Take Away Hunger
Twelve ASI employees participated in the February Take Away Hunger event in Grinnell, Iowa. This was our second year volunteering to make an impact on the global fight against hunger by "giving through doing." A packaging party team of 12 ASI employees made a difference by packing meals - each package containing a meal for a family of 4. Take Away Hunger is a food relief organization that unifies local teams of people who package a specialized rice based, soy casserole mixture which is used locally and overseas. It is based on a simple principle of people helping people.
Festival of Trees and Lights
Each year, ASI partners with the Iowa Architectural Foundation to support the Blank Children’s Hospital Festival of Trees and Lights. This event is the main fundraiser for the Hospital’s Child Life program and the Center for Advocacy and Outreach. ASI’s production facility creates the unique ornaments that adorn the tree. This year’s design utilized our laser capabilities to create etched acrylic ornaments, featuring nine "significant Iowa houses."
"As always, the ornaments crafted by ASI are beautiful. The organizers of Festival have told us they look forward to seeing our theme every year, and the ornaments are truly the most important part of the theme." - Kristin McHugh-Johnston
Valentines for Immanuel
At a routine meeting with Cheri Mundt, Immanuel Communities, ASI Business Development Manager Erin Carey was inspired to contribute to their annual Valentine’s for Senior’s. Employees and family from our Nebraska and Iowa offices created over 40 homemade Valentine’s Day cards. ASI’s contribution was part of over 7,000 valentines that were delivered to seniors in 43 different care communities across Omaha.
