Amassador Bear Paw Creek to host American Made Matters Day in Mt. Vernon, MO
By: Bear Paw Creek
November 19th has been declared American Made Matters Day not just because of the positive impact that manufacturing has on jobs, but also on local communities, the U.S. economy, product safety, the environment, and the future of America.
To celebrate American Made Matters Day, events will be held in twenty-one locations throughout the United States. These events will show the new American Made Matters video, provide information to consumers, and give consumers the ability to buy U.S.-made products. Some locations will offer food and music. Many members will be offering online sales and specials, as well.
Your local event will be held at the MARC, 822 West Mt Vernon Blvd, Mt Vernon, Missouri 65712 on Wednesday, November 19th from 10 am to 3 pm. The event will include local vendors where you can come purchase USA Made products and gifts, door prize drawings throughout the day donated by local businesses, and the AMM video will be on display along with their promotional items.
Don Rongione, President and Founder of American Made Matters, says, “Buying American made products creates jobs, stronger communities, independence and security for our country, an improved national economy, safer products, and a more environmentally friendly planet. Each of us can make a difference every time we make a purchase. American Made Matters Day was created as a call to action to use our individual purchasing power on November 19 and during the holiday shopping season to make a difference for our future.”
The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis reports that every $1 spent on American-made goods invests an additional $1.32 in the U.S. economy. If Americans dedicated just a small portion of their holiday shopping budget to buying American-made goods, it could have a very positive impact on our economy. In fact, according to ABCNews, if each American family spent just an extra $49.95 on American-made goods, the spending would generate 150,000 American jobs.
