At Amsted and our sister company Promus, we love to give back and one of the biggest ways we do that is our annual weekend helping out at Camp Smitty. For 14 years now, we have volunteered for a weekend in September to go up to the camp, which is a Boys & Girls Club of Ottawa initiative that ensures kids of all means have access to the summer camp experience, and tackle a variety of projects to help spruce things up. The work that we do to improve the camp’s infrastructure means that more of the necessary funds can be used to send underprivileged kids to camp.
