Quietly, generously...giving back to the community
Hardaway has always understood the importance of giving back to the community that so generously supports us.
In a charitable response to the historic flood of May 2010, Hardaway and LP Building Products teamed with DA|AD Architecture and GS&F to rally community support, design and build a new 6,500 SF preschool building for Lighthouse Christian School, replacing what the flood had destroyed. None of this could have been accomplished without the support of the 125 subcontractors and suppliers and over 3,000 volunteers from the community.
American Cancer Society
Hardaway just completed our eighth year in sponsoring the East Nashville Relay for Life and has raised more than $81,000 throughout the years.
Hardaway is a proud supporter of the Y-BUILD program, a YMCA-sponsored career development program designed to prepare young adults for careers in the construction trades.
American Heart Association
To date, Hardaway has raised over $23,500 for the American Heart Association. Hardaway employees have participated in the Nashville Heart Walk for the past several years. The J.D. Moore Annual Chili Cook-Off, named in honor of a beloved Hardaway employee who passed away from a heart attack, raises money for this organization.
The 2015-2016 school year began our 30th year as “Pencil Partners” with Jere Baxter Middle School. As an annual tradition, Hardaway employees welcomed students back to school by greeting them as they arrived on the buses and presented them with a Hardaway "pencil". Over the past three decades Hardaway employees have volunteered in various capacities at the school and Hardaway also sponsors meals and events for parents, students and faculty to help make Jere Baxter a great school.
Big Brothers Big Sisters
Hardaway has participated in the "Bowl for kids' Sake" DMG Bowl-O-Rama which allows 40 children to be placed in the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization (BBBS). Hardaway raised $5,070 for BBBS.
American Red Cross
Hardaway is proud to support the American Red Cross. Since 2009, Hardaway has had a total of 48 donors, with 11 of those donating for the first time.
Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects shoes from manufacturers and individuals and distributes these shoes free of charge to people in need. Hardaway recently collected 108 pairs of shoes for Soles4Souls.
A Defining Moment Program
Hardaway has partnered financially with LifeWay Christian Resources in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ around the world through LifeWay's "A Defining Moment" campaign.
