Ingram's VentureTech Donates $60K to AIDS Foundation & Women's Shelter
Members supply IT gear, labor and services to the AIDS Resource Foundation for Children as part of a community outreach program called Big Apple Cares.
Distributor Ingram Micro Inc.'s 35-member VentureTech Network in the New York metropolitan area, known as the Big Apple Chapter, has donated some $30,000 worth of IT gear, labor and services to the AIDS Resource Foundation for Children as part of a community outreach program called Big Apple Cares.
Earlier this year the VTN Chapter donated a similar amount to New York's Battered Women's Resource Center, its first charitable IT outreach effort sprung from a program initiated in 2009 by members Chelsea Technologies, Comtel Global Services, Lincoln Computer Services and Micro Strategies.
The NY-area VTN community, comprised of IT solution and managed service providers focused on the small- and medium-sized business segment, has teamed with Ingram, Cisco Systems Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co., Microsoft Corp. and a host of others to offer IT refreshes to local non-profit organizations throughout the year.
This Saturday, September 25th, the fruits of their efforts with the AIDS children's foundation will be unveiled at an "IT Makeover" event in Newark, NJ. Read more...
