Tyler DeVries - 5 Year Anniversary

Ryan Sauser: Facility Services Manager

December 14th is a very special day this year, as it marks the 5-year anniversary of Tyler Devries as the Contract Compliance Manager for the Southeast Metro. 

When I was hired on as the FSM for Southeast Metro 2 ½ years ago, I was told great things about Tyler and what to expect.  Those words were nothing short of the truth. 
 
Tyler has been a great asset to City Wide over the years.  He has helped immensely in meeting and exceeding customer expectations, and in his working relationships with the crews in the facilities that we service.  His knowledge of our industry continues to grow and he continues to be a great role model for up and coming Contract Compliance Managers.

Tyler is a huge contributor to this territory and one of the major reasons we won the prestigious FSM/CCM of the year award amongst all other City Wide franchises in the country in 2018.  It will be neck-and-neck in 2019 for that same award once again.


Tyler, we truly appreciate all that you do for the team here at City Wide!

Feed My Starving Children

Shelly Grohovsky: Bookkeeper

This week, our team volunteered at Feed My Starving Children.  Founded in 1987, Feed My Starving Children is a non-profit organization that works to provide nutritionally complete meals specifically formulated for malnourished children around the world.  FMSC offers its volunteers a one-of-a-kind experience.  As a team, we hand-packed rice, soy, dried vegetables and a nutritionally complete blend of vitamins and minerals into bags, which we sealed and boxed so they could be shipped out to the neediest children around the world.  Five people in our group volunteered to be runners, which involved keeping each station’s ingredients stocked for packing.  The remainder of us were packers, which involved the actual packing of the food.  Of course, with our competitive nature, we decide to break off into two teams and compete to see who could pack the most boxes of food.  It was a tight running!  Team 1 packed 16 boxes and team 2 packed 15 boxes.  As a whole, with the other groups that volunteered that day, we managed to pack nearly 200 boxes of food in our two-hour packing shift, feeding 107 children for an entire year!  It is truly the most amazing and rewarding feeling to know how much of an impact we made in children’s’ lives in just two hours of our time!  If you’re looking for a great way to give back, I would highly recommend volunteering for FMSC, where you can experience first-hand what it’s like to make a substantial difference in others’ lives!
