For the past several years, Carol Fontanez, rental manager at Jamco Inc in North Orlando, Fla., and her team have been finding ways to benefit their community. They have used the traditional methods — offering extensive discounts for forklift rentals to nonprofit organizations — and have taken a more unique approach — "adopting" a road in Sanford and making sure it stays clean and free of litter.
