Education and personal improvement are cornerstones of AOI Today. That’s why we’re passionate about improving the class room experience for the students and teachers of the Indianapolis Public School District. We serve on the board of the IPS Education Foundation. This organization raises much needed funding to help the school district thrive. Here we are accepting a giant check for $114,000 on behalf of the IPS Education Foundation. It was awesome being surrounded by the IPS students. They were as excited as we were and took turns holding the enormous check.

10,000 Trees in Carmel, Indiana Campaign
We’re spearheading a campaign to plant 10,000 trees in the city of Carmel over the next 10 years.
The campaign’s kick-off will happen on October 5th, 2020 in honor of the United Nation’s World Habitat Day. We’ll continue with our second event on October 24th. Our goal is to involve youth groups and other ‘roll-up-your-sleeves’ community members. We’re excited to have the Carmel Clay Parks Distrcit involvement.
Carmel Cleanup Crew: Cleaning the Streets of Carmel
We started the Carmel Cleanup Crew as part of our commitment to community service. We tackle to the dirtiest streets in Carmel, Indiana. We receive street suggestions from our fellow Carmelites. We meet every Saturday at 9:00am.
“I enjoy the tradition of hanging out with my daughter and cleaning together” said Miles Nelson, president of AOI. Our members enjoy the camaraderie and the sense of accomplishment. A lot of children now make up the growing group.
