Donation from KAMO helps fund annual AU Health Employee Cook-Out

Augusta University Health recently welcomed a $3,000 donation from KAMO Facility Solutions & Supplies, which helped to fund the annual Employee Cook-Out.

The Sept. 10 cook-out offered meals and encouragement to nearly 2,000 of “Our AU Heroes,” who have been working tirelessly on the front lines throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“While the fuel to continue the fight is very much appreciated, it’s more than a meal to these essential workers,” said Katrina Keefer, CEO of Augusta University Health System. “The support from donors like KAMO shows our team just how much the Augusta community appreciates them, and we are incredibly grateful for their generosity during the course of the pandemic.”

In addition to the recent cook-out, KAMO sponsors a meal for the entire EVS team each year during EVS Week, said Kenneth Philibin, director of the Department of Environmental Services for Augusta University Health System.

“Harris and the team at KAMO are great partners to AU Health. They consistently go above and beyond to be sure we have the supplies that we need, when we need them,” said Philibin. “The pandemic has been a very challenging time and KAMO made things easier by working with us every step of the way. We consider Harris and his team part of the AU family.”

KAMO President Harris Weinstein is glad to give back to those on the front lines of COVID-19.

“KAMO is so fortunate to have customers like Augusta University Medical Center,” said Weinstein. “When we were given the chance to support the health care workers, we jumped at the opportunity. Long-term partnerships like this one make our company who we are and help us to grow the right way.”
