Avatel Technologies 2012 Giving Back Program – Together, we can make a difference!

What good is success in life, if at the end of the day you have not made a difference in the lives of others? Giving something back is fundamental to the way we conduct our business. As successful members of the community, we have a responsibility to contribute to the common good.

The Avatel team does its part each day to make a difference and give back to those whom need it most. Giving back to the community is an important way of expressing humility, kindness, love, and gratitude for all that we have been given in our lives.

Giving back to the community is part of our core values.  We have a strong commitment to making a difference in the communities in which we reside, and we believe that the best way to encourage other businesses to give back is to do more of it ourselves.

In December 2011, we announced our 2012 “Giving Back” Program. Avatel will donate one Avaya IP Office phone system each quarter, including project management, implementation and training to a non-profit or charitable institution.

The Avatel employees will take part in the selection of each quarter recipient. They feel very strongly about supporting others in need and make it a standard part of both their personal and professional responsibilities. By having their voices heard, they are able to make a personal connection to those in need and see the genuine impact on the local community by their choices.

Non-profits are a vital and important fiber in the fabric of our communities. In this economy, many nonprofits are coping with a significant reduction in funding, forcing them to count every penny.  Communication is critical to the successful operation of any nonprofit and this includes an effective phone system that meets the organization’s needs.

We are so excited to announce our first quarter recipient, Bay Life Academy, the largest private non-profit school in the county that specializes in the unique needs of children with learning disabilities. BLA serves students in grades K-8; providing a positive learning environment for students with Specific Learning Disabilities, Autism, Asperger’s, Speech and Language disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Emotional/Social disorders and Cognitive and/or Developmental delays.

We are honored to play a role in helping nonprofit organizations such as Bay Life Academy.  It is a gratifying form of validation of our success as a communication solution provider to help our community. We believe that making a difference is something all of us can do.

We look forward to giving back to those worthy non-profits and charitable organizations throughout the year and ultimately providing meaningful support to those who need it most.

Together, we can make a difference!

Jamie Wood, Avatel EVP
