OEC Donates Computer to Non-Profit Food Pantry in Cleveland

CLEVELAND, OH, November 9, 2017 – OEConnection LLC (OEC), a leading technology employer in Northeast Ohio, donated a computer, as well as the time needed for set-up and installation, to All Faiths Pantry (AFP), a non-profit organization which delivers nutritious groceries to local low-income seniors and those with physical disabilities. The organization has been using a refurbished computer for years, and frequently experienced issues with insufficient computer memory, making even simple tasks, such as printing a document, very time-consuming. AFP Board Member, OEC Enterprise Director Sarah Truman, noticed the outdated technology and decided to help.

“Giving back to our community is one of the core values of OEC,” said Kathy Golden, OEC Chief Technology Officer. “When we heard about the need for a new computer at All Faiths Pantry, it was a no-brainer for us to donate it to them. We hope it makes a difference in the day-to-day operations of this important organization.”

OEC associates Brandt Ward and Steve Yontz, who work in the company’s IT Operations department, set up the new computer at AFP, using company-paid volunteer hours to do so.

All Faiths Pantry Executive Director John Visnauskas said, “This computer upgrade donation from will be a big help in serving our mission. We are very grateful for OEC's generosity, not only in contributing the upgraded system, but expertly setting it all up too! Community partners like OEC make what All Faiths Pantry does possible.”
