Angela Turney discusses her work on behalf of ServPro and the Fort Gibson Chamber of Commerce.
"I’ve had jobs before where you sit behind a desk, or you walk into an office and you do your paperwork and go home at the end of the day. I’ve had other jobs where you were a part of educating kids. When I went to work for ServPro, I knew I wanted to be a part of something bigger than sitting behind a desk. I wanted to be a positive influence on our community — loving on our community."
WHY IT’S IMPORTANT:
"I think it’s believing in where you live. Believing that you make it better, that there’s room to grow — that it’s worth it. People can get stuck on the negative, but what are they doing to bring light to the world? If you don’t like something, change it. Be the smile — do something to make it better."
HOW CAN YOU HELP:
"I would say contact the Chamber of Commerce and ask them “where can I help? What can I do?” There’s always something that can be done, like setting up or cleanup. I would say contact the person you see holding events."
