To say that “2020 has been a challenging year” doesn’t do it justice. During times like these, it’s important to celebrate the inherent good in people and our capacity to show compassion and generosity for those who are less fortunate. This year, I am so proud to acknowledge the efforts of our IQ Wired employees, their families and our Partners. They created a positive impact in our community by volunteering their time, energy, and money in an effort to assist those in need.
- In October the IQ Wired Giving Committee, Nadia Wilson, Jeff Stegeman Kelly Gadden, Sonya Homolka, led the charge and partnered with C3-Colorado (a Colorado nonprofit) to coordinate a Device Drive in an effort to provide computers for Colorado students who didn’t have the necessary computer equipment for remote learning. IQ Wired, with our partners, have donated 100+ gently used or unneeded computers to kids in need in our community.
- During the holiday season, Sean McCarthy from the IQ Wired Activity Committee, coordinated a holiday gift giving drive for the Salvation Army Angel Tree to help buy gifts for children and Senior citizens who otherwise wouldn’t have any gifts this Holiday Season.
- The Giving Committee coordinated a charity drive on Colorado Gives Day (12/8) maximizing our contributions with matching funds made possible by grants provided by local companies. IQ Wired and our generous employees raised $9,680 to donate to 35 non-profits desperately in need of funds to continue their efforts to assist the community. A large portion of the funding went to assist Bienvenidos Food Bank to feed families in need in North East Denver and the Emergency Family Assistance Program (EFA) which provides a safety net for families in times of need allowing them to get back on their feet.
Thank you to our employees and our partners for your kindness and generosity this season. Your efforts demonstrate your commitment to making the world a better place for us all.
