About The Program

OAAI’s Public Service Program

OAAI’s Public Service Program assists not-for-profit charitable organizations and governmental agencies with communicating critical messages to the motoring public. Through the generosity of our billboard company members, advertising space is donated to qualifying organizations whose purpose is to raise awareness on important issues such as improving the quality of life for children, preventative health, education, community well being, environmental preservation and strengthening families. In conjuction with our partners, OAAI donates thousands or dollars each year to bring to the forefront these and many other important messages to the citizens of Illinois.
