Community Outreach

Building Better Lives

Being independent shouldn’t mean going it alone. AMES is proud to contribute to worthy projects that build better lives and stronger communities through our community outreach programs.

Take Pride in America

AMES donated 240 pruning loppers under the US Department of the Interior’s “Take Pride In America” program to help rid Fort AP Hill of the invasive Autumn Olive plant. The Boy Scouts of America provided the muscle to attack this problem during their annual national Jamboree in August 2010. 286 scouts put in almost 600 hours of labor to fight back this silent invader affecting the Nation’s public lands.
