The Indian Community Center (ICC) was formed in 1985 to serve the local Indian community by conducting various educational, cultural, and spiritual activities to preserve the traditional Indian heritage of our children born and raised in the USA. ICC is the parent organization of Shri Sanatan Mandir (temple), set up in 1989 in Parsippany when a 4.5-acre nicely wooded property was purchased. The temple actively celebrates many religious and cultural events.

ICC conducts a Sunday School to teach Indian languages, music, culture, and philosophy to children. A scholarship program is being initiated for deserving students of Indian heritage based on their SAT scores. ICC also conducts a senior center to allow seniors in the community to meet regularly for lectures, devotional music programs, field trips, etc.

ICC has also been active in several community projects in both USA and India. It has supported the local ambulance squad, police, and fire departments in Parsippany and donated to various natural disasters in India, like the Orissa Cyclone Relief Fund, Gujarat Earthquake Relief Fund, and Tsunami Relief Fund. It also works with various hospitals and associations to set up medical camps for needy people in the local community.
