To celebrate its 25th year in business, AAM employees were dedicated to committing over 1,000 volunteering hours, which was accomplished in just 4 days! AAM had the incredible opportunity to partner with Back to School Clothing Drive, an outstanding organization that provides new school uniforms and outfits, backpacks and school supplies for over 25,000 children in need.
For the event, held July 13, 2015 through July 16, 2015 at Grand Canyon University, AAM sponsored the days of service in which they encouraged all 300+ Arizona based employees to volunteer and help distribute the “back to school” items to the children. More than 10,000 underprivileged children were in attendance and were overjoyed with the outpouring of support they received and with the items they were able to take home with them.
In addition to the volunteer hours, AAM also asked employees to donate essential school supplies to help fill the backpacks that were being dispersed at the Back to School Clothing Drive event. It was a giant success! AAM was able to donate:
- 1286 pencils
- 124 packs of crayons
- 262 glue sticks
- 108 scissors
- 194 pink erasers
Additionally, AAM provided a check of $5,000 to aid the organization for future events and donation purchases. AAM was humbled to be a part of this unforgettable experience.
