Sauer Compressors USA and its employees are committed to supporting our community by making it a better place for our families, friends, and those in need. Our employees organize and participate in a number of community projects annually in our local community.
Queen Anne’s County Crab Basket Tree
The Crab Basket Tree is a unique Chesapeake tradition. In Queen Anne’s County, it’s a whole community effort involving schools, community organizations, and family members painting basket designs to honor the lives of past, active, and deceased watermen. The Crab Basket Tree is erected next to the Maryland Watermen’s Monument in Grasonville, MD. All proceeds from the project go to help local watermen and families in need. Sauer Compressor USA is part of the display, thanks to employee Amanda Riordan for designing the basket.
Pack the Pantry
Haven Ministries Emergency Food Pantry is available to provide emergency food to the residents of Queen Anne’s County. Sauer USA employees compete in teams to collect the most dry goods for the local Emergency Food Pantry. In November 2023, our employees collected and delivered 812 items to Haven Ministries.
Kinera Foundation – Trunk or Treat
The Kinera Foundation helps individuals with special needs and their families by providing resources and support services that help enhance their quality of life. Sauer Compressors USA was excited to sponsor their trunk or treat event with a decorated vehicle and giveaways.
Easter Egg Hunt
The first Sauer-sponsored Easter Egg Hunt was an egg-cellent success! Located in the Chesapeake Business Park on Skipjack Parkway, children of all ages hunted for eggs and visited the Easter Bunny.

It also educates the community on the ongoing opioid epidemic and offers a purview on drug awareness and stereotypes that continue to perpetuate addiction.
