Enterprise information management software firm OpenText recently announced a combined donation of $1 million to food banks in OpenText communities around the world.
“The demand for food banks has never been greater, and we wanted to do our part to meet this heightened and historic need,” said Mark Barrenechea, CEO and chief technology officer, OpenText. “This past holiday season, OpenText teams in 58 communities around the world supported local food banks to help ensure everyone had enough to eat. These communities support OpenText every day, and we are grateful to have been able to support them in turn.”
The donations will help food banks provide up to four million meals to individuals and families in 21 countries.
“OpenText allocated $100,000 for the Philippines — the largest donation the company made in the Asia Pacific region — given the magnitude of the challenges faced by our nation,” said Augie Mendoza Jr., VP and site leader, Philippines. “Besides the pandemic-related challenges, there are many communities here that haven’t recovered yet from the devastation caused by the recent typhoons.”
