Milpitas, Calif. — July 18, 2007 — AVerMedia® Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of digital multimedia and presentation technology, recently started a program where one day out of every month employees donate their time to help less fortunate children at the InnVision Georgia Travis Center, a San Francisco South Bay Area shelter for women and children that is dedicated to empowering homeless, at-risk families and individuals by helping them to find …the Way Home. Beginning on June 29, 2007 AVerMedia employees came prepared with books, nutritious snacks and smiles to brighten the day of many young children.

For the next year AVerMedia will be donating one afternoon out of each month interacting with the children at the shelter and playing games, while at the same time maintaining a healthy and educational environment; however AVerMedia provides more than just a fun afternoon. Every visit will also bring nutritious snacks, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, which are provided to everyone by participating AVerMedia employees. Furthermore, Scholastic, Inc. has generously donated hundreds of books that AVerMedia employees not only read to the children, but also give each child a book of their own to keep, while personalizing it with their own name inside. Tony Calega, Marketing Specialist at Scholastic Professional Magazines said, "Scholastic always jumps at the opportunity to provide books to children who cannot afford them. It is so important for every single child to have their own favorite book they can read."

Although InnVision receives donations and support throughout the community, they were overcome with excitement to hear of a company who not only wanted to donate books, but to donate time. Jaynie Neveras, Community Relations Coordinator says, "It´s wonderful to have a company such as AVerMedia come to us and want to spend an afternoon with these children. We are so appreciative of the generosity of time, energy and heart of their team. The children love the visits and the gift of reading!"
Although this program is designed to give back to the community, seeing the positive effect on the shelter´s children makes the experience just as rewarding to AVerMedia participants.
