Acme Brick Company donates to Elmore County school

Company donates money and books

By

In July, Acme Brick Co. presented a cash donation, books and two new sets of the 2015 edition World Book Encyclopedias to Airport Road Intermediate School in Alabama. The presentation took place at the school. An additional set of World Book Encyclopedias was donated to Coosada Elementary School, also located in Alabama.

Back in March, Michael Butts, sales manager of Acme’s Coosada, Ala., stone operations, came across an article in the local Millbrook newspaper about a teacher who successfully reached out to publishers for book donations. What really stood out to him was that the local schools have struggled to update the books in their libraries due to lack of funding. The school book budgets have been hampered for about the last six years.

In addition to cash contributions, Acme also received almost 30 books from associates. And Acme president and CEO, Dennis Knautz, chipped in with a matching donation that allowed the purchase of three new sets of World Book Encyclopedias and four other sets about animals, science and more.
