The Stano Foundation worked in partnership with Tech Data Corporation and their TDPatriots to fill 300 care packages for our deployed troops. Not only did Tech Data host a donation drive to help obtain items for the packages but generously sponsored the shipping cost of ALL 300 PACKAGES! What made this a special event was that Tech Data deployed family members would be receiving some of these packages. We got to video chat with one of the recipients and he was so excited for what we were doing and couldn't wait for the packages to arrive. This was an amazing feeling. Every year we are not only grateful for what Tech Data does for our organization, but for our troops. This company truly goes above and beyond to give back to so many in the community. We look forward to continuing to grow this partnership and can't wait for our next event!
“Tech Data’s commitment to our military service personnel is overwhelming and never is that more apparent than during our annual care package drive for the Stano Foundation. Led by the Tech Data Patriots group, 300 boxes were shipped to various locations around the globe, extending our corporate citizenry. And this year I was very proud that we received packages from Tech Data offices outside of Clearwater to send their deployed family members overseas.”
- Cal Jackson, Director, Diversity & Inclusion, Tech Data
“These care packages provide more than just toiletries and snacks, they are a message to the men and women deployed that we’re thinking about them and the sacrifices they’ve made. I know from personal experience, it’s a small gesture that goes a long way.”
- Ryan McKenzie, Senior Manager, Operations, Tech Data and former USAF veteran
