Custodial Team Brings Its “A” Game!

Category: General — NYSID @ 8:54 pm

A Preferred Source custodial crew from The Altamont Program was recently commended for working above and beyond its usual cleaning duties during an unexpected building emergency. This crew has been on the job at the Office of General Services’ Corning Tower building – the largest single state office building from Westchester to Plattsburgh – since June 2011, where a number of prominent state government agencies are located.

Due to a flood throughout the building, the team found its customer at the NYS Department of Health overwhelmed with immediate concern for saving office equipment and files from water damage. Pitching right in, the Altamont workers moved furniture and equipment off the ground and covered things with plastic over several floors of building space, well outside the usual scope of “all in a day’s work.”

Only days later, a Department of Health spokesperson shared this recognition of a job well done: “Just want to be sure someone gets the word out that the maintenance staff from Father Young’s group were terrific on Monday… I feel they are always wonderful in terms of the cleaning and friendliness, but they really stepped up during the flood and we appreciate it.”
