At AutonomouStuff we take pride in supporting our community, whether that’s locally or industry-wide. We know where we’ve come from and we’re happy to help out in any way we can.
“I am so happy and proud to have a team that sees the value in giving back. With all of our success, I realize more and more that it’s not always about where you are and what you’ve accomplished, but who you lift up and inspire along the way.”
Bobby Hambrick, AutonomouStuff CEO
Habitat for Humanity
The AutonomouStuff team loves to take every opportunity to get out into the community and show a little love. Recently the team volunteered with Habitat for Humanity Greater Peoria Area.
Habitat for Humanity is a wonderful organization that provides affordable homeownership opportunities to those in need. We recently had the chance to work on one of these homes for a very deserving single mother in our area. Not only did it feel great to serve our community, but it brought us closer as a team!

St. Jude Sponsorship
Every year members of the AStuff crew participate in an event benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital buy running and fundraising. St. Jude doesn’t charge for the care children receive, allowing their families to focus on what truly matters when childhood illness devastates their lives. It’s a cause that really means a lot to us.
At AutonomouStuff, we are passionate about many things. It’s what makes us who we are. One of our core cultural values is giving back to our community and we couldn’t be more proud of our team for supporting such an amazing cause!

Central Illinois Robotics Club
Education is so important to the AutonomouStuff team. Without the advancement of education we wouldn’t have the amazing team we have today. That’s why we take pride in supporting the Central Illinois Robotics Club.
CIRC was founded in May of 1997 in an effort to promote, educate, explore and compete in the field of hobby robotics. The club is located in the greater Peoria area and meets monthly.
Education is held as one of the club’s highest priorities. Members may participate in open forum discussions, hands-on workshops and demonstrations. Members will be encouraged to share their interests, experiences, knowledge and works-in-progress with others.

4G STEM Camp
We are very proud of our involvement with the local 4G STEM Camp. More than 50 young women from the area participate in the annual 4G STEM Camp (Girls Games Gadgets=Genius).
We had the pleasure of opening our doors to these young women and making them a part of our team. They were invited to learn about the latest in robotics and autonomy and work hands on with some of our most exciting technologies! We loved seeing their excitement for the future of technology and transportation.

Support to Universities
Our CEO has cultivated a culture of giving back at AutonomouStuff. One of the very first ways we were able to give back was through our support of universities.
University students are the future; the future of this industry and the future of the world. We take pride in providing support in whatever way we can to advance their education. Some of the universities we’ve had the opportunity to support have been West Virginia University, Penn University, University of Waterloo and many more.

Movember: Team AutonoMustache
For the second year, the AutonomouStuff team had a great time raising money for men’s health participating in Movember 2018. Many of our male employees proudly grew impressive mustaches, with the support of the AutonomouStuff Mo Sistas. Participates could set a move goal for healthy standards.
We hosted Monday breakfasts, a kick-boxing class and happy hour gatherings to raise even more money and take time out of our days to admire the great work and (mustache) growth. Together, our team raised nearly $9,000. Go Team AutonoMustache!
