The I-4 Ultimate team is investing as much into the community as it does into improving the roadway.
This holiday season the team is involved in numerous charitable efforts around Central Florida.
SGL Constructors — the joint venture of Skanska, Granite and Lane — began their annual Season of Giving on November 1 by calling on all members of the I-4 Ultimate team to collect non-perishable food and personal hygiene items to donate to the Killarney Elementary School food bank.
The gifts are gathered from all four construction offices of the project, as well as participants from the Florida Department of Transportation, HNTB, Volkert, Jacobs and HDR.
More than a quarter of the Killarney Elementary students do not have permanent homes and live in motels or with relatives or friends.
These students receive food packages every Friday, but during the extended holiday weeks in November and December, the food bank often finds itself short on available items to distribute.
SGL delivered all the donated items at Killarney Elementary on November 16.
SGL’s Season of Giving continues in December with the collection of over-the-counter cold and flu remedies and a donation of food items to a local homeless shelter.
