The I-4 Ultimate team doesn’t just invest in the improving the roadway, it works to improve the community, too.

This holiday season the team is involved in numerous charitable efforts around Central Florida.

Just prior to Thanksgiving, SGL Constructors — the joint venture team of Skanska, Granite and Lane — collected 1,680 food items for students at four schools identified along the project corridor. This year’s donation surpassed the goal of 1,380 food items and last year’s haul of 1,532 items.

SGL also made a $2,000 donation to the Memorial Middle School’s pantry. The donation is expected to keep the pantry stocked through the end of the year, and allows the school to be added as a new beneficiary to the I-4 Ultimate team’s charitable giving.

The holiday cheer is continuing into the holiday season and through the month of December. SGL led the Angel Tree Program that will bring holiday gifts to 80 children attending schools near the I-4 Ultimate corridor.

I-4 Ultimate team members select an angel ornament from a tree that contains a child’s information and their requested gift. SGL volunteers then deliver the collected gifts.

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.
