Blue Technologies considers it a privilege to help the communities where we work and live. That conviction motivates Blue Technologies employees to contribute their time and resources to a number of charitable causes.
Organizations dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children are particularly dear to the hearts of our team members and executive staff. That’s why we’ve allied ourselves with OhioGuidestone.
OhioGuidestone is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development, physical, and mental health of individuals and families living at or below the poverty line. The organization serves over 20,000 people in need throughout Ohio annually, and we are proud to sponsor the organization’s Golf Club & Classic, which raises more than more than $200K annually.
But the holidays are the most important moment of the year for OhioGuidestone. At the end of the year, we take particular care to bring joy to the children and families that OhioGuidestone serves.
In December we erect an undecorated Giving Tree in the lobby of our Cleveland headquarters. As employees contribute loads of gifts, we hang additional ornaments until the tree is sagging with cheer. The lobby is stuffed with gifts – including toys, clothing, video games, bicycles, and more – ready for delivery to OhioGuidestone. Blue Technologies also hosts an annual holiday party that serves over 300 clients of OhioGuidestone’s inner-city programs, celebrating the season with food, games, music, entertainment, and gifts for every child.

Individual members of our team have also earned the spotlight for community participation and service. In 2015, President Paul Hanna was honored to accept the Starlight Guardian Humanitarian Award in recognition of his spirit of giving.
Blue Technologies has also been recognized as one of the top office technology providers in Ohio prioritizing community service work. We accepted 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.
