AGL Shopping for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree

On Tuesday, November 18, 2014, AGL employees shopped for children that were adopted from the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree.  AGL made a donation of $1000 which allowed employees to purchase $100 worth of Christmas presents for each child.  With the assistance of the Salvation Army’s Captain, Shauntrice Williams, AGL’s volunteers had a great time searching out gifts for each child. Using the generous donation, the volunteers were able to purchase necessities for each child as well as toys or items from their “Wish List.”

Rooster Walk Inc. and American Global Logistics have partnered to buy one new instrument and create a program to repair numerous older instruments for the Martinsville school system’s band program.

American Global Logistics partnered with Rooster Walk, Inc. to make matching donations of $1,000 to support the Martinsville High School Jazz Band program. A portion of the funds went toward the purchase of a Casio Privia keyboard with the remaining funds being used to create an instrument donation and repair program.

AGL’s donation was made in memory of Todd Eure, both a former AGL employee and member of the MHS Jazz Band, who passed away nearly a year ago. Blake, our general manager, was quoted in the Martinsville Bulletin saying, “I don’t know how good Todd was with an instrument, however, I do know that Todd was very much a giving person. He was the guy in our office that would help whoever with whatever he could at any given time. This keyboard and music program that Rooster Walk is putting together to provide instruments to kids in need will make a difference to the students here in our community. The program is a perfect memorial for Todd and his family.”
