IBM is pleased to present to the Writers’ League of Texas a donation of two Thinkpad notebook computers, valued over $3,200.
For more than 85 years, a unique combination of IBM technology, resources and employee community involvement has set an unmatched standard for corporate citizenship. IBM calls this activity the On Demand Community. Through On Demand Community, IBM is able to contribute technology and expertise to build and sustain strong communities.
“Our research shows that as much as communities appreciate donations of money and equipment, local agencies and schools are most interested in receiving volunteers who can share their skills and intellectual capital,” said Stanley Litow, vice president of IBM Corporate Citizenship and Corporate Affairs.
To that end, IBM Web editor, Harrison Cheung, has been active as a new board member with a special interest in developing the WLT’s use of the Web.
WLT executive director Cyndi Hughes noted, “The Writers’ League of Texas is delighted to receive the generous gift of two ThinkPads from IBM. As a small nonprofit, we’re always counting pennies for our IT needs, and the two new laptops will allow us to better serve our members and the Texas writing community, both from our office and on-site at our events. Thank you, IBM!”
