Earlier this week ServiceMaster announced they are donating 12 new Dell laptop computers to United Way of the Mid-South to help United Way with staff training needs in 2012.
Around the United Way office, some employees are referring to this generous gift as ServiceMaster’s “Twelve Laptops Of Christmas.”
Dan Marks, Chief Information Officer at ServiceMaster and Heather Wilson, ServiceMaster’s Communications Manager, made the announcement during a presentation of this year’s outstanding ServiceMaster fundraising campaign results for United Way.
Wilson noted that her knowledgable coworkers in ServiceMaster’s Information Technology department got involved and negotiated with Dell to make sure the laptops come with a warranty, which is very important for the United Way team.
“We’re committed to increasing United Way’s capacity to serve our community by increasing staff’s technology skills. Our new, internal ‘Learning Place’ program will use these 12 laptops to help United Way staff members achieve an even higher level of technology literacy, helping their work with their for-profit corporate and business counterparts,” said Loretta Hurt, United Way’s project manager for the Learning Place initiative.
ServiceMaster is one of the world’s largest residential and commercial networks. The Fortune 500 company is headquartered in Memphis, TN.
