The Company has fun while raising awareness and supporting the American Cancer Society
ACWORTH, GEORGIA, October 9, 2015 — Americo employees gathered on October 9, 2015 for a typical company picnic, but this year’s event was anything but ordinary. The owners traditionally hold an Annual “Americo Family” picnic in appreciation of its employees. This year the company and its employees raised awareness and donations for the American Cancer Society. Employees gave raffle donations and took part in a fundraiser to see their favorite co-workers get a pie in the face! Everyone had a great time together while giving to such an important cause.
Americo’s Vice President of Human Resources, Julie Charyna says, “I feel fortunate to work for a company that is committed to making a difference in the lives of the people we touch every day – whether it’s our colleagues, customers or simply those in need. Turning company events into charitable benefits, demonstrates not only the giving spirit of our owners, but the generosity of our entire team at Americo.”
