Clifton Park, NY (PRWEB) March 19, 2006
For the third year in a year, HostRocket.Com, Inc has stepped up to the plate and sponsored the US FIRST robotics team at Shenendehowa High School with a $20,000 cash donation. Since 2004, the company has contributed more than $60,000 in cash to the organization. In additional to the cash contributions, many HostRocket and ViaTalk employees have devoted countless hours of time to serving as mentors for the program throughout all three seasons.
Company executives Brendan Brader and John Reyes are especially involved in the program. The two participated in the program years ago when attending Shenendehowa High School before graduating in the class of 1999 and founding HostRocket. For that reason, they both have a special connection to the program and deeply understand the immense benefits that students can realize from participation.
“HostRocket and ViaTalk are both incredibly fortunate to have been blessed with the massive levels of success that we have been. For that reason, we are proud to give back to our community and serve as good corporate citizens of the Capital Region,” commented Timothy Dick, HostRocket and ViaTalk Vice President of Operations.
