TEKsystems Richmond office donates to Heifer International.

This was about giving hope to families that have very little to hold onto, it was about giving a vehicle to teach with, a vehicle to live through, and a vehicle to care for. I'm very happy to have been a part of this collective effort

TEKsystems, the premier provider of Technology Execution services, has been recognized for its involvement in raising money for Heifer International during the late months of 2006.

TEKsystems' Richmond, VA office donated approximately $1,200 to Heifer International, an organization dedicated to relieving global hunger and poverty by providing gifts of livestock and plants, as well as educating financially disadvantaged families worldwide about sustainable agriculture. The office initially raised $500 through donations, which was matched by TEKsystems. Also, in the recent months, the office was able to raise an additional $200, allowing them to make a significant contribution to this organization.

Mark Hall, TEKsystems' Recruiter in Richmond, brought the charity to the attention of the office, and his co-workers enthusiastically agreed to help raise money for this organization. The gift of $1,200 was given as cash to Heifer International in order to fund the various needs of the area.

"It was a great feeling to contribute to an organization that not only provides living resources for needy individuals worldwide, but also educates those recipients on long-term benefits, gender equality, health, and sanitation, etc.," said Hall.

Jo Gucanac, Director of Business Operations for TEKsystems' Richmond office, expressed his gratitude for the unity and effort of everyone in the office to support this cause.

"This was about giving hope to families that have very little to hold onto, it was about giving a vehicle to teach with, a vehicle to live through, and a vehicle to care for. I'm very happy to have been a part of this collective effort," said Gucanac.
