LEAMINGTON, ON, March 27, 2020 /CNW/ - WaveDirect, a telecommunications service provider, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex, a national mentorship organization for local youth, has announced an exciting technological partnership.
As Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex's Official Tech Sponsor, WaveDirect will supply Big Brothers Big Sisters of Windsor Essex with a range of new hardware. Through this partnership, Big Brothers Big Sisters staff can continue to serve the children and youth of the local Windsor Essex community, including over 800 children through the organization's seven different mentorship programs.
