Community Outreach


Community Outreach

At EGS we are committed to community outreach. Our staff routinely assist in local community outreach efforts, and we support local K-12 stem activities throughout the year. We also encourge employees to donate time to a community service project of their choice, and we match their commitment of time with our commitment of financial support. At EGS we believe that if we work together, we can make our communities a better place to live.

FDOT Construction Career Days

EGS has been sponsoring and donating their time to support the FDOT District 2 and District 3 Construction Career Days for a number of years. These are yearly events that are hosted by the FDOT to teach high school students about the various careers in the transportation and construction industries.

Feeding Northeast Florida Project

EGS employees Isabella Caporini, E.I. and Katie Ball, P.E. (not pictured) and the Jacksonville Branch of ASCE partnered with feeding Northeast Florida to separate and prepare food package items for the local community in need.

Hurricane Ida Supply Drive and Delivery

After the tremendous devastation Hurricane Ida caused in our fellow Gulf Coast states and the outpouring of support North Florida previously received following Hurricane Michael, EGS knew we had to help. EGS, in coordination with The Mission Church and Bethany Church in Louisiana, organized a drive to collect disaster relief supplies that were most needed by the community. With supplies from over 30 individuals, 15 engineering firms, the City of Tallahassee, Leon County Public Works, FDOT, ACEC OF Florida, ASCE Jacksonville and Tallahassee Branches, and the FES Big Bend Branch, around $30,000 of supplies were delivered to southeast Louisiana just 2 weeks after the hurricane made landfall.

Sleep In Heavenly Peace

In 2022 EGS employees volunteered with Sleep in Heavenly Peace, an organization directed at resolving child bedlessness in local communities throughout the nation. Volunteers, including Tom Hayden, P.E., and his son, help to build and deliver beds as well as new mattresses, bedding, and pillows to underprivileged families.

Hurricane Michael #Rebuilding Together Project

The entire panhandle and beyond was directly or indirectly affected by Hurricane Michael. As a result, our company went into overdrive to help those in need following the storm. Christin Gorman, P.E. led the effort for EGS, and our firm collected and distributed food and supplies to Panama City and Mexico Beach for months, in conjuntion with the Tallahassee Branch of ASCE, the Big Bend Chapter of FES, and many other local engineering firms in the area.

SciGirls Summer Camp

EGS has volunteered for years to be a presenter at SciGirls Summer Camp Events. This is a program focused on exposing K-12 girls to the STEM Careers with interactive presentations and demonstrations. EGS participants have included Christin Gorman, P.E., Dyan Talbott, and many others over the years.
