FUNDS HELP DOMESTIC ABUSE VICTIMS, COLLEGE-BOUND STUDENTS, AND LOCAL LIBRARY
Information Transport Solutions, Inc. (ITS) donated $30,000 to three local charities at a check presentation event held at the company’s Wetumpka, Ala. headquarters yesterday morning.
The Family Sunshine Center, a Montgomery, Ala.-based charity dedicated to ending family violence and sexual assault, received $20,000 to support families in a seven county area. The Jason Michael Hilty Memorial Scholarship, a college fund for graduating Wetumpka High School students, received $5,000. Lastly, the Alabama Parent Education Center-The Imagination Library of Elmore County, a group that provides free books to preschoolers, received $5,000.
“We feel a very strong responsibility as a company to advocate for good and give back,” said ITS Founder Tomi Selby. “Our employees volunteer their time in the community, and they work hard to put on our annual charity golf tournament, which makes these donations possible.”
Yesterday’s donations were raised at ITS’s 8th Annual Charity Golf Tournament, held on May 22, 2014 at the Robert Trent Jones golf course in Prattville, Alabama. 100% of the profits from the golf tournament were donated to charity. ITS employees and business partners also contributed their time in support of the tournament.
“The word ‘integrity’ is in the ITS company mission. We believe that goes beyond just technology and also involves community involvement,” stated ITS President Quincy Minor. “Because of our employees’ hard work, more families and children will be protected, healed, and educated.”
