community service, community involvement

Blue Technologies considers it a privilege to help the communities in which we work and live. That conviction motivates Blue Technologies employees to contribute their time and resources to a number of charitable causes.

Particularly dear to Blue’s heart are those organizations dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children.

That’s why we’ve allied ourselves notably with OhioGuidestone, formerly Berea Children’s Home & Family Services, since 1996. A nonprofit dedicated to the development, physical, and mental health of individuals and families living at or below the poverty line, OhioGuidestone serves over 20,000 people in need annually throughout Ohio.

community service, community involvement, giving treeWe are proud to serve as the lead sponsor for their organization’s annual Golf Club & Classic, which grosses more than $175K in net gross profit for the non-profit agency. And we take particular care during the holidays to bring joy to the children and families OhioGuidestone serves.

At Christmas, an undecorated Giving Tree is erected in the lobby of our Cleveland headquarters. With each load of gifts employees contribute, ornaments are hung – until the tree is sagging with cheer and the lobby is stuffed with gifts of toys, clothing, video games, bicycles and more to be delivered to OhioGuidestone. Blue also hosts an annual holiday party that serves over 300 clients of Ohio Guidestone’s inner-city programs, celebrating the season with food, games, music, entertainment and gifts for every child.

Additionally, Blue Technologies proudly supports:

  • Alzheimer’s Association
  • Bellefaire JCB
  • Children’s Development Center
  • Cleveland Cavaliers Youth Fund
  • Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital
  • Cornerstone of Hope
  • Diversity Center
  • The Gathering Place
  • Our Lady of the Wayside
  • Project Love
  • And more

In 2015, President Paul Hanna was honored with the Starlight Guardian Humanitarian Award to recognize his spirit of giving.

Blue Technologies has also been recognized as a company for our community service work with the Pillar Award from Smart Business Magazine and Medical Mutual in 2004, 2008 and 2011, as well as the CVS Good Samaritan Award in 2008.
