Yesterday, Secretary of the Department of Veterans’ Services (DVS) Coleman Nee presented a Certificate of Appreciation to Google, for their recent computer donations made to DVS, and participation in several events aimed at helping Massachusetts veterans over the course of 2013. Secretary Nee met with Google’s Steve Vinter, Site Director; Steve Arthur, Head of Industry; and Curt Fennell, Site Reliability Engineer at Google’s Cambridge offices.
Recently, Google donated ten laptops and five desktop computers to DVS as part of Google’s “Goodware” Program, which donates used and refurbished computers and other devices to schools and nonprofit organizations. This donation helps DVS staff and Massachusetts’ veterans connect with other soldiers, veterans, and families.
In addition, Google has been a tremendous partner at events that help Massachusetts veterans throughout 2013. Google held training sessions for DVS staff to learn how to use Google Plus Hangouts as a method of communicating and supporting fellow veterans around the country. Google also spoke at the DVS Student Veterans Conference and donated two Chromebooks for DVS use, and created online applications, such as GoogleForVeterans.com and VetsResumeBuilder.appspot.com, to help veterans prepare for the civilian workforce.
