From May 1st until Labor Day AMEquipmentSales.com will donate $10 out of every machine sold to the Semper Fi Fund.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Lithonia, GA) There are over 20 million veterans in the United States, and the number rises every year. For many, their lives have been radically altered by their service, either through injuries or illness, resulting in the need for funds, programs, and benefits for these brave Americans.
In order to help support one of the premier service organizations providing support for our soldiers, vending machine business A&M Equipment Sales is participating in their Second Annual Fundraiser to benefit veterans. For the second year in a row, they will spend their summer paying it forward. Beginning on May 1 and lasting through Labor Day, they will donate $10 for every vending machine sold to the Semper Fi Fund.
“At A&M Equipment Sales, the main focus has traditionally been toward our customers. By providing them with the best quality machines in order to maximize their profits” stated A&M spokesperson Katie. “However, we feel it’s also our duty to give thanks, and to give back to those who fight so hard for our country, to grant us our freedom. We hope that, in some small part, our annual fundraiser is going to help to do that.”
The Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial assistance, as well as lifetime support, to post-9/11, combat wounded, catastrophically injured, and critically ill members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. This Fund delivers the resources these individuals need during their recovery and transition period back into the community, working to ensure no one is ever left behind.
“We at the Semper Fi Fund are appreciative of A&M Equipment for choosing us as the recipient for their annual fundraiser for the second year in a row. Their campaign will raise much-needed funds and awareness for our wounded, ill, and injured veterans and help us to serve those who preserve our freedom,” said Wendy Lethin, VP Community Outreach for the fund.
Additional information about A&M Equipment Sales, as well as the fundraiser, can be found by visiting the company’s website.
