Lending Both Time and Expertise to Help Gleaners Food Bank
Gleaners is making an important difference for Hoosiers across the 21 counties they serve. During the challenging times we’ve all experienced the last few years, Gleaners has seen an amazing outpouring of support from our community. Every volunteer is an invaluable part of their fight against hunger.
Members of our Asphalt Materials team were on site at the Indianapolis Gleaners location on Waldemere Avenue on the 13th of September. The team helped package over 100 orders, which included enough for nearly 6000 meals.
September 11th through the 17th is National Driver Appreciation week; a time dedicated to showing our respect and gratitude to all professional truck drivers for the hard work they do.
We ask that everyone takes a moment to recognize the men and women on whom we depend on to deliver our food, medical supplies, goods and materials that keep America running.
When you see a truck driver, take the time to say thanks!

Our goal is to donate 1000 Snack Packs to Second Helpings and currently and we are recruiting team members to help achieve this goal.
This event is part of a larger initiative of Asphalt Materials Inc., which is partnering with 20 United Ways across the Midwest on volunteer projects. The company’s Indianapolis location is partnering with United Way of Central Indiana for the August project. The business will host another project in November, at the same time, the company’s other locations will volunteer with their local United Ways over the course of one week.
United Way’s basic needs work helps provide Hoosiers with affordable housing, reliable transportation, access to healthcare services – and healthy food. The need is great: Nearly 40% of Indiana households cannot afford to meet their basic needs, according to United Way.
“We are so grateful for the partnership with AMI and their commitment to the communities they operate in,” said Ashley Furois, United Way’s vice president of workplace fundraising. “These kinds of volunteer opportunities make a real difference to families who are facing economic instability because it’s one less worry in a sea of overwhelming and difficult decisions they face every day.”
Volunteers for the August event will be building kits during the times listed below.
#AMISERVES means that the AMI team is committed to building a safer, more enriching and sustainable world in the communities where we live and work.
Amelia Earhart was More Than Just an American Aviator
Born July 24, 1897
We celebrate Amelia Earhart as a pioneering woman of science, someone who participated in and promoted STEM education, much of it here in Indiana. In 1935, Earhart became a visiting faculty member at Purdue University as an advisor to aeronautical engineering and a career counselor to female students.
Being an Indiana company with deep roots stretching all the way back to 1930, you might imagine the connections with Purdue University are also deep-rooted. We are a company that is involved in construction, materials, chemicals, and environmental services with research and development across all of our businesses. These areas of parallel commonalities to a Purdue University STEM education are just a few reasons why these roots are so deep.
Our colleagues Megan Yount, from Heritage Research Group, and Dan Swiertz, from our Portage, WI location, will be presenting at the Asphalt Recycling & Reclaiming Association (ARRA) regional seminar. Join them Wednesday, August 17th at 8:15 AM as they discuss Pavement Preservation Techniques and give an overview on sustainability.

How long have you worked with AMI?
I started at AMI in March of 2022.
After our last AMI quarterly Blood Drive that took place on June 7th, we have saved 72 Indiana lives through our combined efforts and generous donations. We are so thankful for all of our blood donors. They are incredible! It reminds us that there is no better way to spread the love of life than donating blood to aid in saving others’ lives.
