AMS Employee Extra Curricular Donation Program
Posted by AMS / Monday, October 22, 2018
When a company becomes a B-Corporation, they make a commitment to be a force that is ‘Good For the World’. Of course there are a number of ways to be ‘good for’ the world. AMS excels in workforce development and hiring practices, environmental practices, and in many more ways.
Employees of B-Corps take pride in their company’s efforts, and employees of AMS are no different. In order to support employee efforts AMS has created the Employee Extra Curricular Donation Program. Each month AMS donates $100 to up to three employees who are participating in a non-profit organization, either by working with the organization themselves or sponsoring a child.
Oftentimes there are fees associated with participation in a non-profit, for items such as uniforms or equipment, travel costs, trips, training camps, creative projects and so forth. AMS’ employee donation program is intended to assist in meeting the cost of participation.
This month, AMS donated $50 to Valencia High School Lacrosse and $50 to Valencia High School Medical Science Academy to sponsor Veronica Lopez, AMS’ Billing Coordinator. The contribution helps to cover fees associated with participation of her stepdaughter, Mia, in her Lacrosse team and in the Sports Med Academy. The academy has several fees throughout the year for competitions, certifications and a class trip to Italy this summer.
Mia is in her senior year of high school at Valencia High (VHS). Beyond her intense class schedule as part of the Sports Med Academy, she also plays for her high school’s varsity lacrosse team and on an AYSO 19U team for Castaic (Region 1441).
Congratulations to Veronica for winning the donation! And kudos to Mia for her excellent efforts in athletics and in the Sports Med Academy. You’re a ‘go-getter’ and AMS is pleased to be on your team!
