Datto Launches Charity Committee

By: Chris Brunau

2016 will be a BIG year for Datto. We’re excited to release new technologies, expand our geographical footprint and continue working closely with our partners to help them build successful companies. But beyond all of the typical day-to-day business, Datto has a brand new initiative we’re launching this year that we’re incredibly excited about - the Datto charity committee.

Datto’s charity committee will be tasked with organizing all of Datto’s community events and efforts. This year Datto organized countless events to better serve our local communities such as a Thanksgiving food drive that fed nearly 1,000 families and a holiday toy drive that brought in more than 500 toys and roughly $10,000 in donations.

Aside from toy drives and food drives, the committee will also organize donations, sponsorships, and charitable races or walks. The committee will work closely with Datto employees to find out what they would like to be involved in and then push those community service initiatives.

Nicholas Hagen, Midwest Sales Manager at Datto accepted the nomination of committee chair.

“It’s great that I can be involved in this as part of my job. Charity is a big thing for me. I’m very involved in various organizations in my personal life, whether it’s the homeless shelter in Bridgeport, or the animal shelter. One of the things that is most important to me is helping children. I want the kids to have a nice meal and a place to stay,” said Hagen.

Hagen is happy that people will see another side of Datto and how much our employees care about giving back and working with our community.

“This is just another thing with Datto. People see our offices, how we’re able to dress and be ourselves on a daily basis. This is just one of the ways that shows how great it is to work here. Datto’s putting their money forward to allow us to get involved in causes that are important to us. I’ve been with the company over three years, and regardless of how big the company has grown, it’s never lost the heart it had from day one” said Hagen.
