AMC Cares Donates $10,000 to PEI Kids

The grant is part of a $3.4 million donation of cash and in-kind contributions by AMC Cares to charitable organizations nationwide


Leawood, Kan. – AMC Theatres is proud to announce Lawrenceville, New Jersey-based PEI Kids received $10,000 through the AMC Cares Charitable Grant Fund. During the AMC Cares Charitable Grant Fund Annual Ceremony, AMC announced the 2016 awards for 35 charitable organizations nationwide. This year, AMC donated more than $3.4 million in cash and in-kind donations to charities that support children and youth.

PEI Kids works with the child, family, and caregiver to provide prevention, intervention, and advocacy programs relating to personal safety, sexual abuse, and the overall well-being of the child. For 31 years, PEI Kids has addressed the most intractable issues affecting children, including child assault and sexual abuse, gang culture, and youth violence. Its prevention programs seek to keep children safe from violence and abuse; and its intervention programs bring healing and restoration to children impacted by violence, crime, and neglect.

This year, AMC asked organizations that support youth and children to visit and apply for a grant. A group of AMC associates from around the country selected the charities they felt best fit AMC’s goals and values, and allocated the cash from the AMC Cares Charitable Grant Fund and other resources accordingly.
