Vocantas Challenges Ottawa High Tech to Share Locally This Christmas
Ottawa, Ontario – December 15, 2015 – Vocantas, a proudly owned and operated Ottawa high tech firm, challenges other Ottawa-based high tech firms to share locally this Christmas season.
Vocantas is proud to sponsor the Kanata Food Cupboard each year by adopting a family through the annual Christmas drive. Last year the Kanata Food Cupboard helped more than 400 families put on a Christmas through its Christmas Adopt-A-Family program. Now collecting gifts and food for its third year, Vocantas helps one family through both corporate donations and employees giving directly to a family in need. The food and gifts are collected in the month of December and given to the adoptive family through the Kanata Food Cupboard.
Vocantas believes in giving back to the local community and encourages other Ottawa high tech firms to do the same. Vocantas employees enjoy the opportunity to make a difference right in their own community and positively impact the residents where they work and live. Throughout the year Vocantas corporately supports three additional organizations, Drug and Addictions Magazine, Missing Kids and the Ride for Dad.
In May each year, more than 250 men in Ottawa receive free PSA tests courtesy of Ride For Dad and The Ottawa Hospital Foundation. Vocantas proudly sponsored this fourth annual event ensuring Ottawa men have access to free PSA tests, screening for Prostate Cancer. Following the free clinic, Vocantas used its flagship product, CallAssure, to contact each patient in a real human voice through its automated telephone system. Using information in the PSA clinic's database the system dynamically contacted each individual and provided a confidential, interactive experience to ensure the patient fully understood the results information given.
Vocantas is a proud supporter of Drugs and Awareness magazine, a publication dedicated to saving lives by helping kids grow up healthy and drug free. This outstanding resource material is acclaimed by Police services, Medical professionals, drug abuse counselors and teachers as a serious tool in the war on drugs that is going on in our schools and on our neighborhood streets. Vocantas sponsors printed copies of this publication which go directly to local high schools to augment the curriculum related to drug awareness and prevention.
Missing Kids Magazine is instrumental in the location and recovery of missing children for families throughout Canada. Their numerous safety initiatives are constantly being expanded upon to help ensure the prevention of future missing children. Last year alone 50,492 children were reported missing throughout Canada. Vocantas proudly supports this national publication with the sponsorship of printed copies of the publication being distributed in the Ottawa area.
Vocantas is committed to making a difference in the community where we live and work – we encourage other high tech companies to share in their local community this Christmas season.
