American Employer Group, a professional employer organization based in Clinton, Tenn., recently partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of the Clinch Valley to collect school supplies to help students prepare for the upcoming school year.
Over the span of three weeks, employees at both AEG’s Clinton and Oak Ridge office collected over 221 backpacks, 3,295 writing utensils, 852 pocket folders, 288 tissue boxes, 220 bottles of Clorox wipes, 1,048 packs of paper and notebooks, 131 bottles of hand sanitizer, and 1,735 other miscellaneous items. All the supplies collected will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club to then distribute to students as needed.
The total dollar amount of all items collected is estimated to be over $7,500.
“I’m very proud of our employees’ efforts,” said William M. Arowood, President of American Employer Group. “They have taken the idea of a small team project to a company-wide effort to help our community.”
American Employer Group leadership sees this donation drive as the first of many successful fundraising efforts resulting from the company’s new partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of the Clinch Valley.
“We have had great success in this community and look forward to sharing our success through a continuing partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of the Clinch Valley,” said Arowood.
