Hill & Smith auction raises $28K for The ATSS Foundation

Hill & Smith of Columbus, Ohio, raised $28,000 for The ATSS Foundation through an auction held online Jan. 19 through Feb. 2. Company officials presented The ATSS Foundation a check on Feb. 13 during ATSSA's 52nd Annual Convention & Traffic Expo in Tampa, Fla.

The company’s mission is to develop and produce safety-focused products and solutions to protect roadway workers and people traveling the nation’s roadways. That mission aligns with The Foundation’s core purpose to promote roadway safety through charitable giving and public awareness programs, which is why the company chose to hold the fundraiser.

“This auction is our way to continue to raise awareness to this important cause and raise funds for roadway worker families affected by tragic loss, all while working toward zero deaths,” Hill & Smith said in a statement explaining its decision to donate a complete Smart Cushion System for the auction.

All proceeds from the auction go to The Foundation.

ATSSA member D&M Traffic Services Inc., of Santa Clara, Calif., placed the winning bid for the Smart Cushion, which is a crash attenuator.

“We are grateful for Hill & Smith’s decision to hold the auction and donate this roadway safety item,” said Foundation Chair Kevin Shelton, pictured above, second from left. “We are also grateful for D&M Traffic Services for participating and for making the winning bid. These funds will go a long way toward assisting The Foundation’s work in supporting the families of roadway workers killed or permanently disabled in work zone incidents.

“We are thankful Hill & Smith chose to partner with The Foundation and for its commitment to our shared mission.”

Hill & Smith Inc. designs, manufactures and markets products, services and software. It makes intelligent highway safety systems and develops autonomous solutions, primarily serving the infrastructure, galvanizing, building and construction industries.
