Centre Technologies Provides In-Kind Donation for Local Make-A-Wish Recipient

HOUSTON, TEXAS – May 3, 2023 – Centre Technologies partners with Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana to provide an in-kind gaming system donation for local wish kid, Samuel.

Centre Technologies proved they're not just a solution provider for businesses, but an active provider in the community as well. After working with Make-A-Wish Texas Gulf Coast and Louisiana to cultivate their shared desire for helping surrounding communities, Centre was able to fulfill a child's wish this past Saturday by providing an in-kind donation of 2 curved monitors, web cam, microphone, and a computer gaming system. This in-kind donation is the first Centre has granted through Make-A-Wish. 

Centre's goal of participating in this in-kind donation is to intimately know and provide for those in need in the local neighborhoods they're a part of. Centre-Blog-Make-a-Wish-Donation-2023-Recipient-Samuel

"Bottom line, I love technology and I want others who love technology to have the chance to see everything it offers.  Being involved with Make-A-Wish is giving Centre the opportunity to enable peoples' dreams of utilizing technology to its fullest.  This motivates our passion for people and those we get to interact with.  I firmly believe we get to  give back to the people we care so much about and that brings a smile to my face," says Chris Pace, CEO, on the importance of community outreach. 

Centre Technologies aims to align themselves with Make-A-Wish's core values. This opportunity stems from a shared desire to cultivate a passion for spreading positivity to local families in Texas. 

“We are grateful for the support of Centre Technologies in bringing Samuel’s wish to life.  Make-A-Wish is truly a community-based organization, and it is incredible to see the power of a wish multiply when we work with companies that are also committed to making a tangible, positive difference for local families.  Wishes bring hope, strength, and joy to everyone involved, and Centre Technologies helped make Samuel’s wish day truly unforgettable."

Furthermore, this opportunity had a positive impact on Centre Technologies' employees, as it reinforced their inherent responsibility and desire for giving back to those in need.

 "'Community up front, Business behind.' Obviously, there are benefits for the business associated with working with the community. Too often, businesses focus on those returns. While we are just starting this outreach program, the organization is approaching the effort primarily focused on doing the community work personally.  It is beyond exciting to be a part of realizing what focusing even a fraction of that passion to helping others could accomplish," says Beau Nichols, the Onboarding Delivery Manager at Centre. 

Their in-kind donation goes beyond supporting the community as a whole; it ignites their passion for uplifting the lives of individuals within it. Additionally, for Centre employees, opportunities like this to reach those in need is the cornerstone of Centre's culture. 

Brianna Fajohn, People Development Consultant, intimates that "We want to give back, we want to spread our passion for our people and technology wherever we can, and we want to always be involved" which Seth Brown, Customer Experience Consultant for Centre, confirms. "I believe that Centre has a responsibility to give back to the communities in which we operate. We have the resources to create positivity, and it is duty to do so," he says.

Centre plans to continue working with Make-a-Wish as well as other nonprofit and community efforts. 

"We are honored and privileged to have the opportunity to do this for others and I applaud the foundation for making things happen for people all around us.  Thank you to Make-A-Wish for including us in making dreams a reality,"
