When Johnny Mackey isn’t helping someone remove mold from their home or repairing water damage, you can find the CEO of Delray-based Shamrock Restoration lending a hand at local community events.

Mackey and his partners at Shamrock Restoration are all about giving back.

Since they founded their business in 2017, they have partnered with several nonprofits to raise money and awareness for their causes.

This past Thanksgiving, Shamrock Restoration raised enough money, over $2,000, to provide 100 turkey meals to 100 families with the HATT Foundation.

Mackey and his team then helped distribute the meals the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Last year, the group also paired up with the Miracle League through Shamrock Restoration’s referral program. The company donated $100 to the nonprofit, which gives kids of all abilities a place to play baseball, for all referrals that mentioned Miracle League.

This year, the company is working with Delray’s Roots and Wings, a nonprofit that gives back to teachers with awards and gifts of appreciation and works to get kids reading on grade level with a tutoring program.

Mackey said the referral program will be in effect as well as fundraising efforts at events. Last month, Shamrock Restoration manned a 15 by 15 foot inflatable fast pitch area at Garlic Fest with help from The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Explorers. The fast pitch was free to play with all donations directly benefiting Roots and Wings.

This month, the fast pitch will make an appearance at Wellington’s Bacon and Bourbon Fest on March 21-22.

Mackey said combining the efforts of a local business, local law enforcement and a local charity help build up the community.

By the end of the year, he said Shamrock Restoration will attend about five different local events and work to give back to local nonprofits at each event.

He said attending events is the best way to spread the word about what Shamrock Restoration does so if someone needs their services, they know who is showing up at their door.

Mackey values customer service and wants customers to know Shamrock Restoration will help them get through what can often be a stressful time.

To put a personal touch on the experience, Shamrock Restoration sends out bios and photos of the technicians servicing a person’s home before they arrive so the homeowner knows who to expect at their home.

The company services Broward, Palm Beach and Martin Counties, but Mackey estimates about 70 percent of their business is from the Boca, Delray and Boynton area.

Shamrock Restoration helps remedy issues from water, fire and mold damage.
