2020 has been a life-changing year for all of us and I just want to take a moment to thank our people and our partners who make everything we do possible.
On August 23, we officially launched our 2020 ALL IN campaign. What is ALL IN? Simply put, it is our culture at ADB Companies. We believe in being ALL IN in everything we do. From safety, to taking care of our partners, to embracing our world-class culture, being ALL IN is how we will continue to succeed, grow, and create more amazing opportunities for our team members.
Watch the video below to hear from our team members across ADB Companies about what being ALL IN means to them.
We can't wait to see what the rest of 2020 has in store for us!

KeeleySafe: Safety During COVID-19
As stated in our mission statement, "The safety, well-being, and career growth of our Keeley'ns are the benchmarks of our success." Safety is at the center of everything we do at Keeley Companies, and has been our main priority during COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought its challenges, but our Safety Team rose to those challenges in order to ensure the health and safety of all team members on our jobsites across the country. Daily health screenings, social distancing, increased cleaning procedures, and much more have been put into place to help curb the spread of COVID-19 and keep our Keeley'ns healthy.
Safety Ray's newest video series, Awkward Disruptions, focuses on providing important information and tips on how to keep Keeley’ns and their families safe and healthy during this pandemic. Check out the latest Awkward Disruption about face coverings below.
#KeeleyCares: The Urban League
The COVID-19 Crisis has greatly affected the underserved in our community. The Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis has stepped up to serve and provide assistance for thousands of families in need. #KeeleyCares is blessed to work alongside and support the important work of the Urban League. Food, toiletries, and safety items are handed out via Drive-Thru Food Distributions to families in need. 3,000+ families are being served each Saturday throughout the summer. #KeeleyCares' funds, equipment, and volunteers are playing an essential role in these endeavors. It is an amazing community effort and we are grateful to be involved!
This summer, over 250 Keeley'ns were lucky to have served over 60,000 families with one Keeley'n being asked to join the Urban League Board. With over $2 million in donations and gifts contributed to this effort, we have witnessed firsthand that "Together We Make a Difference."

KeeleyOne: Empowering Every Voice
On Thursday, August 13, during Rusty’s Semi-Annual CEO Address, we announced the launch of our sixth cultural pillar, KeeleyOne, which focuses on Diversity and Inclusion with the mission to empower every voice across the Keeley Companies and beyond. During Rusty's presentation, he invited four Keeley'ns to speak about their experiences and passion behind KeeleyOne and bringing true equity to Keeley Companies.
With the help of KeeleyU, KeeleyOne will provide various educational opportunities for team members who want to gain understanding from various perspectives. This allows Keeley’ns to grow and have meaningful conversations with the people they love and care about which creates an environment where team members feel safe and heard.
