Hyundai presents technical support

Vernon Hyundai has decided to donate computer hardware to the Salvation Army food bank

Feeding the hungry requires behind the scenes technical support.

Vernon Hyundai has decided to donate computer hardware to the Salvation Army food bank as it replaces its computer systems every three years.

“It’s about giving back and being part of the community,” said Nathan Mackintosh, Vernon Hyundai sales manager.

“The Salvation Army does a great job in the community. We wanted to partner with them in a big way.”

Three business-class computers also ensure the food bank can better process Christmas food hamper requests.

Computers allow the food bank to maintain clients’ files, track inventory and ensure the entire system is secure.

“One of the challenges is we don’t have the budget to update our computer system,” said Capt. Jean-Curtis Plante, with the Salvation Army.

“With help from Hyundai, we can put our money towards helping the community and not information technology upgrades.”

Hyundai has also replaced the food bank’s 20-year-old phone system with new technology.

Plante is pleased with the multi-year support from Vernon Hyundai.

“Their desire to help exceeds far beyond  information technology hardware. They are extremely generous and committed to this community,” he said.
