Giving Back: Keeping Families Connected During Difficult Times at Brent's Place
Great things happen when great companies come together. That's what happened recently when Video Conference Gear, AVer Information Inc., and Zoom Video Communications came together to provide two fully configured Zoom Rooms for Brent's Place in Aurora, Colorado, a long-term home-away-from-home for families and children with life threatening illnesses.
These Zoom Rooms will help keep families connected during one of the most challenging times during their lives. benefit Brent’s Place, a long-term home away from home for families and children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses while they receive treatment at local hospitals.
The benefits go beyond the ability to video conference with loved ones during this trying time. Family members can utilize the Zoom Rooms to work remotely, stay up-to-date on school assignments, access the internet, and participate in meetings that would otherwise not have been possible. “The Zoom Rooms at Brent’s Place will help families connect with their loved ones during this stressful time in their lives,” said Ryan Pinke, CEO and founder of VideoConferenceGear.com.
