For Third Year, Global Backup Solutions Leader Backs Up United Way
Effort to Make Holidays Happy for Hometown Families in Need
MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Sepaton, Inc. headquartered in Marlborough, Massachusetts and maker of
the world’s fastest backup and recovery solutions, once again delivered
on its corporate commitment to giving back to the local community.
As part of the annual Hope for the Holidays program, Sepaton has
partnered with United Way, reaching out to help ten low-income families
and 28 children in the Marlborough area. Families previously identified
as having extremely limited resources while struggling to meet their
most basic needs of food and clothing are this year’s recipients of
Sepaton’s generous financial and gift contributions to the Hope for the
Holidays program. In addition to toys and gifts, Sepaton is also giving
each family gift cards for groceries and food.
Earlier this year, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Amy Lipton, on
behalf of Sepaton and its employees, accepted the “Good Neighbor Award”
before hundreds of United Way supporters and community leaders. At the
award ceremony, Ms. Lipton expressed how honored she was to receive such
a special award on behalf of the generous and giving employees of
Sepaton. “Being able to connect with these families and children is a
highlight of our year,” said Ms. Lipton, “and it is our pleasure to
support this important annual program.”
Mike Thompson, President and CEO of Sepaton, Inc. believes that although
it is Sepaton’s ongoing corporate responsibility to be a good neighbor
and partner in the local Marlborough community, he sees the outreach
work they are doing as being something significantly more.
“Giving back while being a good neighbor is an essential pillar of our
corporate responsibility mission,” said Mr. Thompson, “but being able to
help individual families makes it very personal and meaningful for all
of us. As a company and as area residents, we are very much a part of
this community and want to make sure our neighbors’ needs are being met.
At this time of year, this is something we can do to assist those who
need our help.”
Lisa Kenney, Sepaton employee and organizer of Sepaton’s community
outreach initiatives, believes that Sepaton’s giving back mission is so
successful because of overwhelming company-wide employee engagement.
Both Mr. Thompson and Ms. Lipton agree.
“Throughout our company, Sepaton employees share the same vision; we all
want to bring hope and happiness to our neighbors during the holiday
season,” said Ms. Lipton. “Without hesitation, everyone wanted to
participate which is why we were able to do more than fulfill the wish
lists for these children. In fact, instead of each child receiving one
gift from their wish lists, Sepaton employees made it possible for every
child we “adopted” to receive more gifts. That brings the holiday spirit
home for all of us.”
