HOUSTON – Consolidated Asset Management Services (CAMS) corporate office in Houston and the Vandolah Power Plant, a CAMS-operated facility located in Wauchula, Florida, recently supported back-to-school supply drives in their local areas. Enriching the communities in which we live and work is a core value for CAMS.

Throughout August, corporate employees donated supplies such as paper, notebooks, binders, scissors, glue, pens, pencils, and rulers to the 2022 YMCA Greater Houston Operation Backpack drive. This initiative benefits over 20,000 children living within Houston.

Vandolah employees also packed approximately 300 backpacks with school supplies for students from kindergarten through high school. The backpacks were distributed at the community’s annual Wildcat Tailgate event sponsored by Main Street Wauchula.

“CAMS’ participation in these events helps ensure local students have what they need for a great start to the school year,” said Mona Johnson, CAMS Senior Vice President of Environmental, Health, Safety, and Regulatory. “CAMS employees are actively involved in their communities and continuously pursue opportunities like these to make a positive impact.”

CAMS manages and operates energy assets that provide reliable fuel, transportation, and power throughout the U.S. and Europe. Vandolah Power Plant, owned by Northern Star Generation and operated by CAMS, is a 680-megawatt, dual fuel, peeking plant.

In addition to employee participation in local volunteer activities, CAMS increases the impact of these efforts through financial support and its charitable matching gift program.

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.
