Habitat for Humanity
ICT sponsored and participated in a Habitat Build Day on October 12, 2018. Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope. Since it was established in 1985, Habitat of Greater Nashville has built or recycled more than 1,152 homes, 832 locally, and served more than 2, 950 family members including 1,862 children.
American Red Cross strives to "prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors." ICT hosts blood drives to encourage and support our employees' roles in this mission.
Walk to End Alzheimer's is "the world's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's care, support, and research." Each year ICT supports a team to walk in the event as Alzheimer's has impacted several of the lives of our employees.
Love Helps is a home-grown Nashville-based non-profit organization founded in 1995. The vision for Love Helps is simple: help children become good citizens by promoting literacy, student achievement, and positive character. The staff and volunteers work to encourage and educate students about the importance of positive character and personal responsibility, both of which serve as the catalyst for future good decision making and responsible behavior in all areas of life. ICT has had the pleasure of being associated with the organization for over 10 years, and we continue to play in the annual kickball tournament each summer.
The American Heart Association is working with citizens and leaders, collaborating with neighbors and supporters. They are unraveling complex health issues in Nashville with a powerful combination of groundbreaking research and community leadership. These critical changes improve Nashville for all – moving us closer to a community, and ultimately, a world free of heart disease and stroke. This year ICT played in ESa and Market Street's annual cornhole tournament in The Gulch on Saturday, August 13, 2018 to benefit the American Heart Association.
The ACE Mentor Program of Tennessee introduces high school students throughout Greater Nashville to the excitement, rewards, and diverse careers available in the architectural, construction management, and engineering professions. We are honored to mentor these students to appreciate these fields from the engineering perspective.
