Cisco Partners Giving Back this Holiday Season (and Throughout the Year)

December 7, 2011 at 11:26 am PST

While some of us are fortunate enough to have our basic needs covered and can focus on the joys of the holidays, there’s no denying that there are so many others who don’t even have that and could use a little bit of help.

At Cisco, we’ve partnered with several non-profit organizations to provide resources and services to those in need. Some of the organizations include: NetHope, Community Voice Mail, Habitat for Humanity International, Tech Soup Global, and St. Bernard Project. Whether it’s donating through time, money, or sweat like the Partner Summit 2011 team did in the 9th ward in New Orleans, giving back selflessly is a reward in and of itself.

We knew we couldn’t be the only ones who felt passionate about giving back. So, we set out to learn how our partners are giving back this holiday season.

Force 3
Force 3 Vice President of Marketing Krissy Edell Kelley tells us on our Facebook page that they are supporting Toys for Tots, a charity that “delivers, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

Dimension Data
Got Mo? Mo what? Moustache that is! For the month of Movember (the month formerly known as November) Dimension Data supports a moustache growing charity event that raises funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Check out the Mo Bros of Dimension Data.

Not only have our partners found ways to give back during this holiday season, they also found ways to give back throughout the year. See how our partners gave back this year while having a bit of fun. Read More »

So here’s a list of some interesting Cisco partner happenings from the past couple of weeks.
