In the minds of AMVC employees, there is no better way to celebrate the holidays than by helping others. This year, AMVC veterinary, nutritional and management services employees donated money to the Goodfellows Adopt-A-Family Project.
“Without the donated funds and gifts from so many kind individuals and businesses this program could not help the 87 families and 218 children that qualified through West Central Community Action this year. With the closing of the Tyson plant many families are finding it hard to make ends meet especially during the holiday season, said Greg Wehle, program coordinator.”
Each Christmas, AMVC employees choose charities that make a difference in the lives of people in the community and contribute to the cause on behalf of the partners of AMVC. Even though AMVC does not manage any sow farms in Denison, several of our employees live in the community. The AMVC donation will cover the cost of six Christmas meals.
“This is a great way for us to help those that are a bit less fortunate and ensure they have a good Christmas, and honor the partners,” said Dean Packard, sow production manager at AMVC Management Services.
AMVC employees also presented similar donations to organizations in communities in Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, North Dakota, Colorado and Wyoming where AMVC has a veterinary or management presence. AMVC is headquartered in Audubon, Iowa, and manages 110,000 sows across seven states.
