NJVC Donates $50,000 To USO In First Year Of National Philanthropic Partnership

Information Technology Company and Employees Raise Money for the USO through Variety of Fundraising Programs in 2012

CHANTILLY, Va., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  NJVC ®, an information technology solutions provider headquartered in northern Virginia, is proud to announce that the company and its employees raised $50,000 in 2012 in support of the USO (United Service Organizations )—the first year of this national philanthropic partnership.

"NJVC is honored to have the USO as its national philanthropic partner because its mission to support the nation's service men and women is perfectly aligned with the reason why NJVC was founded," said Jody Tedesco, NJVC president. "I and the other members of the NJVC leadership team salute the employees who not only participated in a number of fundraising opportunities in 2012, but who also volunteered on several occasions in support of USO programs in both the Washington, DC, and St. Louis metropolitan areas."

Throughout 2012, the company held a variety of events to raise money for the USO of Metropolitan Washington and the USO of Missouri—including golf tournaments in the Washington and St. Louis metropolitan areas, "Jeans for GIs" (employees donated money for the privilege of wearing jeans to work every day for one month), ice cream socials and raffle sales (e.g., sporting tickets and computer and television equipment). NJVC employees also donated items on the holiday wish lists of children of active-duty, junior-enlisted military families through Project USO Elf. NJVC sponsored 50 children whose parents are based in the Washington metro region. Employees in St. Louis also donated hundreds of requested items for the USO of Missouri Soldiers Left Behind holiday care-package program.

"We are so grateful to the employees of NJVC for supporting our Soldiers Left Behind program," said Kathy O'Connor, USO of Missouri executive director. "Without their assistance, more than 200 soldiers who were unable to go home for the holidays would not have received a gift bag on Christmas morning. The smiles from the soldiers as they open their gift bags, truly brings home the meaning of the holiday season."

"Thanks to the tremendous support of companies like NJVC, we were able to provide holiday gifts to more than 1,400 military children living in the Washington-Baltimore region," said Elaine Rogers, USO of Metropolitan Washington president and CEO. "We're extremely grateful to NJVC for all the company does to show support for our military members and their families, and for helping us make their holidays a little brighter."

NJVC supports the USO under its corporate giving program, NJVCares. This program also financially backs local organizations in the communities where its employees work and live that support youth education initiatives, particularly those involved in science, technology, engineering and math. STEM organizations help assure "continued U.S. competitiveness in the global technology market and the future for the IT workforce," Tedesco said.
