AAM Group Creates ‘Gratitude Bags’ For Local Heroes

AAM Group Creates ‘Gratitude Bags’ For Local Heroes

The idea behind the project was to allow employees to thank those people who have faithfully served their communities.

Employees at The AAM Group recently gathered to create “gratitude bags” to hand out in their local communities during this holiday season of thanks. 

The idea behind the project was to allow employees to thank those people who have faithfully served their communities – especially through difficult times like the recent pandemic. Recipients included medical workers, first responders, police officers, firefighters and those in the service industry who continued to show up to work so that the rest of us could meet our day-to-day needs.

The AAM Group donated items such as food and gift certificates, while many employees contributed their own items to the effort. All told, AAM employees stuffed more than 300 bags – far exceeding the original goal of 200 – and employees brought back an allotment of bags to their own communities to distribute in thanks.

To expand the reach of the project, AAM also sent out more than 1,000 unfilled bags to its distribution and supplier partners as a way to invite them to join in the project within their own local communities.
