AMJ Campbell in Canada has a long history of helping people and with five international hubs and 27 domestic branches across the country, the company has always been quick to help those in need.
So it was when the pandemic first struck. The company immediately redeployed labour to a charitable initiative called Ontario Feeds. Teams at the company’s Mississauga office worked tirelessly to assemble food hampers for those in need. In total, a whopping 700,000 hampers were prepared and distributed by AMJ drivers before the programme wound down.
Later, AMJ turned its focus to the Children’s Aid Foundation for which it has been a sponsor for over a year. The Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children and youths who have experienced abuse, abandonment and neglect. Stand Up for Kids is the Foundations’ national campaign. All of their much-needed services and programmes are made possible entirely through donor contributions. No governmental funding is received.
Following a presentation by Children’s Aid at AMJ’s pre-pandemic national conference, the company decided to wholeheartedly support this charity with as much passion as possible. In October 2020, AMJ staff came together to stuff backpacks with age-appropriate supplies: stuffed animals and blankets for the children, and toiletries for the teens. AMJ continues to support the charity with a donation for every home delivery, local move and international move completed.
