LAWRENCEBURG, IND – Lawrenceburg Power, a CAMS operated facility and a wholly owned subsidiary of Lightstone Generation located in Lawrenceburg, Ind., recently delivered canned goods to seven local food pantries across three counties through People Helping People.

It was the first time they were able to provide in-person delivery to these communities since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The deliveries will help hundreds of families over the holiday season in the four counties surrounding the power generation station.

“It was good to get back to some normalcy being able to hand deliver food to these communities,” said James Dustin Ketchem, Lawrenceburg Power’s O&M Superintendent. “Once again, this year the cupboards were bare when we arrived, and we left them full. We’re grateful to be able to support this charity and help our local communities each year.”

Lawrenceburg has delivered canned goods with People Helping People for several years. Last year, due to COVID, employees of the plant were still able to provide the communities with monetary donations. One recipient, Versailles Legion, used the money to support 50 families with grocery cards and provide shoes for 100 kids in the local community.

People Helping People is a poverty alleviation nonprofit organization in Southeast Indiana. It started in 1988 and has been based out of Lawrenceburg since 2015.

HOUSTON – Consolidated Asset Management Services (CAMS) recently held a Thanksgiving drive and donated boxes of non-perishable food items and other necessities for City Wide Club’s 43rd annual Thanksgiving Super Feast at the George R. Brown Convention Center. This year’s event fed almost 30,000 families.

CAMS is dedicated to assisting communities in need and each package distributed as part of this event provided a family of 5-6 with up to 3-7 days of food for the holiday season.

“It’s been a hard year for many in our community in the Houston area,” said Mona Johnson, CAMS Senior Vice President of EHS&R. “According to the Houston Food Bank, one in seven Texans are food insecure. That problem has only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are fortunate at CAMS to be able to give back in any way possible. Providing Houston families with meals over the holidays is a small gesture that we are grateful to be able to provide.”

Organizers of this year’s event said it was a little different than years past, where they offered both dine-in, and drive-thru grab-and-go style plates. About 3,200 turkeys were cooked for the feast, and another 15,000 were distributed at a separate drive-up location outside the convention center.

HOUSTON – Consolidated Asset Management Services (CAMS) supported Houston area families and students as part of the YMCA of Greater Houston’s 17th annual Operation Backpack, a drive that provides backpacks and school supplies for students in need.

CAMS employees organized a collection and filled new backpacks with the supplies to make a difference in the local community. The investment made by CAMS employees provides children the opportunity to return to learning with the tools to be successful.

“Many of us have kids of our own and know the importance of having the necessary supplies to excel in the classroom,” said Mona Johnson, CAMS Senior Vice President of Environmental, Health, Safety and Regulatory. “This drive directly addresses the needs of our local community, and it was wonderful to see our employees take the initiative to coordinate it.”

According to the YMCA of Greater Houston, 28.8 percent of Houston students age 17 and younger live below the poverty line. By distributing necessary school supplies, YMCA Operation Backpack’s mission is to fill students with hope for a brighter future as they start the school year. The YMCA’s goal is to reach 30,000 Houston area youth.

CAMS values and aims to enrich the communities in which we live and work.
