Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 25, 2010
Kinnser Software, Inc. announces contributions of $15,000 to the Disabled American Veterans Charitable Service Trust and $10,000 to the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas.
Chief Executive Officer Christopher Hester made the decision to contribute $15,000 to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Charitable Service Trust, a national organization, based on his service in the Army and his desire to help veterans in need. The DAV Charitable Service Trust supports physical and psychological rehabilitation programs, aids and shelters homeless veterans, and meets the particular needs of veterans with specific disabilities – such as amputation and blindness.
“We are pleased to accept this donation and thank Kinnser Software for its leadership in joining with individuals and corporations nationwide in support of our veterans,” said Richard E. Marbes, Chairman of the DAV Charitable Service Trust.
In addition to its corporate donation to veterans, Kinnser Software is supporting the local Central Texas community with a $10,000 donation to the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. The Capital Area Food Bank of Texas nourishes hungry Central Texans by providing food and grocery products to more than 350 partner agencies in 21 Central Texas counties.
“With a more than 60 percent increase in need for emergency food assistance in Central Texas since this time last year, support like this is more important than ever. We greatly appreciate that Kinnser Software chose us for this generous gift,” said David Davenport, President & CEO of the Capital Area Food Bank.
Hester shared his thoughts about the donation, “We are committed to improving the quality of life for members of our local community and giving back to those who have honorably served our nation in the US armed forces. We understand the value of helping people recover from illness or life changing events. The home health agencies we support provide these types of services everyday throughout the U.S. We hope these contributions will benefit veterans nationwide and our local Austin neighbors to live healthier and happier lives. These donations are our first steps in an ongoing philanthropic relationship with organizations helping those in need.”
