American Solutions for Business, alongside their Stewardship Committee, raised funds for local kindergarten classes in Glenwood, MN. The Stewardship Committee at American promotes their culture and fosters fellowship among employees while directing events, activities, and fundraisers to benefit the communities in which they live and the causes to which they are dedicated. The group focuses on six to eight charitable causes each year but as needs arise, the team may sponsor other benefits.
Before covid they would meet monthly, serve a lunch and raffle items, to raise funds. Since Covid, they’ve been holding online raffles.
Every September, they hold raffles for the school. This year when SOS Specialist, Stephanie Hall contacted the school to see where there was a need, the counselor indicated that each kindergarten family is asked to pay $30 to help cover snacks for the year. Unfortunately, this is a struggle for some families. With that information, the Stewardship Committee gladly donated $500 to help cover some costs and alleviate the financial burden local families are facing.
The check was split between the four kindergarten classes. There were no requirements for the assistance but another opportunity to help the community.
Throughout the year, The Stewardship Committee also donate to Pope County Hospice, Pope County Food Shelf, Pope County Humane Society and Rainbow Rider to help the local Head Start children get a ride to school.
