Clean-up with a Heart
When the general manager of three locally owned SERVPRO businesses saw the vandalism done to the Lincoln Statue in downtown Spokane on Thanksgiving, he was angry. Then Jess Hockett turned his frustration into action and together with the business owners offered to clean up the red paint mess at no charge. Hockett contacted City leaders and went to work the day after Thanksgiving.

“We love the community and love being part of the community. This just felt like the right thing to do,” Hockett said.
