MicroTek Donates $26,000 to Charitable Organizations
CHICAGO, IL (December 2012) - MicroTek, a leader in the delivery of training room rentals and customized training solutions, donated a total of $26,000 this holiday season to charitable organizations across the U.S. The donations were made through the company’s benevolence account, the Dave Ironside Fund. Established in 2001, the Fund serves as a way for MicroTek to give back to the communities where it conducts business by helping local organizations that are in need of support.
“Since philanthropy has always played a major role in our corporate culture, we are thrilled to be able to make this contribution. Every year, our employees get excited to handpick the organizations that will be receiving a donation. We all want to make a positive impact in our communities and this is a great way to accomplish that,” said Mark Clausen, MicroTek president.
Dave Ironside was one of the original employees of MicroTek. As part of his personal outreach, he worked with troubled and needy kids, many times taking them into his own home as they sorted out their lives. “We are pleased to continue to remember Dave with this fund,” said Clausen.
