ConnectWise, a Tampa, Fla.-based software developer for IT service providers, VARs, ISVs and MSPs, is celebrating the season by donating holiday gifts and meals to local children and families in need through the nonprofit Success 4 Kids & Families.

This year, the company joined several other Bay Area companies in teaming up with the organization to give to nearly 500 families. In addition to wish lists filled out by children and then passed on to donors, this year a full holiday dinner was added to complete the holiday experience.

“Companies have ‘dug a little deeper’ this year adding more kids and meals,” said Clara Reynolds, executive director of Success 4 Kids & Families, in a statement. “ConnectWise really hit a home run for the local kids adopting 228 kids for gifts and donating over approximately 100 meals this year.”

Joining ConnectWise in giving to the cause were Microsoft, Tribridge, First Citrus, Bouchard Insurance, and many individual community donors and members of the Success 4 Kids & Families board of directors.

“We are proud to partner with S4KF again this year to provide gifts and a meal to those families in need in the Tampa Bay area,” stated ConnectWise CEO Arnie Bellini. “We hope our contributions and support can help make the holidays happier for people in our community.”
