Please be courteous to shovel and keep containers clear from snow and ice. This will allow Flood Brothers to ensure driver safety and also minimize disruption to your Village’s continual snow removal efforts.

Commercial Customers Need to Keep a Clear Path

Reminder to all our commercial accounts, please clear snow and ice around your containers and salt generously. Our drivers need to maintain safely measures and although may be able to get to containers using a winch, they may not be able to place it back into position due to heavy snow and ice conditions.

Groundhog Day 2015: Six more weeks of winter

Punxsutawney Phil did see his shadow... so that means six more weeks of winter but it’s not too early to think about Spring Cleaning!

As our city roads are being cleared of snow and ice and our kids enjoy another snow day, it’s a perfect time to think about cleaning out those closets and garages to make room for Spring and all the fun it will bring!

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from Flood Brothers

As we enter the final days of the 2014 holiday season, we’d like to pause for a moment to celebrate hope, joy, love, and reflect on all the good things in our world. As a family-owned business, Flood Brothers takes a personal interest in giving and helping those in need.

“It is more blessed to give than to receive” is evident in the smiles on the faces in our holiday scrapbook of photos. We experience firsthand the joys of giving when we play Santa and his elves. This year we spread holiday warmth by giving blankets to customers, packed food boxes for those in need, and distributed toys and stuffed animals to sick children.

Here are some of the nice comments we’ve received:

“We can’t thank you enough. I appreciate all that you did to help make the party a success. The pillow pets were a hit.” – Deena Gibson, Presence Health

“For a lot of these children, this was their only Christmas celebration and the only gifts they will receive so I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity.” – Patti, Labouré Clinic

“I wanted to thank you for the gift Shawn dropped off the other day. I am thankful for businesses like yours that I can depend on ... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your excellent staff!!! I look forward to another year of great service from Flood Brothers!” – Timothy Reed, Royal Die & Stamping Co. Inc.

“The Flood family is very charitable, good and giving. We couldn’t do it without them.” – John Ryan, Catholic Charities

Please remember to thank those who make a difference in your life.

Merry Christmas from Flood Brothers!

Flood Brothers had contacted My Pillow Pets for the 500 cute creatures, only to be told by the company's own Caleb B. that they would be honored to donate them for the cause. We thank Pillow Pets for their support and the difference they have made in these children's lives this year.

The Family Tradition of Giving Lives On at Flood Brothers

Three generations of the Flood family, with grandparents William and Carole Flood leading the way, packaged a record 1500 boxes in our 10th year of Christmas food packaging for those in need. More than 75 of the Flood Brothers family, extended family and friends joined in the annual event held Saturday, Dec. 6.

Each 45 lb. box was filled with a week’s worth of food for a family of five – potatoes, apples, fresh vegetables, canned fruit, bread , pasta, soup, cereal, oatmeal, peanut butter, jelly, pancake mix, mac and cheese, coffee, and more. Carole Flood and William’s 9 children and 32 grandchildren all pitched in, tripling the box count from previous years.

“I look forward to this day because it brings my family together for a cause of giving not receiving,” said Carole.  “I want all my children and grandchildren to learn the giving spirit because that is what the spirit of Christmas is all about. Even the youngest grandchild at age 5, Chloe, was a huge helper!”

The boxes went to Catholic Charities and other local charitable organizations to help struggling families put food on their tables. Flood Brothers would like to thank all those who helped and asks that you remember all those in need this holiday season.

Santa Visits Lurie Children’s Hospital with a Little Help From Flood Brothers

Led by Tom Meehan dressed as Santa Claus, along with his mighty elves, Flood Brothers sponsored a Santa giving day to more than 300 children at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The merry band traveled floor-to-floor visiting families and sick children.

Escorted by Elizabeth Wolcott and Robert Fry from the Lurie Children’s staff, the Flood team spent the afternoon bringing holiday joy to families in waiting surgery rooms, recovery rooms, and hospital rooms as they delivered 300 Olafs from the Disney movie Frozen.

“Flood Brothers is always willing to volunteer for our fundraising events,” said Ms. Wolcott. “As a family company, they do things in their own quiet way because it’s the right thing to do, not because they’re looking for recognition. For example, after Flood Brothers donated over a million dollars when the hospital moved to its new location, they made sure the elevator plaque was dedicated to their parents, William and Carol Flood.”

Santa Claus, aka Tom Meehan, was a big hit with children, parents and staff – posing for pictures, giving Santa hugs and producing gifts from his bag. At times Tom was the only one allowed in certain areas of the hospital for care safety reasons. While Tom was humbled by all the brave sick children, he was especially touched by one little girl who told him, “You have made me the happiest girl in the world today Santa!”

Flood Brothers is pleased and honored to be a proud sponsor of Lurie Children’s Hospital as their waste hauler. Patrick Flood, call center service manager at Flood Brothers, said: “Having my first child born here just 8 weeks ago with spina bifida made this day especially touching. To be able to come back and help so many of the sick children and their families is personally healing for me.”

Flood Brothers is Pleased to Support WINGS Holiday Program

Chicago, IL — November 17, 2014, Flood Brothers Disposal announced their donation to support the WINGS annual holiday giving project. By donating the use of a dumpster, the project is able to generate more resources to those in need.

The WINGS Program is an advocate for homeless women and children and provides domestic violence service to suburban Chicago. Single women and women with children are able to receive temporary safe shelter through WINGS housing while staff provides one-on-one, individualized assistance that allows women to set personal goals that will enable them to work, continue their education, and care for themselves and their children.

Flood Brothers is Proud to Support WINGS

“We greatly appreciate the donation of a dumpster by Flood Brothers to support our annual holiday giving project,” said Denise Urban, Chief Financial Officer of the WINGS Program. “With Flood Brothers’ support, we are able to process the donations and complete the wrapping required without having to spend time and money on disposal of packaging, empty tape and wrapping paper rolls, food for volunteers, and the other waste that accumulates as part of this project.”

Last year WINGS received and distributed over 4,500 holiday gifts to its program participants and graduates. It is an enormous undertaking made possible by the various individuals and organizations that donate their time and resources.

“Your support over the years has meant a great deal and we look forward to our continued relationship. Thank you on behalf of the women and children of WINGS,” continued Ms. Urban.
