebrate this great milestone, we decided that the celebration should not be about us, but in following our company’s philosophy, it should be about serving others.
For the last 13 years, QJS has donated over 150 Christmas boxes each year through Operation Christmas Child to children that otherwise would receive nothing for Christmas. This is done in lieu of corporate gifts and has been a team effort with all our employees. Therefore, as part of the celebration, we decided to combine these two activities.
The Event was a total success!
Christmas in October was a joyful team effort involving all of QJS’ employees. We also invited the community and local businesses to help us reach our goal of 250 boxes in celebration of our 25 years in business. The day also included a BBQ, children activities, hay rides, live music and more!
QJS is proud to announce that we surpassed our goal and that we filled 336 Christmas boxes with the help of our local community.
We wish to thank each and everyone that donated items and their time to help us fill boxes and made this event a total success!
