We have dedicated our lives to serving those in need, our neighbors, our friends.

OUR IMPACT

Since the pandemic began, ICA has led the COVID19 hunger relief efforts in the County.

We have distributed over 2.3 million pounds of food to struggling families in our community – substantially more than the Howard County Food Bank, which distributed about 1.3 million pounds of food in about the same period.

We have been able to sustain this effort with the help of more than 350 volunteers. We have been out there every week, in the snow, rain, and blistering heat to help our neighbors and fellow Howard County residents.

 

ICA has inspired Howard County citizens into giving of themselves. ICA started its food distribution with 3 volunteers. We now have a pool of 350+ volunteers who have become a part of the ICA family.
 

Distributions have taken place at Schools, Libraries, Temples, Churches, Gurudwaras, Apartment complexes, Senior homes, Apartment complexes, Trailer parks, Homeless/Women’s shelters, with deliveries to individual families.

VOLUNTEER WITH THE ICA

A video by a volunteer Ashley talks about ICA and our SEVA. 'SEVA' in Hindi means selfless service to others without expecting anything in return. SEVA is the guiding principle of ICA. We are grateful to be able to serve and we serve with humility.
