A Community Outreach Program
As ICG grows as a company, we continue to look for ways we can improve. In 2011, we were pleased to launch our philanthropic initiative, ICG Cares. This program is designed to maximize positive outcomes throughout our industry and in the communities where we live and work. We have launched a number of philanthropic community projects including the projects detailed below.
ICG Cares & HIMSS15
We had a fantastic time at HIMSS15! This year, we focused on our philanthropic initiative, #ICGCares. Our booth’s visitors cast their vote where our charity dollars go – to the American Cancer Society, Easter Seals, or the Alzheimer’s Association. All of these organizations will receive donations, but the winner was… Easter Seals!
This special organization will receive our primary donation, and we will be meeting with them soon to learn how we can help them in the coming year. Stay tuned for more from #ICGCares.
The Loma Linda Project
Loma Linda Children’s Hospital covers a very large market. As a result, many NICU families are hundreds of miles away, making it very difficult for Moms, Dads, Grandpas, Grandmas, and siblings to make the trip to see their new family member. Many high-risk babies stay in the hospitals for months at a time to receive the crucial care they need. The project we developed with Loma Linda allows for the purchase of equipment needed to connect families with the NICU unit. This technology allows the family to ask questions of the caregivers and talk to the baby and provides a level of comfort that would not otherwise be possible. ICG worked with the Foundation at Loma Linda to develop a schedule of the costs needed for this project, which we were happy to see come to fruition. We thank our employees, colleagues, friends, and families for helping to make this important fundraising initiative possible.
The Boys & Girls Club Bike Build Project
Every 15 months, ICG employees connect for 3 days of team building and fun at The ICG Gathering. In 2013, ICG employees, partners, and spouses met in Tucson, Arizona. During our time together, we had the opportunity to partner with the local Boys and Girls Club to build and donate a dozen children’s bikes and helmets. We were also able to meet and connect with a few of the kids who would be the lucky recipients of the new bikes.
