As part of our strategic planning process, A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply volunteers their time and talents to contribute to the communities it serves, not only by donations and sponsorships but by a hands-on, team approach to making a difference.
NORTHERN ILLINOIS FOOD BANK
While the coronavirus pandemic has impacted thousands of people in a myriad of ways, it also brought to the forefront the hunger issue in the U.S. and even in our own neighborhoods and communities.
Since our first occasion July 23, 2020, and three other outings, we have packed and sorted 11,749 pounds of food creating 13,943 meals which included 480 Thanksgiving meals. We’ve labeled cans, sorted different foods, and created different boxes to take to our neighbors in need.
“It was such a rewarding and fun day – what a great feeling to help others,” stated Nick V. Polizzi, President of A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply.
Due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 42 million people may experience food insecurity, including a potential of 13 million children in the United States. Every community in the country is home to families who face hunger including rural and suburban communities.

FIGHT FOR AIR CLIMB
As a family-owned and close-knit business, when one of our employees died of a long battle with lung cancer, we decided to turn our grief into something to benefit our local community and raise awareness for lung cancer by participating in the Fight For Air Climb. For this reason, Team Todd was created.
Todd was an amazing man and we all loved working with him. Determined to honor his memory we invited all employees, family, and friends, as well as Todd’s family to join our team.
Participants climbed the stairs of Oakbrook Tower, Oakbrook Terrace, IL – a “vertical road race’ of 31 floors and 680 steps. In the five years from 2015 – 2019, Team Todd raised over $53,000 to honor our co-worker and friend which supports research, educational programs, and advocacy efforts for clean air and healthy lungs.
