Bainbridge-Decatur YMCA Gives Kids a Homework Haven
CHARLOTTE, NC – June 25, 2013 – Waypoint, a global leader in Information Technology Managed Services and Solutions, recently worked with the Bainbridge-Decatur YMCA and its other volunteer resources to make sure that Jim Holton, the Bainbridge-Decatur YMCA’s sports director, had what he needed to complete his brainchild – a computer lab specifically designed for kids to use in doing homework. Waypoint became acquainted with the project through Holton and provided behind-the-scenes financial support to ensure that the IT needs for the lab were met.
“We’re elated that we’ve been able to have a role in expanding the availability of technology to this group of kids. Projects like this have so many underlying components that just can’t be donated so we felt that through financial support we could be engaged even without being on-site to put the computer lab in place,” comments Tony Shannon, VP/Partner of Waypoint. “It is important that these kids have the tools they need to learn and to become adults who can enjoy contributing back to their community one day.”
Waypoint is headquartered in Charlotte, NC, and has offices in key cities on the East Coast, including Atlanta, to provide businesses and organizations with expert IT services.
“Our headquarters is in Charlotte, however, our clients and IT resources are located up and down the East Coast and in many areas around the globe. It is important to us that we support the communities where our clients serve their customers,” adds Waypoint President Dan Wilson. “Supporting educational resources for area children helps to ensure that our clients can continue hiring qualified employees locally. Our role is small and fills a very basic need, but it makes a difference to real families immediately and to businesses as these kids grow up.”
