FREMONT, Calif. /California Newswire/ — TeamF1, Inc., a leader in embedded networking and security software solutions, has stepped up as a "Priceless Sponsor" for the City of Fremont's scholarship programs as a part of its F1rstHand community outreach program. TeamF1's F1rstHand program is the company's effort to lend a helping hand to the community by investing in deserving local causes.
According to TeamF1 President Mukesh Lulla, sponsoring this initiative is an integral part of his company's corporate social responsibility program. "With this sponsorship, we continue to pursue what we refer to as a 'good-for-nothing' goal – bringing about good while expecting nothing in return for the company," said Mukesh.
Headquartered in Fremont for over a decade, TeamF1 has been a major supporter of the city's initiative and this year, inspired by the success and growth of the seasonal programs and increased scholarship enrollments, decided to upgrade to the "Priceless Sponsor" level to enable the city's initiative to reach its goals.
"The generosity that TeamF1 has shown throughout the years is inspirational. It's companies like these that show that Fremont businesses are not just bright and innovative, but also have heart and are truly making an impact in people's lives," said City of Fremont's Mayor Bill Harrison.
Fremont's Parks and Recreation Department uses 100 percent of donations to offer different types of scholarships for local low-income families with children aged 0-17. Some of these scholarship programs include General Scholarships for any of the recreation classes, Summer Play Camp Scholarships for up to three free weeks of activities for children aged 6-11, Art Scholarships, and Water Park Scholarships with free entrance to the city's Aqua Adventure water park.
"Fremont is an active and vibrant community. The recreational and educational programs we offer are growing, participation is increasing and so is the number of families applying for scholarships," added Lance Scheetz, Fremont Parks and Rec Revenue Manager. "It really does take a village to raise our children and our local business sponsors such as TeamF1 are key to successfully meeting our goal of having as many families benefit from these programs as possible. To create a connected, accomplished and happy community in our city, every bit truly helps."
"Lance and his team have put up an impressive amount of work by initiating a wide variety of fun activities our local youth and their families can participate in, regardless of their financial status," added Rica Ortiz, Business Operations Manager for TeamF1 and the person spearheading the initiative for the company. "We are very pleased that our F1rstHand Community Outreach initiative helps in a small way to make these programs accessible to more local children."
The 2014 spring and summer camp guides of Fremont are packed with a range of educational and fun activities, including arts, crafts, music and cooking for children, various enrichment programs for youth, as well as fitness and health camps for adults.
