Great River Greening supports AP's environmental stewardship by leading community-based restoration to preserve natural areas, protect clean air and water, and increase access to healthy natural areas and sustainable open space. AP also chose to donate to Support the Troops Minnesota for Minnesota-based veterans and active service members in need of assistance.
"We are committed to bringing positive, measurable change to the communities in which we live and work," said Brad Hendrickson, Regional President, AP. "AP has a long tradition of service, which includes volunteering and donations to local causes. The inaugural golf tournament was a fun way to extend that work, connect with partners, and raise additional funds for the local community."
The event was a part of AP's annual company-wide Day of Giving program in which team members give back to their communities throughout the month. Last year, more than 700 AP employees and family members spent over 3,000 hours volunteering and raising more than $70,000 for organizations and causes in their communities.
