Community Involvement, Civil Engineers

Together, Gewalt Hamilton and our employees can provide a profound impact on our friends and neighbors in the communities that we work and live in.

Gewalt Hamilton employees volunteer their time to act as Board Members or Trustees of various local government agencies. We support and encourage our employees to lead by example and make a difference through volunteer services in the communities in which we work and live. While listed here are several of our biggest efforts, countless hours and commitment are poured into the local community by our employees every year.


With so many worthy charitable causes in need of support, we strive to align community involvement with our core values. Employees are encouraged to donate monetary values to organizations of their choice that directly affect them and Gewalt Hamilton matches the donation.

We are particularly proud of our work with Habitat for Humanity; Gewalt Hamilton has supported Habitat since 2003. GHA annually volunteers within the local community to build and repair simple, decent, affordable houses with those who lack adequate shelter. Furthermore, Gewalt Hamilton participates in the Adopt a Family cause through Habitat and provides full Holiday meals to families and presents to the children. http://www.chicagolandhabitat.org/


 


Chicago River Day of Service

This Holiday season, Gewalt Hamilton shared our blessings and participated in the Presence Health Winter Coat Drive benefiting the MorningStar Mission and Daybreak Center in Joliet, IL. This effort helped clothe the less fortunate in the community. http://www.presencehealth.org/
