Chicago-area non-profit organizations were invited to select an award from a list of technology services provided by onShore Networks. Organizations that registered were encouraged to spread the word to gather votes for their organization. The contest ran for sixteen weeks. After the votes were tallied, onShore Networks awarded free technology services to the following three local organizations:
The Children’s Clinic (childrenscliniciws.org): Sponsored by the Oak Park River Forest Infant Welfare Society, the Children’s Clinic delivers top quality dental, medical and social services to children from infancy to age 18. The clinic serves thousands of children from 50 Cook County west suburban communities and Chicago. The Children’s Clinic, an ongoing user of onShore Networks’s Spectrum Remote Managed IT Service, will be selecting from the other award packages: onGuard Managed Firewall, Colocation Service, Internet Connectivity, or Phone System.
i.c.stars (icstars.org): i.c.stars provides a rigorous technology-based workforce development and leadership training program for low-income adults, and connects them with career opportunities through its partner organizations. i.c.stars will be receiving six months of onGuard Managed Firewall service. onShore Networks will provide and manage a firewall appliance to protect the organization’s network from external threats.
Spark Program (sparkprogram.org): Spark is a national nonprofit that provides life-changing apprenticeships to middle school students from disadvantaged communities. Spark’s one-on-one workplace apprenticeships empower young people to succeed in their education and beyond. Spark Chicago will be receiving a new phone system that can serve up to 20 users. onShore Networks will provide the server and telephone handsets, the configuration of the system to meet Spark’s needs, and six months of service.
These three worthy organizations will continue their important work with a little help from onShore Networks. Community response to the giveaway has been very positive:
"What a wonderful thing to do. Thanks from a grateful community member."
"Thank you so much from a single mom whose four foster and adopted kids receive their medical and dental care from the Children’s Clinic in Oak Park."
