ADOT is involved in the communities we serve

ADOT serves Arizonans in many ways, such as building and maintaining the state highway system, licensing drivers, registering vehicles and keeping commercial travel safe through our Enforcement and Compliance Division.

But we also get involved in the communities where we live and work by supporting causes and giving to those in need.

For example, members of ADOT’s Northwest District spent Veterans Day participating in a Turkeys for Troops event held in Prescott by the AZ Heroes to Hometowns Foundation. The program provides turkeys, hams and boxes of food to wounded veterans, Gold Star families, families of deployed service members, active duty service members and members of the National Guard and reserves.

Thanks to donations by ADOT employees, 10 military families received food this year.

Soto, maintenance supervisor; and Tricia Lewis, local public agency supervisor. They were on hand Sunday to hand out boxes of food along with gift cards good for one turkey or ham.

“While ADOT focuses on meeting the transportation needs of residents, participating in causes like this helps us meet another kind of need in our communities,” Stump said. “We are a part of this community as well, and we welcome the opportunity to help give back.”

Earlier this year, Northwest District employees partnered with Yavapai County to collect school supplies at maintenance offices throughout the district for children in need. The drive benefited more than 1,100 children.
