LearnSmart Donates to USO Tampa Bay
Tampa, FL – November 2, 2012 – LearnSmart, a leading provider of IT technology and skills training located in Tampa, Florida, has announced a charitable contribution to the USO Tampa Bay that includes a cash donation and complimentary educational resources for the U.S. military. The contribution, valued at greater than $10,000, includes a $5,000 cash donation plus a complete package of complimentary IT and business skills training made available to US military personnel and veterans. The complimentary training will be provided through open online access to the LearnSmart Cloud Classroom for all visitors and staff at the USO Center located at Tampa International Airport in Tampa, Florida. The contribution is the latest in a series of charitable donations to the USO Tampa Bay, an organization that serves local military members and their families. This continuing partnership between LearnSmart and the USO Tampa Bay is part of LearnSmart’s initiative to give back to the community through organizations such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, the Boys and Girls Club of Tampa Bay, and other non-profit organizations.
"Supporting our military, past and present, is a role everyone should take part in," says Jay Gandee, President of LearnSmart. "For this reason, LearnSmart gladly partners with the USO in their efforts." According to Gandee, each time military members visit the USO Center, they will be offered access to the latest IT certification training, soft skills and business training, and leadership training. "Participating in LearnSmart training provides military members with the opportunity to continue learning and increasing their skill set," said US Army Captain Brian Bashara. "With this training, LearnSmart can further equip them for greater service, in and out of the military."
The USO records that throughout the year, nearly 300,000 military members and their families pass through the Tampa International Airport. The USO Center is located inside the airport providing Internet and phone access, laptops, and refreshments to the traveling military members. The USO aims to support troops by addressing their social, morale, welfare, and entertainment needs through various programs and services.
