AMG Medical, Sams Club, Top Medical Supply Companies Offer Free Canes for Vets this Veterans Day

Starting on Veterans Day, AMG Medical Inc. will offer up to 25,000 free Hugo Folding Canes to veterans at Sam's Club stores around the country through the "Hugo Salutes Our Veterans" program. No membership to Sam's Club is necessary to take advantage of the offer and veterans who take advantage will actually receive a free one-day membership to Sam's Club. Canes will be available while supplies last.

The program was originally started in 2007 by AMG Medical to honor parents and relatives of AMG employees who served in the military. This year, the program expanded to the general public through the generosity of AMG Medical, Sam's Club, Procter and Gamble, Novartis, Wyeth, Johnson & Johnson, U.S. Nutrition, First Quality, and Schiff Nutrition.

Philip delBuey, global president of AMG Medical, said the Hugo program is one small way to say "thank you" to the veterans, keeping with AMG's mission to help people stay active.

  2. For the animals it's necessary to use the proper medical equipments. Otherwise, the result is not always the best.

  4. It was a great marketing strategy made by medical equipment supply companies. You didn't even need membership of Sam's Club, that's amazing.

  5. "Didn't even need Sam's Club Membership. That's really awesome.
    Equipment Supply companies would have benefit ted a lot with this."
