Out in the Community: September 2017

Join Us October 7th to Support the Howard County Autism Society

On Saturday, October 7th, Howard Tech Advisors will be gathering at Centennial Lake in Ellicott City for the 11th Annual One Step Closer Autism Walk & 5k. Our team, Sam’s Squad, is Howard Tech employees and their families. Some will be running, some walking, some passing out water along the route, and ALL will be cheering the participants on!
We would love to get together with you and your families, beyond our normal relationship, and celebrate our commitment to serving this incredible community! We will have a tent with beverages, breakfast and donuts!
As a part of our support, we are also setting out to fundraise $5,000 for the Howard County Autism Society. If we reach our goal, Ananta’s wife, Stacia, will be delivering his favorite pie, Chocolate Mousse, right to his face. You don’t want to miss that, do you?!
Join us! Here is a link to our team page to see our fundraising efforts, join our team, or make a donation.

Helping Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey 

This hurricane season has been devastating to so many in southern United States and other countries in the Caribbean, Atlantic Ocean, and Gulf. Earlier this month, after Hurricane Harvey devastated Houston, Texas – a local teacher was determined to help. He reached out to U-haul and asked if they would donate a moving truck to get supplies to the affected area. Sure enough, they did. Dave Boteler, a special education teacher at Reservoir High School, sent out an email to staff that went viral on social media and other outlets. Howard Tech Advisors shared the email internally and externally and received several donations.

On Friday, September 7th, Mr. Boteler encountered a problem he didn’t think he would have. The supplies that were donated from our community would not fit in one truck. He had to rent a second. Both were full of supplies that were in high-demand. Thank you to everyone who donated to Mr. Boteler to help the residents of Houston and surrounding areas that were affected by Hurricane Harvey.
