Community Germantown Philadelphia - Did You Know ? Germantown Philadelphia

Germantown is an area in Northwest Philadelphia. Founded by German Quaker and Mennonite families in 1683 as an independent borough, it was absorbed into Philadelphia in 1854. The area, which is about six miles northwest from the city center, now consists of two neighborhoods: 'Germantown' and 'East Germantown'.

Germantown has played a significant role in American history; it was the birthplace of the American antislavery movement, the site of a Revolutionary War battle, the temporary residence of George Washington, the location of the first bank of the United States, and the residence of many notable politicians, scholars, artists, and social activists.

Today the area remains rich in historic sites and buildings from the colonial era, some of which are open to the public.

SERVPRO Welcomes a NEW Rita's in Quakertown, PA!

5/21/2019 (Permalink)

Today, SERVPRO attended a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Rita's Italian Ice & Frozen Custard, located at the intersection of 6th and West Broad Streets (534 W. Broad Street, to be exact).

The new store is sitting on a prime location, fixed in the center of a very rich, thriving area in Quakertown. Members of our marketing team, Rob and Christina, were greeted by welcoming faces and a warm ceremony, followed by delicious Rita's water-ice.

It is important to welcome new businesses into the community with open arms, for embracing new business owners, who are not too familiar with the area, goes a long way.

With that being said, we would like to wish everyone at the Rita's in Quakertown nothing but the best in the future!

On May 9th, SERVPRO was present at CAI’s 2019 Annual Conference and Expo at Valley Forge Casino in King of Prussia, PA, as we sponsored the Wi-Fi for the entire day!

The theme for this year’s expo was board games, which ultimately ties into CAI’s PULSE Committee’s efforts in supporting the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). They accepted donations like new board games, card games, craft supplies, or toys, on behalf of CHOP at their PULSE ♥ KIDS table.

SERVPRO also exhibited in addition to our sponsorship, so if you were at this exciting event, we were at our booth (713), chatting with patrons and giving out some awesome SERVPRO gear! 

Our exhibit was filled with happy expo-goers, as they utilized out Putterball game to pass the time!

On Saturday, March 27, SERVPRO of Germantown participated at the community event, Convoy of Hope, which was held at Hunting Park in Philadelphia!

SERVPRO provided a resting area under our tent for First Responders and other patrons to relax during the day’s festivities, as well as several generators to power the event, around 80 cases of specially branded, SERVPRO water, and dumpsters/trashcans that were distributed throughout the park for the Convoy!

This event was eye opening for our staff, as thousands of people funneled in throughout the course of the day to take advantage of the opportunities the Convoy of Hope had to offer. Patrons had access to FREE clothes, shoes, food, haircuts, breast cancer screenings, a job search tent, and much more!

SERVPRO is extremely humbled to have partnered with an international, humanitarian-relief organization in order to give back to the community; we are grateful to have assisted them and applaud them for their driving passion to feed the world through children’s feeding initiatives, community outreach, and disaster response.

SERVPRO of Germantown: Citizen's Police Academy Graduates!

4/26/2019 (Permalink)

On Tuesday, April 23rd, our employees, Robyn M Colajezzi and Rob D'Emilio Jr., graduated from Quakertown Police Department’s, Citizen’s Police Academy.

Over the course of 8 weeks, students gained knowledge of: the police department’s K9 Unit and Special Response Team, self-defense tactics, firearms training, and much more, before shooting pistols at the police department’s firing range.

The culmination of the academy was bittersweet, for the friendships made and lessons learned will always be a constant reminder of the great experiences we’ve had while enrolled in this “fraternity”, as Chief Scott McElree called it at the graduation ceremony.

SERVPRO of Germantown would like to thank the Quakertown Police Department for allowing our staff to take part in the academy, as well as Chief Scott McElree and Sgt. Steven Stoneback for offering this wonderful opportunity to the public.

We highly suggest registering for next year’s academy — we’ll see you there!
