We know that taking part in the communities we live and work in goes a long way in helping each and everyone of us. Read about the ways Ames True Temper contributes to the community, not including the many organizations our employees stand behind.
2-Hour Season Premiere Sunday Oct 21 7/6c on ABC
Ames True Temper proudly donated over 180 tools to a recent Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in Etters, PA that benefited the Keefer family. From demolition hammers, scoops, and bars to shovels and wheelbarrows, we made sure the building crews had all the tools they needed to get the job done fast! Incredibly, the entire project was completed in one short week (June 19-25). And, since no new shed should go empty, we also donated a full complement of brand new lawn and garden tools (from spades and rakes to watering tools to snow tools -- and even the hangers to mount them) for the family. Watch the full makeover and learn more about the remarkable Keefer family and the spirit of community service and volunteerism they inspired on the 2-Hour Season Premiere Sunday Oct 21 7/6c on ABC .
When we help something grow, we grow ourselves. The Ames True Temper Community Garden will offer people in the Capital Region a place to grow and express themselves through gardening. The garden will be open to groups and individuals starting in Spring 2011.
Our goal is to grow the love of gardening through:
• Preparing a place in our community where people of all ages can put down roots
• Spreading the opportunity for people in our community to have a place to garden
• Tending to the need for gardening education in our community
• Harvesting a bounty of fresh, nutritious foods for individuals, families and organizations in the area
For more information about the Ames True Temper Community Garden, see our brochure.

All plots are full for summer 2012! Anyone who applies will be added to a waiting list
Ames True Temper Charitable Foundation Golf Tournament
The Ames True Temper Charitable Foundation sponsors an annual golf tournament, now going into its 17th year, for the purpose of raising funds in support of various charitable organizations that operate throughout the central Pennsylvania area and in other geographical areas where our facilities are located. Through the generous support of our business partners, associates and friends, we are influencing many lives of those less fortunate.
Take Pride in America
Ames True Temper donated 240 pruning loppers under the US Department of the Interior’s “Take Pride In America” program to help rid Fort AP Hill of the invasive Autumn Olive plant. The Boy Scouts of America provided the muscle to attack this problem during their annual national Jamboree in August 2010. 286 scouts put in almost 600 hours of labor to fight back this silent invader affecting the Nation’s public lands.
Ames True Temper partnered with Hershey Gardens in 2010 for The Great Garden Adventure, a new program which is geared to visitors ages 4-11, and features a fun and challenging guide which contains clues and hints to help kids solve mysteries throughout The Children’s Garden.
Each successful Adventurer receives a sturdy, child-sized gardening tool made by Ames True Temper®.
Remember Me Rose Garden
Ames True Temper is a proud partner of the Remember Me Rose Garden organization. “Remember Me” Rose Garden is a Living Tribute, meant to affirm life and to honor the memory of those who died in the attacks against America on September 11, 2001. “Remember Me” Rose Gardens will be created on or near each of the three sites. Ames True Temper provided tools for the groundbreaking and planting of the Shanksville, PA rose garden, and also sent tools to support three school gardens in the Washington DC area for schools who lost students in the Pentagon tragedy.
