k-12 Education and Children’s Charities Logicalis US works diligently to identify local needs where its time, resources and talents can best serve others and make a lasting impact. The Logicalis US corporate social investment efforts primarily related to providing monetary donations of varying levels as well as Logicalis US employees being involved in a variety of community efforts.
  • Toys for Tots: During a local Salvation Army/Marine Corps Toys for Tots event, the Logicalis team from Bellevue, Washington, helped sort mounds of donated toys into age and gender-appropriate groups destined to become the twinkle in the eye of underprivileged children throughout the Seattle area
  • Food for Thought: In Arizona, the hunger rate stands at nearly 18%, higher than the national average, a statistic that touched the hearts of the dedicated office staff in Logicalis’ Tempe office. Together with associates from Cisco’s State, Local and Education ("SLED") division, Logicalis team members helped St Mary’s Food Bank pack 20 pallets of food – nearly 200 000 meals – for distribution throughout the Tempe and Phoenix areas
  • Bicycles Galore: The ATIG team donated funds to help a local partner purchase and assemble bicycles that will benefit children throughout a number of Ohio communities
  • International Relief: Itself a worldwide organisation, Logicalis US wanted to give something back to the global community by donating to Doctors without Borders, an international medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency medical aid in over 60 countries
  • Technology Solutions: Just as business and IT leaders rely on Logicalis to help them make smart technology decisions, volunteer organisations around the world rely on TechSoup to help them gain access to the technology and information they need to effect change in their organisations and the populations they serve. As a leader in the IT space, Logicalis gladly donated money to help TechSoup put technology solutions in the hands of non-profits, foundations and libraries that need capacity-building resources around the globe
  • A Holiday Meal: For one in seven people in northern Illinois, a special holiday meal is outside the budget – and sadly, out of reach. At Thanksgiving time, the Downers Grove Logicalis office decided to help make this holiday one to remember for thousands of families throughout a 13-county area. In co-operation with northern Illinois Food Bank, the Logicalis team packaged 8.5 tonnes of potatoes and squash as part of a traditional holiday meal to be delivered to 14 000 local families.

Make a difference – clean drinking water at schools in Mbeya, Tanzania

Clean drinking water is unfortunately not available in every country. In Tanzania, a water filter is absolutely necessary. Children who will take part in this project will receive more education about school hygiene and safe drinking water. They learn how to use water filters and “tippy taps” to wash their hands. This way they will have the facility to drink as much clean water as possible which helps them to be healthier. In addition to placing water filters and tippy taps at schools, the project also educates entrepreneurs who can sell water filters. This initiative makes sure that the entire community can benefit from this project.

The contribution for this project is part of a programme called “Wings and Roots”. For every coffee bag Logicalis SMC buys/uses, “Wings and Roots” will donate a small amount to a chosen microproject in Tanzania.

Follow our project at: http://wingsroots.nl/project/veilig-drinkwater-op-school-in-mbeya-tanzania/

In 2016, Logicalis SMC will help schools and communities in Mbeya (Tanzania) and show them how to use water filters and therefore drink more clean water.
