American Solutions for Business (PPAI 101656, D12) raised $7,100 as part of the Glenwood, Minnesota-headquartered distributor’s annual adopt-a-family initiative during the holiday season. In a tradition started more than 20 years ago, the company’s employees and sales associates raise the money as a Christmas present for ASB Founder and CEO Larry Zavadil and his wife, Diane. This year’s final results were shared at American’s annual holiday party.

American receives information regarding the needs of each family such as number of children, household needs, holiday wish lists, etc. Then, items are purchased and given to the families through a third-party organizer to maintain anonymity.

“This has always been the best gift the American team can give us,” says Zavadil. “The fact that together, we can make a lifelong impact on families in our community—especially during the holidays and cold-weather months—means everything. I’m incredibly proud.”
