MAPA members Bituminous Roadways, Inc. and Midwest Asphalt Corporation of Eden Prairie recently donated 320 tons of asphalt and 140 hours of labor and equipment time, to MN Adult & Teen Challenge for a new parking lot installation at their Minneapolis campus.
This two day project was unique in that competitors worked together to provide a local non-profit organization with a much needed parking lot installation, which would’ve normally been cost-prohibitive. The work was performed on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 5 and 6, 2016 by crews from Midwest Asphalt Corporation, using asphalt from a local Bituminous Roadways facility.
“Our mission at Bituminous Roadways is to do what we can to give back to the community,” states owner, Kent Peterson. “We are proud to be philanthropic partners with numerous organizations, especially with MN Adult & Teen Challenge as they are neighbors to our Minneapolis asphalt facility.”
Blair Bury, owner of Midwest Asphalt Corporation states, “MN Adult & Teen Challenge has had such an impact on many lives in Minnesota. The parking lot donation allows them to continue their work with a high percentage of success for their clients. The Christian based treatment program is second to none.” He adds, “It was a fun project that our employees enjoyed being part of.”
MN Adult & Teen Challenge is grateful for the donation. “Our focus is on our residents and assisting them through this life transition,” states Executive Director, Rich Scharber. He adds, “Without donations from companies like Bituminous Roadways and Midwest Asphalt, we wouldn’t be able to help as many people as we do.” The mission of MN Adult & Teen Challenge is to assist teens and adults in gaining freedom from chemical addictions and other life controlling problems by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
