Microsoft Receives Hunger’s Hope Award From Second Harvest
San Antonio, Texas, June 29, 1998 — The connection between hunger relief and Microsoft software was celebrated last night when Reseller Marketing Representative Debe McKeand accepted Second Harvest’s Hunger’s Hope Award for Microsoft at the nonprofit organization’s national conference in San Antonio, Texas.
Microsoft recently provided Second Harvest, the fifth largest charity in the United States, with more than $1.467 million in software, including Windows NT, Office ’97 and FrontPage. This software donation will help Second Harvest open lines of communication between all of the organizations that make up the vital national food network, which brings hunger relief to millions of people.
McKeand thanked Second Harvest on Microsoft’s behalf not just for the honor, but also for being such an important organization that reaches out to so many people with the gift of hunger relief. She commended the organization for taking time to integrate PC technology into its important mission of bringing food to people who need it most.
