In celebration of Almo Corp.’s 75 years in business, Almo Professional A/V is focusing on 75 ways of giving back. As part of the yearlong celebrations surrounding this achievement, Almo employees are lending their time and talent, and the company is providing product and monetary donations to 75 different organizations.

During InfoComm 2021, Almo will be making a $4,075 donation to the AVIXA Michael Vergauwen Scholarship to invest in future AV professionals. Additionally, the company will be donating thousands of dollars’ worth of private-label brand furniture featured in the Almo booth to the West Orange Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

“As a company, giving back to our industries and communities is the most productive and rewarding way to celebrate our 75th anniversary milestone,” said Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO at Almo Professional A/V. “We’ve carefully selected 75 different organizations representing causes that are important to us, both professionally and personally. AVIXA’s Michael Vergauwen Scholarship is especially significant as we are passionate about mentoring and supporting those who will lead the AV industry in the decades to come.”
