Participate in Safe + Sound Week!

Join A1 Orange as a participant in Safe + Sound Week, August 13-19, an OSHA Alliance Program supported by the IWCA (International Window Cleaning Association.) According to OSHA, this is “a nationwide event to raise awareness and understanding of the value of safety and health programs that include management leadership, worker participation, and a systematic approach to finding and fixing hazards in workplaces.”

Whether your company begins your planning or conducts your safety-enhancing activities during this week, OSHA reminds us that “successful safety and health programs can proactively identify and manage workplace hazards before they cause injury or illness, improving sustainability and the bottom line.” We challenge you and your company to join A1 Orange in making your property and business more Safe + Sound!

BBQ to Benefit District 5 Students!

A1 Orange is pleased to invite you to participate in a back-to-school BBQ dinner/fundraiser on Saturday, June 30, 1-3 pm, in support of Commissioner Regina Hill’s District 5 “Back-to-School Celebration!” John Burrell, owner of Johnny’s Fillin Station and Johnny’s The Other Side, is donating most of the proceeds from a BBQ dinner for 100 people, to be held at the fun, open-air restaurant, “The Other Side,” at 2631 S. Ferncreek Road (at the intersection of Michigan and Ferncreek, Orlando). There is even a game area for kids to have fun!

Tickets for the BBQ, featuring ribs, pulled pork, chicken, potato salad, cornbread, and coleslaw are $20 per person. For children with littler appetites, the children’s menu is also available for ordering with kid-size prices. A1 Orange will throw in a beer, soda or iced-tea beverage ticket for any donation of cash and/or socks and underwear on that day.

As part of the “Back-to-School Celebration,” area sports’ teams, businesses and the community come together to help raise money so that students in her district will get that happy, back-to-school feeling that so many of us felt with our new school clothing and school supplies. This is the 3rd year that A1 Orange has participated, collecting socks and underwear as part of this effort.

If you would like to reserve tickets for this or make a donation, please email Brenda with your requests. Or you can mail donations to:  A1 Orange Exterior Building Services, PO Box 555704, Orlando, FL 32855. Attn:  District 5 BTS.




Back-to-School Drive for District 5!

Remember how exciting it was to get ready for the new school year, when back-to-school meant new clothes, socks, underwear, new school supplies and a backpack?

For the past few years, Orlando District 5 Commissioner Regina Hill has organized a back-to-school drive to help students get that excited “bounce in their step,” when they get ready to return to school in August. This is the 3rd year A1 Orange has worked with Commissioner Hill to provide socks and underwear for district students.

A1 Orange will match up to $2500 in donations! We’re off to a great start with $800 already donated by A1 friends. A1 Orange shops for bulk, quality items, but you also organize a sock and underwear drive in your office, or neighborhood and drop off your donations of children’s socks and underwear in our “Back to School” collection box at the A1 Orange office at 1345 Long Street, Orlando, 9 am—4:30 pm. Checks may be dropped off to our office or mailed to: PO Box 555704,   Orlando, FL, 32855.

Our donation deadline is Wednesday, July 18 this year. Together we can make back-to-school brighter for these students! If you have any questions, contact Brenda Dost at the A1 Orange office at 1-800-874-6207 or by email,
