Venafi, a global cybersecurity platform developer, has gifted $10,000 to LifeSavers Foundation to support our work and our mission.
Venafi provides innovative cybersecurity solutions to enterprise businesses and companies all over the world, including many of the Global 5000. In addition to their dedication to protecting their clients, Venafi is highly passionate about supporting local communities. Their executive team researched a number of nonprofits across northern Texas before choosing LifeSavers.
Recently, 120 Venafi engineers from around the world gathered in Dallas for a meeting. While they were in town, the Venafi team met with LifeSavers leaders to present the gift.
Venafi’s gift will go toward LifeSavers’ key mission activities, including:
The Doctor Spot
The Doctor Spot is a mobile health clinic that travels throughout Dallas County to administer primary care. Many of the Doctor Spot’s patients are women and children in need, especially those without insurance or access to reliable transportation. The Doctor Spot offers well visits, sports physicals, sick checks, immunizations, and other types of care. The Doctor Spot also provides asthma care and medication, such as albuterol and prednisolone, for children in need.
Mobile Sonogram Unit
Like the Doctor Spot, the mobile sonogram unit is a retrofitted vehicle that travels to patients in need. The unit is equipped to provide free sonograms to pregnant women and also gives out pregnancy tests.
Items for single mothers at Upscale Resale
Upscale Resale is a high-end consignment shop that sells donated clothing, furniture, home decor, books, and other items. Upscale Resale is also a major support center for single and underprivileged mothers with new babies or young children. Expectant mothers can earn vouchers and coupons by taking free childcare and life skills classes with LifeSavers. Those vouchers can be redeemed for free car seats, baby supplies, and discounted items at Upscale Resale.
LifeSavers Foundation relies partially on generous donations from individuals and businesses alike to support its mission and operations. But much of the operating budget comes directly from Upscale Resale. Everything sold at Upscale Resale is donated by a member of the community. Volunteers check every item before deciding what will go on the sales floor. The remaining items are sent to other donation centers or recycling centers, depending on the condition.
The Venafi team had a chance to spend time with LifeSavers staff and volunteers. They met the clinic team the Doctor Spot and employees and volunteers from Upscale Resale.
“We looked at many nonprofit organizations throughout north Texas,” said Mike Dodson, Vice President of Worldwide Customer Security Strategy & Solutions, Venafi. “We were moved by LifeSavers’ mission and work, which is making a real difference where it matters: directly with people in need, at the point of need.”
Venafi’s gift will make a profound difference in the lives of many women and children throughout Dallas county. Their donation will cover the costs of important medical care, critical baby supplies, and medications for children.
