Being part of the Holland team means giving back to the community. We take pride in being a good corporate citizen. Our team members generously donate their time to volunteer for organizations such as the Boy Scouts, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Rotary Club, Neighbors for Renewal, MS Society, and the United Way, as well as with local chambers and various church groups. Team members also participate in annual food drives, clothing and toy collections, and blood drives.

Community and charitable support has always been a priority for Holland Construction Services. So in 2015, the Holland Employee Charitable Foundation (HECF) was established with the mission of helping others in the community through donations and volunteering. The HECF is employee-run and driven and, among other initiatives, made the Klondike Klassic an annual event, with funds raised going towards a local organization voted on annually by the seven member Foundation Advisory Committee. To date the Klondike Klassic has raised over $180,000 for local charities.
Past recipients include the Jared Burke Foundation, Chakota Therapeutic Riding Center, Fontebella Maternity Home, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois, Lewis & Clark Council, Boy Scouts of America, Swansea Kingdom, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Special Olympics of Southwestern Illinois, and Swansea Patriots for Melvin Price Park.
The HECF is a 501(C)(3) public charity as a component of the the St. Louis Community Foundation.
Each year when choosing a beneficiary, the HECF committee looks at smaller deserving charities that may not get much funding outside of their own fundraisers.

Every March, Holland team members, friends and family participate in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois Bowl for Kids Sake tournament. The event helps raise awareness and the funding necessary to match a child with a mentor.
Every year Holland sponsors a food drive for the local food pantry. The food pantry is a not-for-profit organization that receives no government funding to run and relies solely on community involvement. Thank you to everyone who participated!
Holland sponsors an employee blood drive annually for the American Red Cross. In 2017, 12 people registered to donate and 11 productive units of blood were collected. For every unit of blood collected, 3 people are helped, so we were able to help 33 individuals!
