AMS: Gifting ‘Green’ for the Holidays

December 25, 2020

Each year AMS says Happy Holidays to its clients with a gift of sweets or cookies for everyone in their office to enjoy. It has been an enjoyable tradition. But this year offices are not the same with so many working from home. This year we also have a deeper appreciation for our clients in that we have met the challenges together! We have climbed mountains together!!

Our clients know that we are a B Corporation, dedicated to serving them and more. Many have expressed appreciation that they can fulfil their products with a company that is focused on preserving the environment, caring for the community and advancing the education and training of their employees.

This year we have decided to make a contribution on behalf of our clients to the National Forest Foundation. It is exciting and a great pleasure to support our precious National Forests. Many of us have enjoyed these treasures at some point, driving, hiking or camping. Here below is a bit of information about our National Forests:

National Forests and Grasslands provide Americans with 193 million spectacular acres of wildlands.

*More than 9,000 miles of scenic byways to drive
*Almost 150,000 miles of trails to hike
*More than 4,400 miles of wild and scenic rivers to float
*At least 5,100 campgrounds in which to pitch our tents
*And 328 natural pools to swim in

All this and the chance to see elk and bear, ducks and deer, trout and trees, thousands of species of plants, and billions of stars in a midnight sky.

The National Forest Foundation, chartered by Congress, is the leading organization inspiring personal and meaningful connections to our National Forests, the centerpiece of America’s public lands. The NFF engages Americans in community-based and national programs that promote the health and public enjoyment of the 193-million-acre National Forest System and administers private gifts of funds and land for the benefit of the National Forests.

Working on behalf of the American public, the NFF leads forest conservation efforts and promotes responsible recreation. We believe these lands, and all they provide, are an American treasure and are vital to the health of our communities.

Regarding the contribution, AMS CFO Tony Shepherd offered, “AMS is proud to support the NFF on behalf of its clients, our employees, our community, and investors. For more information on the NFF, please visit their website at www.nationalforests.org.”

Happy Holidays to our clients! We look forward to working with you in the New Year!
