The giveaway promotion encourages parents to take children fishing or camping in the Tennessee Valley region.

Each year TVA sponsors its Community Outreach Support Program that assists with funding in several areas related to environmental stewardship, which is part of its mission of service. With funding provided by TVA, AMLA will give away lunch bags to the first 200 kids to AMLA’s booth each day of the annual expo held at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Ala.

“The Tennessee Valley region is filled with numerous natural wonders, parks, campgrounds, and eight lakes that offer endless opportunities for families to experience together,” said AMLA president and CEO Tami Reist. “TVA has a long history of commitment to the region it serves. We appreciate their willingness to give back and to promote the use of the natural resources found across the region.”

The expo is a destination event for hunting, fishing, and outdoor enthusiasts, as well as the top outdoor retailers and organizations. The expo will feature hands-on product demonstrations from a wide range of hunting and fishing venues.
