Dec 31, 2013
FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Dec. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Channel Company today announced the organization's charitable program, Channel@Work has completed another successful year. The Channel@Work initiative is designed to bring the channel community together to connect and give back to the local communities that are host to The Channel Company's XChange Events conferences throughout the year. In 2013, Channel@Work assisted charitable organizations across the U.S. including the Make-A-Wish foundation, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and Safe Horizon.
For each event, the XChange Events team identifies specific charities and coordinates with committed vendors, solution providers, and other IT executives on the appropriate contributions of time, technology and wish list items, and monetary donations.
This year's featured projects included:
"The Channel@Work program is our opportunity to give back to the local cities that host our events throughout the year," said Lisa MacKenzie, SVP, The Channel Company. "Thanks to the generous underwriter support of Microsoft, our sponsors and the many volunteers who give their time while at our XChange Events, the Channel@Work program continues to grow. We have been overwhelmed by the kindness and compassion of the channel, and the willingness of our XChange Events attendees to donate both goods and funds to support our selected charities. We look forward to this program's continued success."
In 2014, the program will kick off at the annual XChange Solution Provider event in Los Angeles, California. There, Channel@Work volunteers will work with CCEO Youth Build, a non-profit organization that fosters economic development through innovative employment training programs and the development of affordable housing. Participants will have the opportunity to work hands-on in various renovation projects at the organization's training site.
