We believe it is important to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and work. We encourage employees to get involved and provide opportunities for service within communities and our giving Matching Gift Program.
Many of our employees are involved in volunteer service from serving on community boards and committees to coaching sports teams and working with at-risk and homeless youth.
As a company, we support education funds and organizations that assist the disadvantaged people in our communities.
Every single Friday, you will find the employees at the Winnipeg, MB facility in Canada taking part in the company sponsored BBQ lunch. They do this to raise money for the Children’s Hospital in Winnipeg. They purchase toys and other needed items for the hospital along with Christmas gifts for the little patients each year.
You could say they are committed to this- they have been supporting the Children’s Hospital for the past 14 years. Oh, and they have raised over $120,000!
In Sahagun, Mexico there is a school for special needs children that has been experiencing some needs of their own. Fortunately, the Sahagun, Mexico facility and the dedicated employees there, have volunteered their time to do some much needed repairs and maintenance to the school as well as providing the students with gifts that include not just toys, but food as well.
The school and the students and their families have greatly benefited from the generosity of the Amsted Rail employees at the Sahagun, Mexico facility!
