Making the World a Better Place

Through our Seeds to Flowers program we encourage our employees to give back to our local community and it’s heartwarming to know that they want to do more than that. A&B is excited to announce once again to be partnering with Dispatch Project to make our world a better place.

A&B 2016 Awards

December 29, 2016

You can’t help it.  When someone brings up the Awards, your ears perk up, your senses heighten, and your eavesdropping skills are on point.  We all wait for this year after year, but this year is different.  It’s special.  You’ve worked your tail off, you’ve put in the extra effort, you’ve impressed your boss.  And now’s your shining moment of recognition……  

This must’ve been a few of the thoughts rolling around in the winner’s heads.  So we wanted to give a HUGE shoutout to those that did just that:  Worked their tails off, put in the extra effort, and impressed us all.  You.  Truly.  Deserve.  It.

A&B Christmas Story

December 21, 2016

In the spirit of the holidays, everyone needs a good Christmas Story.  So here’s ours:

Our employees went above and beyond anything we could ask for this year.  We have the most generous people at A&B, and that’s the thing we are most proud of as a company.  It’s why we provide great service to our customers, it’s why our employees are happy & our culture is thriving, and it’s why we can do things like this. 

We wanted to take on a couple Christmas projects for the Children’s Home Society in Sioux Falls.  After calling CHS and talking about our local staff, we settled on doing an Angel Tree & decided on a number of gifts to commit to that I felt we would be able to hit as a company.

Time is the Most Priceless Gift - JAMAICA TRIP

December 6, 2016

In this busy holiday season it’s easy to forget those less fortunate. We, as an A&B family, are very pleased to have employees that have a heart for serving others. Partnering with the Dispatch Project, Holly Arends, a Customer Service Associate with A&B, went on the service trip to Manchester, Jamaica - the home of the Jamaica Deaf Village – and one of main campuses for the Caribbean Christian Center for the Deaf (CCCD). Together, with a group organized by Dispatch Project, they volunteered their time to help out with few different projects from demoing a house to spending time with deaf kids. Time is one of the most priceless gifts you can give.

Rake the Town 2016

November 3, 2016

Along with “all things fall” we wanted to share with you all the AMAZING experience we had Raking the Town on Friday.  We completed the lawns of 2 people we were assigned by 10AM, so instead of calling it a day we started talking to one of the owners about the other people on her street.  7 lawns later, we had raked 75 bags of leaves, were exhausted, blistered, and yet overcome with laughter and joy from what we’d just accomplished.
