October was a month full of activities and giving back which gave ARRC Technology the opportunity to interact with local businesses, the community, and some amazing organizations.
On October 1st ARRC Technology was a proud sponsor of Wine, Women, & Shoes benefitting CASA of Kern County. CASA provides volunteer-based advocates for abused and neglected children going through the court system that speak up and fight for the best interest of the child.
On Saturday, October 15th ARRC Technology was a part the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) of Kern County’s 2016 NAMIWalks. One of NAMI’s main focus is to break the stigma that surrounds mental illness. They offer support groups for individuals that have been diagnosed with a mental illness and for their family members. Often times an individual cannot bear the weight that their mental illness causes them so they take their own life; NAMI offers support for the family members they leave behind with their Survivors Support group. They also work closely with the police departments to train officers on how to recognize and handle a situation involving an individual suffering from a mental illness.
On October 27th ARRC Technology had an exhibitor booth at the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce Business Expo. It was a great night of meeting and interacting with local businesses and members of the community.
Congratulations to Marisol Cruz from American Business Machines! She won the drawing for our Halloween Party Basket at the Business Expo.
On October 29th ARRC Technology donated an HP Elite Tablet to be auctioned off at the Alzheimer’s Disease Association of Kern County’s (ADAKC’s) annual Clay Shoot Tournament.
Thank you to everyone that placed a bid at the auction and congratulations to the winner!
