Contec has a lasting commitment to give back and accommodate the needs of our community. Over the years, we have welcomed and encouraged employees and their families to join Contec in participating and supporting the organizations that we are most passionate about. We are proud to have been involved in the following community outreach programs which have become a core value of our company.
Habitat for Humanity has been serving in Brevard County since November 1985. The organization stands by their mission to create “a world where everyone has a decent place to live” by building affordable homes which they then sell to families through no interest loans and at no profit with the help of volunteers and donations. Monthly building crews of Contec employees assist local home-sites in need of labor. Learn more about Habitat for Humanity.
The Adopt-a-Road program provides opportunities for individuals, businesses, clubs, church groups, and other organizations to adopt one-mile or greater stretches of City-maintained roads. Volunteers can help beautify the City by cleaning both sides of the roadway at least four times per year. Learn more about Adopt A Road and what roadways around town are available now.
“Meals on Wheels” is an initiative established by Brevard County’s not-for-profit organization Aging Matters. Aging matters is currently the lead agency for Senior Services in Brevard County serving in excess of 5,400 seniors each year. Every Tuesday and Wednesday, trained Contec employees volunteer to deliver a hot, nutritious meal to the homes of individuals aged 60 or older who are homebound due to illness, disability, or isolation. Learn more about what Contec employees are doing to make a difference in their community in our Community Outreach Blog.
OneBlood is a not-for-profit community asset responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood to 213 hospital partners and their patients. The organization was established on January 27, 2012 when three of Florida’s independent, not-for-profit blood centers, Community Blood Centers of Florida, Inc. (CBCF), Florida’s Blood Centers, Inc. (FBC) and Florida Blood Services, Inc. (FBS) came together in a merger of equals. The “Big Red Bus” is stationed outside the Contec offices at different intervals throughout the year.
