The holidays are right around the corner, and amongst the preparations for Christmas, office and vet clinic employees at AMVC collected money to be used to spread Christmas cheer on behalf of the partners of AMVC. Each year, AMVC employees choose a variety of charities to help those less fortunate. Within Audubon County, two charities were chosen that had different needs this holiday season.
The Exira Christian Church received a donation of personal care items, as those who get food assistance stamps cannot use those funds for care items. A variety of toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, soaps, paper towels and toilet paper rolls were given to the church to distribute. In addition, Audubon County New Opportunities received a monetary donation to cover the cost and transportation of having pork in their freezer from the Iowa Food Bank. The donation will be used to replenish their freezer on an as needed basis.
AMVC employees are humbled to give back to the community and help spread some extra Christmas spirit.
“At AMVC our company motto is doing the right thing every day. As a group, we could not think of a better way to exemplify how much we care about the community and to honor the partners. It is a great way for us make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate and ensure they have a good Christmas,” said Alicia Humphrey, chair of the Christmas committee at AMVC.
Similar monetary donations were also presented to Guthrie County New Opportunities, Wheatland Lions Club (Wyoming) and the Montgomery County Nourish Program (Indiana).
