ISI was fortunate to be able to spread a little holiday cheer in 2014 with an employee-based toy drive and a corporate giving program. ISI Bay Area employees participated in an annual toy drive. This year they contributed over 75 toys for foster children programs. On behalf of ISI clients and employees, ISI made a donation to Covenant House California that will make it possible for ten homeless teens in our communities to attend a six-month Life Skills Workshop. The workshop teaches the basic skills necessary to live and work independently. Covenant House provides much needed services to the homeless children in our northern and southern California Communities.

In the Works for 2015
In 2015, ISI is planning other charitable events and programs that benefit our local communities as part of our year-long 20th Anniversary celebration. Team ISI is planning an event with Pink Heals (the pink fire engine) to cheer up and provide assistance to a family battling cancer. For more information on Pink Heals visit https://www.facebook.com/pinkhealssolano
We also plan to continue our internship program which introduces high school/college students to the science of materials testing and special inspection. Our full service laboratories fascinate most students looking forward to careers in engineering and construction. Other charitable programs are in the planning stages.
We’d Like to Hear from You!
What are your favorite charities or causes? Do you know a deserving high/school or college student who might benefit from an internship at ISI? We would love to hear from you as we plan our upcoming charitable activities!
