IT and engineering service firm honored for volunteer efforts

A global IT and engineering service firm that developed a charitable seed to table initiative has been recognized for its service.

Houston, Texas-based Techwave received the “President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA)” in recognition of its commitment to volunteerism and community service. The accolade highlights the company’s dedication, honoring its employees for their positive impact on communities globally and serving as an inspiration to others, according to a news release.

One of Techwave’s initiatives includes partnering with the Houston Food Bank and America’s Grow-a-row for a seed to table initiative. Techwavians actively participated in various stages of the food chain, including planting seeds, harvesting crops, and distributing food to Houston area families in need. The company covered the associated expenses, including seeds, crop management, packaging, and transportation, demonstrating its commitment to making a difference, according to the release.

In addition, throughout the year, Techwave employees enthusiastically volunteer their time and effort to assist the Houston Food Bank in providing nutritious food to individuals in the Houston area who are grappling with chronic health conditions as part of their Food for Change Program.

During the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, Techwave launched the Feed the Frontline initiative, where employees personally showcased support to frontline workers and local Houston restaurants that were impacted by the uncertainty of the pandemic.

“We are delighted to receive the President’s Volunteer Service Award,” Raj Gummadapu, CEO, said in the release. “This recognition truly humbles and honors our team at Techwave. It underscores our unwavering commitment to giving back and creating a positive impact in communities worldwide. We firmly believe that through the power of volunteerism, we can effectively address the pressing challenges our world faces today.”

Adding to it, he said “Techwave’s employees have consistently demonstrated their passion and dedication by actively engaging in various community initiatives, volunteering their time and expertise to make a lasting difference. We take immense pride in our employees, whose efforts have transcended local boundaries, making a global impact and inspiring others to join our cause. Their dedication and passion have touched communities far and wide, serving as a catalyst for positive change.”
