Zetron donates $4,500 and 79 pounds of food to Hopelink

Zetron, a mission-critical communications solutions provider in Redmond, donated $4,500 to this year’s Hopelink Holiday Food Drive.

The contribution includes donations from Zetron employees and matching funds from the company. Zetron employees also donated 79 pounds of food to Hopelink and 30 gifts to Hopelink’s Giving Tree program for children from 1 month to 18 years of age.

Hopelink is a nonprofit organization with a location in Redmond that offers an array of programs that assist families in crisis and help achieve self-sufficiency.

“I am very proud that, once again, Zetron and its employees have acted very generously to extend help to those in our community who are in need,” said Zetron president and CEO, Brent Dippie. “This comes at a time of year when that need can be felt most acutely. It is an important reminder of some of the most meaningful aspects of the season.”

Hopelink accepts donations throughout the year. For more information or to make a donation, go to www.hopelink.org.
