It’s the season of giving and the Christmas tradition continued at AMVC, where each December the internal staff spreads Christmas cheer in honor of the partners of AMVC. This year, the employees chose the Audubon County 4-H program and Audubon County New Opportunities to receive a donation. Each year, the charity or project varies, however, the organizations who receive the financial contribution makes a positive difference in the community and have similar values to the AMVC partners.
In order to decide what charities should benefit this year, the employees voted on what organizations they felt the partners would appreciate giving back too. The employees decided the money should stay in Audubon and be given to organizations that feed those in need, as well as, support youth involved in agriculture. Audubon County 4-H and New Opportunities both have needs this money will assist with.
Each month, New Opportunities provides food for families and always welcomes donations to help fill the pantry. In addition, Audubon County 4-H, will use the donation to help offset the cost of purchasing a new livestock retinal imaging machine that is needed for exhibitors to take their beef, sheep and goat projects to the state fair.
“At AMVC our company motto is doing the right thing every day. We are fortunate to be able make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate and support local programs in honor of the AMVC partners,” said Alicia Humphrey, AMVC public relations coordinator.
The AMVC employees are humbled to be truly a part of the community and help spread some extra Christmas spirit.
