"We are one of the country's largest service providers and we strongly
believe in caring for the communities we serve," said Nik Varty, chief
executive officer of ServiceMaster. "We serve because we care. Whether
it is delivering outstanding customer service or volunteering in our
communities, this commitment is just part of our DNA."

We Care Day has grown significantly in its first five years, starting
with just a few hundred employees in 2013 working on a dozen projects.
The signature event has also been recognized by public officials and
citizenship organizations as a prominent example of how corporate
citizenship efforts bolster employee engagement and community support.

"We Care Day is about being a part of something special. It's one of the
reasons ServiceMaster is a great place to work and it's at the heart of
everything we do," said Velvet Graham, senior director of events,
community relations and diversity and inclusion. "We celebrate our
employees' passion for serving others and their dedication to our
communities across the country."

The day's work is expected to deliver more than 12,000 volunteer hours
in the communities where employees live and work. ServiceMaster
employees will volunteer in a variety of activities, which include
beautifying local neighborhoods, preparing meals for the homeless, and
partnering with Make-A-Wish Mid-South to grant a child's wish to go to
Disney World.
