Together We Help Our Community

March 2020 Tornado Cleanup

After the March 2020 tornadoes that swept through East Nashville and Mount Juliet, Goddard Construction jumped in to help with clean up and reconstruction. Our crews donated their time to help clear out debris from damaged neighborhoods, clean up felled trees, and protect damaged roofs with tarps until a full repair could be completed.

In 2018, our own Lesia Goddard helped donate snacks to Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in North Nashville. After visiting with Bishop Marcus Campbell, Lesia decided to volunteer Goddard Construction to help renovate the church building in 2019. Bishop Campbell runs summer programs to help take care of kids of essential workers during the summer. The church’s program usually hosts more than 200 local children, adding to the natural wear and tear of the building. 

We were honored to take part in the renovation of the Mount Carmel Baptist Church by giving of our time, talents, and skills.

Mount Juliet Help Center

We were honored to be chosen as the general contractor to build the new Help Center’s permanent location on Mt. Juliet Road. We also offer our congratulations to the Help Center on their long-time dream becoming a reality. Thank you for your service to our community!

If you’re unfamiliar with the Mount Juliet Help Center, they started in 1982 as a group of local pastors discussing how to meet the needs of local community members. By pooling their resources, they have provided help with food, fuel, and utilities. Since 1983, the Help Center has moved locations several times, but now has a permanent location next to the Celebration Lutheran Church in Mt. Juliet.

We’ve also enjoyed supporting the Mount Juliet Help Center by shopping for needed foodstuffs on their behalf. We took the time out of our day to review their requested food items, purchase the items, and then deliver the food personally to the Help Center.

Mount Juliet Little League Ball Park

After two tornadoes touched down in Mt. Juliet in 2013, the Mount Juliet Little League Ball Park was severely damaged. The tornadoes touched down as part of a greater tornado outbreak on January 30, 2013 that swept through Middle Tennessee and caused 1 reported death and at least 3 injuries according to Weather.gov. The outbreak saw over 23 tornadoes occur throughout Tennessee over the period of two days.

The tornado that blew through Mt. Juliet, Wilson County, touched down on Glenwood Drive and proceeded in a east-northeast direction for 6.4 miles over a period of seven minutes. The heaviest damage occurred in the commercial district near Lebanon Road and Mount Juliet Road.

The damage around the Mount Juliet Ball Park included damaged buildings, fallen power lines, destroyed fences, and felled trees.

Goddard Construction stepped in to help clean up and rebuild the field after the storm. Our contractors donated their time to help build new dugouts on the ballfields for players, as well as other construction repairs. We also donated building materials to the park so we could make sure the 2013 little league season could happen as planned.

Our Commitment to Community Involvement

We enjoy being involved in our community, because we believe we are part of a big family here in Mt. Juliet. We believe we’ve been blessed with resources we are responsible for using to bless the lives of others in our community.
