LEWISTON, MAINE (January 20, 2015) – SymQuest announced today that it has awarded $25,000 to New Beginnings, a Lewiston nonprofit serving homeless youth and families, as part of SymQuest’s annual SymPowered Extreme Office Makeover. The network and document solutions provider also awarded an additional $5,000 to SeniorsPlus, a Lewiston based nonprofit serving the needs of local seniors, and adults with disabilities. The funds will be used to assist both nonprofits with IT infrastructure needs.
"SymQuest’s support comes at an excellent time – it allows us to focus on developing our programming rather than on our technology,” said Bob Rowe, Executive Director of New Beginnings. “We can really concentrate on the young people that come to us from across the state."
Launched by SymQuest in 2008, the SymPowered Extreme Office Makeover was created to support local nonprofits with business and information technology needs. Historically, funds have been used to add new servers, workstations and multi-function copiers to increase business continuity. By utilizing this technology nonprofits can focus on what they do best, serving others.
Larry Sudbay, President and CEO of SymQuest, commented, "Giving back to our community is paramount in SymQuest’s mission to build mutually profitable relationships. We believe for a nonprofit to be effective they must have the necessary tools to do business. At SymQuest we're honored to assist New Beginnings and SeniorsPlus with obtaining these tools, and we look forward to their continued success in benefiting our community."
