TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ConnectWise, developer of the leading service management software designed exclusively for IT service providers, VARS, ISVs and MSPs, is continuing to support the organization Success 4 Kids & Families (S4KF), providing gifts and meals to local children and families in need this holiday season.
Each year, ConnectWise teams up with Success 4 Kids & Families along with several other organizations in the Tampa Bay area to donate holiday gifts and meals to over 400 children and 200 local families in need. ConnectWise works closely with Success 4 Kids & Families' case management team who gathers "wish lists" from needy children which are then passed along to the donors and fulfilled. In addition to providing needy children with substantial holiday gifts, last year ConnectWise and partner organizations began donating a full holiday dinner for families to prepare in their homes – a tradition that will continue this year.
"We are so grateful for the continued support from ConnectWise this holiday season and are overwhelmed by their generosity," said Clara Reynolds, executive director of Success 4 Kids & Families. "Thanks to ConnectWise and other local Tampa Bay companies, more needy families than ever before will receive gifts and holiday meals this year."
This year, ConnectWise adopted 230 kids for gifts and donated more than 100 meals.
"Our partnership with Success 4 Kids & Families is something that we are very proud of," said Arnie Bellini, ConnectWise CEO. "As members of the Tampa Bay community, we are passionate about giving back to those in need which is why this partnership is so important to us. Each year, we strive to donate more holiday gifts and meals to needy families in hopes of creating a happier holiday season for members of our community."
In addition to ConnectWise, other local participating companies include Microsoft, Tribridge, First Citrus Bank, Bouchard Insurance and MacDill A.F.B. Many individual community donors and Success 4 Kids & Families board of directors provided holiday gifts for children and families as well.
